Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

Designed by celebrated architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is admired for its unique architecture as much as it is for its globe-spanning art collection. The modern structure with its rotunda shape beautifully punctuates the concrete jungle of the Big Apple. It houses a comprehensive selection belonging to numerous collectors, curators and art aficionados from across the world. Visit thought-provoking exhibitions of modern and contemporary art as well as a host of cultural events and presentations. Some of the most attractive displays are Pablo Picasso's monochromatic work and Thannhauser's still life.

Cattedrale di San Basilio

La Cattedrale di San Basilio, un insieme affascinante di cupole e tinte vivaci, si staglia all'estremità meridionale della Piazza Rossa, uno dei monumenti architettonici più conosciuti della Russia. Costruita originariamente tra il 1555 e il 1561 per commemorare la vittoria di Ivan IV a Kazan, la cattedrale si presentava in pietra bianca con cupole dorate. I colori e i motivi sono stati aggiunti solo nel XVII secolo. Non si sa molto degli architetti di questo maestoso edificio e per un certo periodo la leggenda narrava che Ivan IV avesse fatto accecare il duo per evitare che replicassero il progetto. Originariamente composta da nove cappelle, qualche anno dopo ne fu aggiunta una decima dove si trova la tomba di San Basilio. Sebbene il nome ufficiale sia Cattedrale dell'Intercessione, il nome più conosciuto questo di gioiello storico deriva dal nome del santo omonimo. Oggi la cattedrale di San Basilio è un monumento che attira ogni anno un gran numero di visitatori e suscita stupore in tutti coloro che l’ammirano.

Dancing House

Arguably the reason for the biggest architectural controversy ever in the city, the post-modern Dancing House portrays a tango couple dancing. Situated on the banks of the Vltava River, the Fred and Ginger Building, built by American Frank Gehry and Vlado Milunic, contains several offices, a street level bar and fancy French restaurant on top. The building is among the most unusual of Prague's varied architectural sights - go and judge its merit for yourself.

Casa Milá - La Pedrera

Antoni Gaudí, l'architetto che ha costruito questa gemma del modernismo catalano, voleva che la facciata rispecchiasse le sue idee romantiche ed anticlassiche sul design. Fu costruito per la famiglia Milà fra il 1906 ed il 1910. Né la famiglia né il pubblico sono stati colpiti: fu soprannominata La Pedrera (cava da pietra) come insulto. Solo più tardi venne rivalutata nel 1984 quando l'UNESCO la dichiarò un patrimonio dell’umanità. Adesso celebrata per tutto il mondo, Casa Milà è un esempio dell’architettura civile di Gaudí; è interessante ed unica ma anche molto pratica.

O si ama o si odia, questo colorato, vivace, ecologico e periferico ex-isolato di scialbe case popolari, è frutto della creatività del artista hippy austriaco Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Si trova nel terzo distretto di Vienna, ed è diventata una attrazione turistica come il Hofburg o il Stephansdom. Dichiarando guerra alla linea retta e promettendo di ripagare un debito alla natura, Hundertwasser ha coperto la facciata in una scacchiera di colori primari, aggiunto cupole a forma di cipolla e rivestimenti di ceramica, e piantato prati e alberi sui tetti. All'interno i 50 appartamenti hanno strani pavimenti ondulati di terracotta. Non perdetevi la vicina Kunsthaus Wien, un altra delle trasformazioni di Hundertwasser, che ospita una collezione permanente di sua arte.
