This canopy over the courtyard of the national anthropology museum in Mexico City is amazing. Supported by a single column and it has survived major quakes with no problems.

This is Unity Building in Liverpool just currently being completed. I personally like the residential building (taller one) but not the office building. Its a building that you either love or hate.

Thats just one store in the Bull Ring . That is the Selfridges shop and that is actually just a render that is not the actual design though it is very very similar.
