    why repeating so much Zaha..?

    They all look very cool indeed…

    But I thought that the c-space pavilion deserved a place surely ..?

  • Great list. It seems your readers like Zaha a lot.

    3 pavilions by zaha hadid in the top ten pavilions in the world? I’m sorry but there’s far too much favouritism and narrow mindedness here and nowhere near enough research. Off the top of my head, what about Peter Salter?

    In addition, why so many speculative projects? there are so many good ones that have already been built!
