The towers designer, Gustave Eiffel, was an engineer. He created the tower for the World’s Fair in 1889. It was not a big hit at first, then of course, you know the rest.

Built for the 1962 World’s Fair the Space Needle was a design compromise. Then again, contrary to popular understanding, most designs are. For more super cool space ship like buildings see the Googie movements champion, John Lautner.

The Chrysler building is an icon. It was designed by William Van Alen in the Art Deco style. It’s the tallest brick building in the world (steel inside). It’s the epitome of great architecture, “You know it when you see it.”

graceisheree said: I've seen your video on youtube about "so you want to be an architect". It is really a great video, i'm a graduating highschool student, and I really want to be an architect since i was on my middleschool.. But i'm not that quite good in math. What specific subject does an architecture student take??

Watch my ‘Could you be an architect’ video series. Best, Doug
