I love good architecture regardless of style, however I find Art-Nouveau particularly good, sublime even, while Brutalism and Po-Mo seem to be universally ugly.

I love every style, except maybe brutalism. I just can't find something I really like about it.

I like Brutalism when it is rather clean-looking or creative with its use of concrete.

I think I either love, or hate brutal-ism, depends on the building.

Buildings like the Shard and 1WTC, 4WTC, etc.

I forgot about hi-tech or industrial architecture, I never found it so great.

favorite:
organic (frank lloyd wright, gaudi), art and crafts (greene & greene, bernard maybeck), certain kind of modernism, like this one


least favorite:
functionalism, brutalism (with exceptions), post modernism (gehry, calatrava, khoolas, libeskind.
I don't like architects in general like Le Corbusier, Adolf Loos, Mies Van Der Rohe (altough the Farnsworth house is absolutely beautiful). I find disgusting things like these

Gotta be Art Deco, followed by anything that takes my breath away - classical (Greek, Roman), Moorish, Classical Japanese/Chinese, Craftsman, International Style (Bauhaus), Art Nouveau (Liberty Style), Georgian, FL Wright, French Empire, most "local vernacular" architecture (structures built by ordinary people - their homes - to provide for a need - instead of "Architects"). Not in any particular order.

Least Favorite: Brutalism, Romanesque (HH Richardson - creepy horror movie insane asylums), Phillip Johnson's vastly overrated Chippendale Clock tower (they only "liked" it because it was "Phillip Johnson" and not some unknown Architect), All modern incarnations of "paste on" architecture and bad historic copies, Michael Graves early rusty corrugated sheet metal abortions, any "new" architects' "shock" crap just to get into the news...
