Paulo Mendes da Rocha won the 2006 Pritzker Architecture Prize, bringing him to the attention of a worldwide audience after many years of producing buildings mainly in Brazil. He is known for his provocative use of concrete and steel in innovative architectural designs that are both critically acclaimed and popular.

Widely credited with revitalizing the city, Paulo Mendes da Rocha has contributed many notable cultural buildings to his native São Paulo. While perhaps best known for his Brazilian Sculpture Museum in São Paulo (1988), other built projects include the Brazilian pavilion at Expo '79 (Osaka, 1969), Serra Dourada Stadium (Goiânia, 1973), Pinacoteca do Estado (São Paulo, 1993), and FIESP Cultural Center (São Paulo 1997).

He has also designed furniture, such as the iconic Paulistano Armchair which was reissued in 2004 by French furniture and accessories retailer Objekto.
