Without a doubt Richard Rogers' Lloyds of London comes first for nominations! Its just brilliant. The sheer magnitude of the immense structure and as an architectural centrepiece itself in the City of London is just a great asset. In my personal opinion its Richard Rogers' best piece of work. Not only because its in London and I live there too because thats not the case. See it in real life and it's just beyond imagination.

But anyway:

1 - Lloyds of London, London by Richard Rogers:


2 - The Louvre Museum, Paris by Ieoh Ming Pei


3 - La Grande Arche, Paris by Johann Otto von Spreckelsen
