Some of the most extraordinary buildings in the world

From ancient times we have examples of great buildings that impressed entire world by the way were executed. To be an architect and have a sketch turned into a real construction is a very great opportunity to express yourself but also to prove that the more innovative your project is the more conventional barriers are eliminated.

As Victor Hugo said, “Architecture has recorded the great ideas of the human race. Not only every religious symbol, but every human thought has its page in that vast book“. We invite you to discover some of the greatest ideas of modern architecture all over the world.? Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom-Stilwerk from Vienna, Austria by?Jean Nouvel
