Vienna University of Economics Library and Learning Centre
Zaha Hadid Architects
Vienna, Austria

While most buildings remain in their place for decades, they can still express dynamic movement and fluidity. At least that is what the latest work one of the world's leading female architects, wants you to believe. With bundles of flowing curves around every corner, Hadid's new University of Economics Library and Learning Centre (LLC) in Vienna resembles a fancy stream-lined car rather than a traditional building. Situated at the center of a new university campus in Austria's capital, it is the biggest, tallest and most striking piece of architecture of the entire campus area.

Glasgow School of Art
Steven Holl Architects
Glasgow, United Kingdom

To design an addition to a well-recognized and globally respected masterpiece must be one of the most difficult tasks for architects. Steven Holl, one of the most talented American architects of our time, had to face this challenge in Scotland's largest city: Situated directly across the street from the main building of the Glasgow School of Art, the climax of the Scottish Art Nouveau, the prestigious Academy of Art asked him to construct a new building. It was inaugurated on April 9th - a good hundred years after the inauguration of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's magnum opus.
