Why Uruguay? - ARCHITECTURE AND ENGINEERING


Home to Rafael Viñoly, who designed the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, and Carlos Ott, who designed Paris’ Opéra de la Bastille, Uruguay is a cradle of award-winning architects.

Uruguayan architects are globally known for their creative and technical abilities, strong work, team ethic, and international experience. Due to a generalist and balanced professional training, Uruguayan professionals develop expertise in multiple areas, including design, production, planning, and management, as well as in different architectural software (AutoCAD, Revit, and ArchiCAD) and construction techniques. This feature allows architects to obtain and develop a full understanding of the entire architectural process, thus granting to global architecture companies the easy access to solution-oriented professionals qualified to engage in world-class projects. 


“Uruguay’s large pool of talented professionals has allowed our company to increase its productivity and profit margin while working in a similar time zone to the US. The quality of the country’s human capital combine with training resources and other government support to create a strong value proposition for Uruguay.” 

Walter Hughes, FAIA, Vice President of Humphreys and Partners Architects and Head of Operations in Uruguay
