They are both designed by the Spanish neofuturistic architect Santiago Calatrava, he managed to develop a very distinctive style in my opinion.
Ponte della Costituzione in Venice. I like how elegant and unobtrusive the bridge looks.

^ That architecture looks more like it could fit with the 31st century rather than the 21st.


Anyway: Here is the Las Vegas City Center.

This thread shouldn't include renders and fakes imho, only completed buildings and actual footage.

Gare do Oriente, or the Lisbon Oriente Station. Lisboa, Portugal.
This one isn't 21st century, because it was completed in 1998. It's a masterpiece designed by Santiago Calatrava and built by Necso.
By the way, here's a cool song and video to complement the structure

Another contemporary marvel from Lisboa, the interaction with the neighboring historical building is amazing.

I don't get to see much recent architecture, but I'd still like to nominate Villa Mediteranee from Marseille as my favourite so far from what I could see on site, so far. The MUCEM building right near it is also great and I love but, but it is much more tame.
