Guillermo Jullian de la Fuente / 8 projects

Guillermo Jullian de la Fuente (1931–2008) was a noted Chilean architect and painter. Born in 1931, he studied architecture at the Catholic University of Valparaiso. After graduating, he moved to Europe and joined Le Corbusier’s office, where he worked from 1959–65 and contributed to the design of Harvard University’s Carpenter Center, the Knowledge Museum at Chandigarh, the Olivetti Laboratories, the Baghdad Stadium, the French embassy in Brasilia, and the Venice Hospital.

Following his work with Le Corbusier, Jullian de la Fuente established his own practice, Atelier Jullian, in Paris. The Atelier’s work included projects in France, Spain, Madagascar, Brazil, Algeria, Iraq, and Morocco. In the mid-1980s he moved to the U.S. where he opened a new office with Ann Pendleton in 1987. Together they designed several projects including the astronomer Carl Sagan’s home in Ithaca, New York. Throughout the late 1980s and the 1990s Jullian de la Fuente taught at several American architecture schools, including The Cooper Union, Harvard University, Cornell University, and the University of Pennsylvania.

In 2004 Jullian de la Fuente returned to Chile, where he continued to teach and received his final design commission for Maison Mars, a residential project.
