Vanity Fair Magazine recently “asked the world’s leading architects, critics, and deans of architecture schools two questions: what are the five most important buildings, bridges, or monuments constructed since 1980, and what is the greatest work of architecture thus far in the 21st century?”
Here’s what they came up with. Frank Gehry’s Bilbao Guggenheim is the clear winner – no surprise there. I enjoy Peter Zumthor’s Thermal Baths in Switzerland (pictured above). But there are so many iconic and interesting structures that are missing from this list. Vanity Fair, I’m disappointed.
