Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs and Nathalie de Vries
MVRDV


MVRDV--whose name is an acronym for the founding members--made its name with wacky ideas, like a high-rise pig farm. But they've since matured into an astonishingly elegant style.

Rem Koolhaas
OMA


You can't talk about contemporary avant-garde architecture without mentioning Koolhaas and his Office for Metropolitan Architecture, which introduced a rigor--and weirdness--to design; they've always been at the forefront of pondering what design can be, and how it fits in modern society.

Minsuk Cho
MASS Studies


MASS Studies is South Korea's own locally produced, internationally recognized success story. Working at a variety of scales--from city plans to galleries and boutiques--they've distinguished themselves with a refinement that's rare in go-go Asian architecture.


2#

Yansong Ma
MAD architects


Chinese architecture has often lived in the shadow of the west--copying its ideas, importing its talent. MAD is changing that, and representing the avant-garde of a new generation of homegrown Chinese talent


1#

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

DeAndre "Soulja Boy Tell'em" Way
rapper/producer

The 18-year-old Web wunderkind took a crazy song and dance, and propelled it via YouTube and MySpace fame into an Interscope recording contract and platinum record sales. And to prove he was no one-hit wonder, he returned with a chart topping sophomore set. Now he's branched out into a live-action animation series and an endorsement deal with Yums footwear and fashions. Next up: a video game for Xbox 360, and acting.

JJ Abrams
Writer of lost and producer of star trek

"It's intriguing to play with exactly when you learn elements in a story," says the Emmy-winning writer-director-producer, referring to Lost, his biggest hit on the small screen.

Crow

Crows living in urban areas are known to gather nuts from trees and then place them in the street for passing cars to crack open the shells. Then, after waiting patiently for the light to change, they return to the street to retrieve their nutty snack - an impressive example of animal innovation.


4#

Elephant

Elephants have been known to clean their food and use tools in various ways in the wild, and they can also follow human commands in captivity. Elephants are also extremely caring and empathetic to other members of their group and to other species, which is considered a highly advanced form of intelligence.
3#

Orangutan

They have a strong culture and system of communication, and many have been observed to use tools in the wild. Orangutans live in widely scattered communities and form strong social bonds, which may be the key to their advanced cognitive skills. Females remain with their young for many years, teaching them all they need to survive in the forest.
2#

Dolphin

Dolphins are extremely social animals. Schools of dolphins can be observed in the world's oceans surfing, racing, leaping, spinning, whistling and otherwise enjoying themselves. They also have a sophisticated "language," though humans have only begun to unravel it. Dolphins use tools in their natural environment and can learn an impressive array of behavioral commands by human trainers.

Chimpanzee

They can make and use tools, hunt collectively, and are capable of advanced problem-solving. They are also able to learn sign language to communicate with humans and can remember the name sign for individuals they have not seen for several years. But perhaps the most amazing feature of the chimpanzee is its ability to use symbols for objects and combine the symbols in a sequence to convey a complex idea.
