Today is the tenth letter in our A-Zdvent calendar and features John Pawson. His British firm remodelled this old church in Augsburg, Germany earlier this year (pictured) and yesterday announced he'll be the latest designer of a holiday home for Alain de Botton's Living Architecture project.
Letter I stands for Japanese architect Arata Isozaki in the ninth window from our A-Zdvent calendar of architects. Isozaki's most famous projects include the Museum of Modern Art in Gunma, but he more recently completed an inflatable mobile concert hall in collaboration with artist Anish Kapoor and the Qatar National Convention Centre, where tree-like columns support an overhanging roof (pictured).
We've recently featured a house with a fritted glass facade and an energy efficient house in a glazed box located in the Netherlands. From the iconic Piet Blom cube houses to the traditional Dutch townhouse, here is a selection of Dutch homes from the pages of Dezeen. See our new Dutch houses Pinterest board »
Following a preview of the nearly completed Pérez Art Museum in Miami this week, our eighth A-Zdvent calendar window features Swiss architecture duo Herzog & de Meuron. Here's a picture of their Vitrahaus showroom shaped like a pile of houses.
G is for Frank Gehry in our seventh A-Zdvent calendar window. The American architect's Guggenheim Museum in the Spanish city of Bilbao (pictured) famously sparked a trend for cities commissioning iconic buildings as catalysts for regeneration, while other high-profile projects include his Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the upcoming new headquarters for Facebook.
Behind our sixth A-Zdvent calendar window is British architect Norman Foster. One of his most famous buildings is the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank Headquarters completed in 1986 (pictured) and his firm Foster + Partners this week revealed its collaboration with designer Thomas Heatherwick on a finance centre that is currently under construction in Shanghai.
British architect David Chipperfield is the fourth in our A-Zdvent calendar of architects. He was last year's director of the Venice Biennale and is best known for designing museums and galleries, inlcuding the Hepworth Wakefield in the UK (pictured).
In the third of our A-Zdvent calendar of architects, C is for Santiago Calatrava, whose projects include the Liège-Guillemins station in Belgium (pictured) and the Fourth Bridge on the Grand Canal in Venice.
In the second of our A-Zdvent calendar of architects, B is for Bjarke Ingels whose projects include the House 8 project (pictured), a power plant that doubles up as a ski slope and the Superkilen park in Copenhagen.
Following the completion of Dutch studio OMA's De Rotterdam building and our exclusive interviews with Rem Koolhaas, here is a selection of OMA projects that we have featured on Dezeen including a glazed cube for a Tokyo store, a proposed bridge with a pedestrian boulevard in France and the CCTV building in China.
