Other, quite good architects


Taste is a peculiar thing.
There's a number of architects that shall go unmentioned here.
The Bauhaus bunch, altogether — a minority of their work I do like, the majority I don't.
Claude Nicholas Jeanneret... A clear case of unjustified self-glorification (the amount of it).
I.M. Pei, the Louvre wrecker.
Richard Meier. A simplistic trend follower, obvious to "miss".
That's just to name a few.

But this leaves quite some still, some of whom one would not readily know of.
A simple list in no particular order follows here. See if you can find the common denominator.
Oh, a jump list, then:





Norman Foster.

This architect put on hold for the Good Architect list, due to his work on the (English!) National Gallery.
