Stunning buildings of star architects in Eastern Europe | TOP 5

Star architects are known for their distinctive, immediately identifiable style and monumental buildings. These buildings go beyond modernity, reflect much more on their surroundings and the function of the building than the high average, and last but not least, adorn cities as spatial installations and works of art. Let’s see what iconic buildings designed by star architects can be found in Eastern Europe!

DC Towers | Vienna

The Viennese skyscraper was designed by French architect Dominique Perrault. Only one of the two planned towers was handed over, but with its 250 meters, it is the tallest building in Vienna. If its pair is completed, they will rise as a gigantic monolithic pair in the modern Donau City district on the left bank of the Danube.

Dancing house | Prague

The iconic and now popular deconstructive building, called Dancing house , can be connected to Vlado Milunić of Croatian-Czech descent and Frank Gehry of Canada-America. The then divisible building is today one of the most famous sights and symbols of the Czech Republic.

Library and Learning Centre | Vienna

Zaha Hadid certainly does not have to be introduced to a lot, so she couldn’t be left out of our list either, as the star architect also left a significant mark on her work in Vienna. The central campus of the Vienna University of Economics is built on strong contrasts, the monumental building is made up of large glazed surfaces.

ZLOTA 44 | Warsaw

Daniel Libeskind (Studio Libeskind) had a great career and returned to his homeland, Poland, when he dreamed of ZLOT44. The residential building towers in the center of Warsaw, where it offers its residents an unparalleled, world-class experience. The glass and aluminum curtain walls have self-cleaning coverings and windows reaching up to the ceiling. The windows are arranged in an irregular pattern, so they brighten the surface of the building by playing with light and shadow.

House of Hungarian Music | Budapest

Designed by star architect Sou Fujimoto, the House of Hungarian Music perfectly represents modern architecture: the building is an extravagant but direct source of inspiration from nature and, of course, the lifeblood of the house, music. The distinctive roof was inspired by sound waves, and its pitted structure allows light to flood the building in the most natural way.
