“King Kongs” of Architecture? Notes

“Starchitects in the world”

Norman Foster peerless hi-tech

Renzo Piano elegantly refined frames

Richard Rogers vividly articulated structure

Zaha Hadid sculptural abstraction

Frank Gehry cartoonishly turbulent exterior shells

Herzog and de Meuron virtuosity of detail

Rem Koolhaas edgy forms that are simultaneously utopian and dystopian

blue-chip architects like Jean Nouvel, Thom Mayne, and I.M. Pei
