Although Machado and Silvetti Associates was not incorporated until 1985,
co-founders and principals Jorge Silvetti and Rodolfo Machado have been in
association since 1974. Working together on a variety of diverse projects, the
unifying theme in Machado and Silvetti’s work is not a signature aesthetic, but
a commitment to expressing the unique and important aspects of each
individual project, integrating these characteristics harmoniously with the
client’s aspirations and into the environment as a whole. The firm has
developed special expertise in Art Museums, educational institutions and
urban design and planning worldwide. Some of the firm’s notable projects
include the Getty Villa in Southern California, the Bowdoin College Museum
of Art in Maine, the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of
Arkansas, and One Western Avenue at Harvard University.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, both Jorge Silvetti and Rodolfo Machado
studied architecture at UC Berkeley’s College of Environmental Design, before
becoming associates, and later partners.
