Every starchitect has their little quirks. You know: Zaha Hadid's latticework bulges and pointy bits, Frank Gehry's twisty funhouse warping, Richard Rogers' inside-out schtick - it's hard to get to the top of the architectural pile unless you've got a feature, a little visual tic, a distinctive style that makes a particular building unmistakably you.

The Editor's Note

Does form follow function? Or is function a slave to form? The architects and designers of the past 100 years have laid down battle lines over these questions and their war of words rumbles on.

Something fishy

World-renowned architect Frank Gehry may be responsible for creating landmarks such as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, in the US, and the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, but he is not above designing something much smaller.
