  2. Wilhelm Sasnal
  3. Lucy McKenzie
  4. Trisha Donnelly
  5. Simon Starling
  6. Paul Chan
  7. Cindy Sherman

Ten architects whose work I've liked this decade

This is very much a list of the usual suspects. The selection is biased towards stuff I've seen in person, not that I've seen everything linked. But this might be of interest to someone too lazy to look up a Pritzker Prize list or something.

Herzog & de Meuron
Frank Gehry
Thom Mayne/Morphosis
Zaha Hadid
Jean Nouvel
Rafael Moneo
Norman Foster
Álvaro Siza
Don Bates & Peter Davidson/Lab Architecture Studio
Rem Koolhaas
