Masterpieces of contemporary architecture

The most original buildings created in the last few decades.

When Friedrich Schelling said, “Architecture is a frozen music,” it’s unlikely he could even think that in the 20th and 21st centuries people would take his statement literally. You can indefinitely speculate about modern architecture, but you still need to admit that in the world there are many buildings that are able to cause a storm of emotions with only one look.

Some of them are created by architects from around the world, and some are made by talented self-taught. These buildings can cause shock, surprise, elicit a smile or even admiration; the main thing is that they don’t leave anyone indifferent. Let’s look at the most amazing buildings from around the world.
