Vienna, Austria

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.

G-Star Raw HQ
OMA
Amsterdam, The Netherlands

In 1989, a small designer clothing company was founded in Amsterdam, which soon went on to become Europe's most iconic raw denim company. Originally named Gap Star, the firm is now known as G-Star Raw. Just like the denim that made the company famous, the notion of raw surfaces is also at the core of their new headquarters, designed by Rem Koolhaas and his Rotterdam-based Office for Metropolitan Architecture.
