At first glance, the humble state of Iowa, located in the heart of the American Midwest, might seem an unlikely location for the work of starchitects.

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.
