Following the announcement of the results of the competition ”Redesign of the Hotel Intercontinental/WEV Site” the Az W is delighted to be able to introduce the prize-winner to the public.

Isay Weinfeld (born in 1952 in São Paulo) completed his studies of architecture at the Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie in 1975. In addition to running his architecture practice, which was set up in 1973, Weinfeld is also successful in the areas of exhibition design, stage design, furniture and object design and, in particular, as a film-maker. His work is characterized by a special sensibility to materiality, surfaces and atmosphere that manifests itself in the quality of his details.

In his lecture “Funnel” he introduces the references and inspiration that influence his work: “I get inspired by everything that surrounds me. As references or influences, they all converge into my work as an architect. And it is little of that that flows into this funnel every day that I will share at the lecture at Architekturzentrum Wien.”
