i am not impressed with Pelli that much at all, but foster i think has done some very outstanding projects.


However, i do agree with Blabbyboy in some respects.,

Pei - Pelli (Can not say one like the best)

Plenty of you are saying Calatrava but or my mistake or few buildings have been built yet (wait for the one in NY, and let it see in Valencia, just a project), anyway you know now what is happening same that with music that even some people sell without to sing

3.) I.M. Pei
3.) Santiago Calatrava
4.) SOM
5.) Frank Lloyd Wright (even though he didn't specialize in skyscrapers, but nonetheless he is one of the best)

I may be a little late to the party, but here are my choices:

1. Raymond Hood. In just twelve years he produced an astounding array of influential skyscrapers: Chicago Tribune Tower, American Radiator Building (NY), Daily News Building (NY), McGraw-Hill (NY), and the mighty Rockefeller Center's RCA buiding (NY). Tragically died at the height of his career.

2. Philip Johnson. After designing a lot of international style boxes, helped evolve the Post-Modern style (thank God!). Less is (a) bore.

3. Albert Kahn. He only designed a few skyscrapers such as the GM and Fisher buildings in Detroit but his factory designs, besides revolutionizing the industrial workplace, are also said to have influenced many modern architects. He built all types of buildings and he got a lot more commissions than FLLW.
