Here is a collection of the best architecture in the world you would love to know. Know about those best architecture and their architects.
Burj Khalifa Architect
Adrian Smith, George J. Efstathiou and Marshall Strabala
- Design: Adrian Smith
- Project Architect: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
Dubai is a city of exotic structures and is home to many architectural wonders. Palm Island and Burj Al Arab figure prominently among many others in Dubai’s architecture building. The Burj Khalifa architecture brings everyone in awe.
The tallest building in the world was unveiled to some 400,000 people and around the world in a crescendo of fireworks, lasers and fountain shows. The official height of the tower revealed as the “Burj Khalifa” was 828 meters (2,716.5 feet). The 828-meter tall skyscraper includes residential buildings, offices, a hotel and an observation deck on the 124th floor.
Burj Khalifa has redefined what is possible in the design and construction of Supertall buildings. This makes it one of the best architectures in the world.
By combining the latest technologies and cultural influences, the building serves as a global icon that is a model for future urban centres and appeals to the global movement towards compact and livable urban areas. The Tower and its surroundings are more centralized than any other new development in Dubai. Burj Khalifa’s mixed-use program focuses on the area’s building density and offers direct connections to local public transportation in the centre of a new downtown neighbourhood.
Zaha Hadid Architects
- Design: Zaha Hadid with Patrik Schumacher
- Project Director: Satoshi Ohashi
- Associate: Cristiano Ceccato
- Project Architect: Yoshi Uchiyama
Galaxy Soho, a commercial, office and entertainment in Beijing of four spherical structures clad in aluminum and stone and surrounded by pedestrian bridges. It is one of the most fascinating architectural buildings.
The Galaxy SOHO project in downtown Beijing for SOHO China is a 330,000 m² office, shopping and entertainment complex that is an integral part of the bustling city, inspired by the metropolis of Beijing. On 18 floors, three of which are underground, there are commercial areas around the courtyards on the lower floors, offices on floors 4-15, and restaurants and bars on the upper floor. Its architecture consists of four continuous and fluid volumes separated, fused or connected by stretched bridges. These volumes adapt in all directions and create a panoramic architecture without sharp corners or transitions that break the fluidity of its formal composition.
Swiss Re Tower Architect
Norman Foster and Ken Shuttleworth
30 St Mary Ax is also known in London as The Gherkin or The Swiss Re Tower. It was completed in 2004 and was designed by Foster and Partners with Arup. From the Thames, you can see this rocket-shaped building behind the Tower of London. It is a unique architectural building.
This project explored new digital design techniques with parametric modelling previously used by the automotive and aerospace industries. The diagonal structure optimizes the glazed façade with a maximum incidence of light for the room, which remains in a space separated from the environment.
The shape reduces the bulk of the appearance and reduces wind at the street level. The atriums allow the ventilation of the chimney and the deep penetration of the light in the centre. Operable windows and external blinds allow easy control of this light path. Even the structure “breathes”, contracting when the payload enters the building and expanding when people walk during the day.
Centre Georges Pompidou Architects
Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano
The Center Pompidou in Paris, the inside-out landmark that brought world attention to the movement.
The Pompidou Center, called Beaubourg by the locals, after the Paris district in which it is located, is a cultural landmark whose structure and mechanical services are visible outside the building.
The highly flexible art container was completed in 1977 by the British architect Rogers and the Italian architect Piano, who at the time worked together in their Rogers + Piano studio.
The structure and larger ventilation components have been painted white, the stairs and elevator structures have been painted silver-grey, the ventilation has been painted blue, the pipes and fire control pipes are painted silver. Green, the electrical elements are yellow and orange and the elevator motor. Rooms and wells, or elements, movement throughout the building are painted red. One of the “moving parts” that the centre is best known for is the escalator (painted red below) on the west façade, a tube that zigzags up to the top of the building and offers visitors an incredible view from the city of Paris.
Heydar Aliyev Center Architect
The 619,000 square meter Heydar Aliyev Center in Baku, Azerbaijan, is clad with reinforced concrete and polyester and is known for its curved façade.
The Heydar Aliyev Center (Azerbaijani: Heydər Əliyev Mərkəzi) is an important cultural centre in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, housed in an iconic building designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. Zaha Hadid Architect is an interior design architect. It is located in a 10-hectare public park near the Baku Congress Center.
One of the most critical and at the same time most demanding elements of the project was the architectural development of the building envelope. Our ambition to achieve such a continuous and seemingly homogeneous surface required a multitude of different functions, construction logics and technical systems that had to be brought together and integrated into the building envelope. Advanced computing enabled continuous monitoring and communication of these complexities among the many project participants.
The Heydar Aliyev Center essentially consists of two systems working together: a concrete structure combined with a spatial frame system. To achieve large column-free spaces that allow visitors to experience the fluidity of the interior, vertical structural elements are incorporated into the shell and façade system. The special geometry of the surface favours unconventional structural solutions, such as the introduction of curved “boot piers” to achieve reverse peeling of the surface from the floor to the west of the building and the “dovetail” taper of the cantilevered beams that form the building envelope on the east of the site.
