I've mentioned a couple of buildings earlier, but there are others as well.

I really like Santiago Calatrava's buildings. Here are some of my favorites:

Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, Valencia

That is L'Hemisferic in front of it.

I felt this was an appropriate thread to honor with my first post. I realize I'm off to a bad start by not heeding the thread title "What is your favorite building in the world?" (singular). Well, here are my TWO favorite, considering I wake up every morning with a beautiful Mt. Washington view of these magnificient gothic style structures:

University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning


Pittsburgh Plate Glass' headquarters building (PPG 1)
