Underrated Architects and there projects!

ok i was just looking at the best architects thread and noticed that alot of good architects were not even mentioned ,i know some of these might not be thought of when we consider great-best architects but these guys sure do design some masterpieces.

architects such as rem koolhaas,richard rogers and renzo piano create some great designs but yet still aren't mentioned with the fosters,pei,and calatrava or gehry.


some name some more and post some of there works.......

There are many great and good architects out there. Some endure and are more noted for their interiors. For example, Look at John Portman's work - he developed the massive atrium lobby that has become a feature of first class hotels around the world. Some of his interiors are breathtaking.

Some architects are fashionable for only a limited, especially as their work ages and its distinctiveness begins to wear off. In particular I think of the school of "brutalism" and some of the concrete "bunkers" of the 60"s - most look rather pathetic now. And I seriously wonder about the long term aesthetics of some of the ehry and Gehry copies of metal facades and how well they will weather.

Gaudi isn't underrated, most people can recognize the value of his unique buildings. There is an underrated American architect who's style is very similar to Gaudi. His name is James Hubbell, and his buildings are so organic.

Hubbell Residence, Ramona, California.



Beaton Residence, Jamul, California.


La Jolla Guesthouse, La Jolla, California.
