  3. Santiago de Calatrava

    Santiago de Calatrava and his works:

    Spanish-born architect (July 28, 1951), and engineer, and urbanist, Santiago Calatrava, has been practicing on a professional level for about seventeen years. He made a name for himself in only 10 years, and established an architectural and engineering practice in Zürich (1981) and Paris (1989).

    After studying architecture, he studied civil engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. After finishing his studies at the engineering school, he continued his studies as a doctoral student at the same school.


  4. Frank Lloyd Wright

    The Greatest American Architect of all Time:Frank Lloyd Wright. Frank Lloyd Wright (1867,1959) who had influenced the entire course of American Architecture, is no doubt one of the most influential American architects of the 21st century. Even during his lifetime, Wright was considered a legend. It might be true that, as some claim, this was due to Wright's a natural ability for self promotion and his scandal-laden personal life (the failure of his first two marriages and for the 1914 fire and murders at his Taliesin studio).


  5. Rem Koolhaas

    Rem Koolhaas and thedutch architecture: Professor of The Practice of Architecture and Urban Design at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and the winner of the Pritzker Prize, Rem Koolhaas is a Dutch architect, urbanist, and architectural theorist. He was born in 1944.

    Koolhaas began his career as a journalist and scriptwriter in the Netherlands and then in Los Angeles. He also attended the Architectural Association School in London, followed by further studies at Cornell University in New York.


  6. Alvar Aalto

    The Father of Modern Scandinavian Architecture: Alvar Aalto. Although, he didn't design the most amazing buildings in history, Alvar Aalto surely deserves to be named ''The Father of Modern Scandinavian Architecture,'' not because he’s the greatest architect, but because he is one of the best of the earliest Scandinavian pioneers in the field of modern architecture.

    He is among the first and most influential architects of Nordic modernism who had closely followed and had personal contacts with other pioneers in Sweden, such as Asplund and Sven Markelius.
