With 338 buildings within the running, we have a tendency to examined the contenders and created our own order. From a ribbon-inspired wedding chapel in city to Zaha Hadid’s £240 million London Aquatics Centre, these are the twenty-seven buildings that actually jumped out and caught our eye.
Scrolling through these hotels, schools, workplace buildings, and more, you will see many dramatic slopes, sharp corners, and swooping curves. Oh, and glass. Tons and much of glass.
