for simplicity serenity and non-encumbered lifestyle i'd go italian palladio style. if there's a little more available money, i would add an italian garden/ manmade lake in front of the house, and a nook at the back with a touch of italian fountain/garden.

I can't think of a style that I can favor, because there will always be someone who would mess up and make really bad buildings regardless of the style that it's designed in.

But my favourite 3 architects right now are:

1) Peter Zumthor

-his buildings emphasizes the user experience and user comfort, something that can not be conveyed really well on computer images. I find that they are really poetic. They are unique - not in the "look at me I have a weird shape" unique, but the inventive ways they create appropriate moods for the user as the user experience the building. The transitions between the moods are also superb.

2) Lebbeus Woods

-I see him more as an architecture professor than a practicing architect, since his ideas are simply too ahead of his time to be made.

To me, his works are there to inspire and motivate archicture students, architects, and the public; make them realize their true capabilities, and plant ideas into their heads instead of telling them explicitely. He also writes insightful architectural essays and books.

In the future, I hope to study in the classes that he teaches.

3) Ando Tadao

-If I want an architect to design my own home, I can never go wrong with picking Ando Tadao. His spaces are meditative, minimalist yet sticking to traditions and history in subtle ways. Plus, similar to Peter Zumthor, you can tell that he really does have the client's best interest in mind instead of trying to trick you into using your own cash to pull off some unusable eye-candy in order to further his fame (something that many of the starchitects seems to be doing right now).

-In contrast, I don't know if I want Lebbeus Woods to design my house.

Sorry for being technical but St. Peter's is Baroque.


For me I really enjoy the contemporary architecture thats out there, stuff by Norman Foster, and Pelli, and Renzo Piano, and Calatrava.

Yeah, I just made up the name, but I'm referring to the new stone temples being built in India.
They are pretty much the same as the ancient temples, but they tend to combine styles from different schools of temple architecture.
Also, they have broken free from the old ritual restrictions of height and proportion.

eg.

and the Kerala style of wooden construction.

My favorite styles are:

1.-Mexican Baroque; it´s really beautiful mainly in churches:



2.- High Tech; I love glass in buildings




3.- Art Deco



I see Asian architecture is impressive, I like it so much.

I love all historical architecture styles. Futile to frame a ranking.
