Rafael Viñoly gets USC job after donor steps in

In an unprecedented move, the University of South Carolina has cancelled the architectural bidding process for the design of the new $90 million Moore School of Business, to allow the donor, Darla Moore, to select an architect of her choosing.

Her architect of choice is Rafael Viñoly Architects, a finalist for the project. While no rules were broken in the process, four Columbia, S.C. firms estimated they spent $100,000 each chasing the job. The architect’s fee, which is estimated at $4 million or more, will be a gift from the donor’s private foundation.
