Best cities for innovative architecture

  • 1. Barcelona

    The whimsical works of Gaudi can be seen in this Spanish city.

  • 2. Paris
    Paris, Ile-de-France

    Many of this city's spectacular monuments are imitated throughout the world, whether it's Notre Dame, Napoleon's Tomb, the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, or the Louvre. The parks' neat topiary is just as interesting, as are apartment and houses throughout the City.

  • 3. London
    London, England

    Experience the pomp and majesty of royal Britain, with Buckingham Palace, the National Gallery, the Tower of London, Big Ben, Parliament, St. Paul's Cathedral, etc.

  • 4. New York City
    New York City, New York

    This city truly epitomizes how skyscrapers are truly the celestial strivings of man.

  • 5. Seattle
    Seattle, Washington

    The Seattle Library and the Sound Experience Museum really place this city on the architectural map.

  • 6. Los Angeles
    Los Angeles, California

    Richard Neutra and RM Schindler's clean, sparse lines defined LA modernism, but newer works are just as interesting. Check out the Walt Disney Concert Hall or the Getty Museum.

  • 7. The Netherlands
    The Netherlands, Europe

    Pushing the boundaries of avant-garde design, the Netherlands has many famous architects and buildings.

  • 8. Shanghai
    Shanghai Region, China

    Shanghai brings together old and new as this city becomes an architectural capital.
