Salk Institute by Louis Kahn, legendary architect of the modern era.
Also by Kahn, the Kimbell Art Museum (which I have been to, probably 3 yrs ago)

Another Morphosis, Uni of Cincinnati
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!

Another of theirs-
