Zaha Hadid

First woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004, Zaha Hadid was the first woman to win the Design Museum Design of the Year Award in 2014, and the RIBA Gold Medal in 2015. She is known for her neo-futuristic elongated structures that curve up the sky offering multiple perspective points.

Some of her best work includes the Mind Zone at the Millenium Dome in London, fluid furniture designs, design of the Vilnius Guggenheim Hermitage Museum that won the international design competition, Signature Towers in Dubai, Innovation Tower for Hong Kong Polythechnic University, and Bridge Pavilion constructed at an expo in Spain.

At present, she is working on the 2022 FIFA World Cup Stadium being built in Qatar.

Frank Gehry

98% of what gets built today is shit, says Frank. This 86-year old man has not gone senile. He has every right to say so because many buildings built by him - including the private Gehry Residence – have gone on to become world-renowned attractions today. Vanity Fair has called him 'The Most Important Architect of Our Age'.

Some of his best works are the titanium-clad Guggenheim Museum in Spain; Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles, Dancing House in Prague, Louis Vuitton Foundation and the the Cinémathèque Française in Paris, the Vitra Design Museum and the Marta Herford Museum in Germany, MIT Ray and Maria Stata Center in Cambridge, Experience Music Project in Seattle and many, many more.

Renzo Piano

Renzo Piano was the teacher of Zaha Hadid and what a Guru he is! He was selected as one of the Top 100 Most Influence People in the World by TIME in 2006. Architecture critic Nicola Ouroussoff famously said, Serenity of Renzo's best buildings almost make you believe that you live in a civilized world.
