Update: I recently discovered several new lists of Best Architecture, Best Buildings, etc., and added them to the existing lists. I also went through the Best Architecture and Best Architecture – Chronological lists and added more pictures: I mean, LOTS MORE PICTURES. I tried to show aerial views in many cases, and also street level views of tall buildings. For ruins, I tried to find artist’s conceptions of what the building looked like in its heyday. I think you will like the improvements. Click on the links below to see the new, improved sites:
Best Architecture of All Time – The Critics’ Picks
— lists every work of architecture on 4 or more of the 24+ original source lists
— organized by rank (that is, with the items on the most lists at the top)
— items on the same number of lists are organized in chronological order
Best Architecture of all Time – Chronological
— considerably longer list than the above list
— lists all the buildings/architectural works on 3 or more of the original source lists
— organized in chronological order by date that construction began (if available)
As a result of the new Best Architecture lists I found, I was able to add 7 new buildings to the lists. They are:
- St. Pancras Railway Station. London, England, UK.
- Natural History Museum. London, England, UK.
- Imperial Hotel. Tokyo, Japan (destroyed in 1968)
- Washington National Cathedral. Washington, D.C.
- Getty Center, J. Paul Getty Museum. Los Angeles, California, US.
- Reichstag (restoration and renovation). Berlin, Germany.
- The Shard (London Bridge Tower). London, England, UK.
