The design of buildings, when done correctly by a drafting company, captivates, uplifts and entrances. It has an almost indescribable quality that epitomizes design innovation, place connection and, most importantly, creativity.

Innovation that will make architecture integral to revitalizing cultures and inspiring cities.

However, modern architectural structures are not solely intended to be appreciated at a distance. “It is not about building iconic structures, but about shaping public spaces” says Steve Holl, referencing the eight tower retail/office/residential complex his company designed in China. “You can not comprehend it unless you are around, under or over it”. Another feature of the Linked Hybrid is that it is “ultragreen”, according to Holl. Underneath the buildings are 655 geothermal wells, which provide cooling and heating. Similar to the leading architects of his era, Holl links environmental and social concerns to his aesthetic ambitions.

Equally as engaging is the Harpa Conference Center and Concert Hall in Reykjavík. This is a joint venture between artist Olafur Eliasson and the architecture companies Batteríið and Henning Larsen. They designed a structure that is asymmetrical and adorned with LED powered steel and glass ‘bricks’. On an evening, these fixtures entertain Icelanders with an enchanting light show. It is the type of innovation that will make architecture integral to revitalizing cultures and inspiring cities.

Modern architecture has progressed considerably from needing stately walls and Corinthian columns to proclaim its significance.

Officials in the Spanish city of Seville did not have a clear idea in their heads, when they solicited proposals to enhance the city’s market square. Jürgen Mayer was the designer of the winning project, called the Metropol Parasol. This is a dreamy latticework canopy that is almost 500 feet wide and features overlooks, meeting places and restaurants. “This used for all types of things, from gay pride occasions to religious marches during Holy periods” says Mayer. “Now, it is the city’s central hub”. This proves that modern architecture has progressed considerably from needing stately walls and Corinthian columns to proclaim its significance.
