Have you ever passed by a building or a bridge that has a charm of its own? Though it is essentially made of the same brick, stone and cement just as any other building, what makes it different from the rest is its architectural beauty. Architecture in itself today is a multicultural society that has a rich eclectic and innovative tradition to it. What’s more, they are the reflection of the historic past and the contemporary present. The Pyramids of Giza or the Golden Pavilion of Japan or even Taj Mahal of India are few of the most notable early constructions and architectural wonders. What gives them the edge over others is their instant recognition. Architectural marvels are known thus for their ingenious design, cutting-edge innovation and pioneering work of art.

Be it Frank Llyod Wright and his prairie-styled buildings such as Guggenheim Museum and Fallingwater residence, or Philip Johnson and his forward thinking architectural style in the form of Crystal Cathedral and Seagram building, each of them and many more have created some of the most dynamic, recognizable landmarks and distinctive buildings in and out of America.
