"If given the chance to pick the brains of numerous starchitects about the most important buildings of the 20th century, you’d doubtlessly get a broad—and contentious—spectrum of answers. Pritzker Prize–winner Thom Mayne took on this task after noticing, in the architect’s words, “a declining awareness of historical precedent among my students.” Together with UCLA’s Now Institute, Mayne polled 40 architects—including Tadao Ando, Peter Eisenman, Daniel Libeskind, Zaha Hadid, and others—to list the most influential buildings of the previous century. The results, to be released this fall, have been distilled in 100 Buildings, an essential guidebook for architecture students and design buffs alike, detailing the enduring influence of projects ranging from Villa Savoye to the Vanna Venturi House."
"To create this primer on iconic modern buildings, more than 50 internationally renowned architects and educators—including the late Zaha Hadid—were asked to list their top 100 20th-century architectural projects. The results—from the Gehry House in Santa Monica to the Museu de Arte de São Paulo in Brazil—do not disappoint."
