Affonso Eduardo Reidy (Paris, October 26, 1909 - Rio de Janeiro, August 10, 1964) was a Brazilian architect. He was the son of an English father and a Brazilian mother. Reidy entered the Escola Nacional de Belas Artes in Rio de Janeiro at age 17. He apprenticed with the French urban planner Alfred Agache (1875-1959) during his studies. Reidy graduated and became an architect in 1930. Lúcio Costa appointed him as a teaching assistant to the architect Gregori Warchavchik (1896-1972) at the Escola Nacional de Belas Artes in the same year.[1]
