    Im currently in grad school for architecture, so my answer to this thread will never be perfect. Just too much out there for me to post. Lets go..

    Morphosis.. one of my favorite firms. Very futuristic in their materiality and just the way the spaces are created. Would love to visit one of their buildings.

    Again, Chiba Golf Club, model, one of my classes used it as inspiration for our designs

    Sendai Mediatheque, another fav of mine, by Toyo Ito. Love the structural tubes, they run all of the infrastructure through those things!

    University of Cincinnati definitely has some interesting variety in the architechture of the buildings, they all look different :lol: the engineering building looks like a factory
