Rem Koolhaas
OMA

Yansong Ma
MAD architects

Will Alsop
ALSOP Architects


Few architects have been so dedicated to such an unusual design aesthetic as maximalist Will Alsop. And fewer still have been as successful at building their designs. His nearly completed "Chips" building was inspired by piled french fries; his extension for the Ontario College of Art and Design is one of the strangest, most exciting buildings in recent memory
