Sir Norman Foster.

He may have produced 1 or 2 abominations, but the vast majority of his work is outstanding, and the sheer number of projects he's been involved in is astonishing.

Cesar Pelli and I.M. Pei are definitly one of my favourite architects because i like the style. But since this thread is on the best architect, I have to say Norman Foster for his originality and success in the Pompiduo Centre.
