I saw this in a magazine. It is a list of Buildings Andrew LW Raimist, AIA, likes in St Louis and the area. His blog is awesome.



You will notice Frank Lloyd Wright and Walter Burley Griffin mentioned.

I have been a fan of Mr Raimist since discovering his blog http://remiss63.blogspot.com/ . He has devoted quite a lot of time to the work of local architect Harris Armstrong.

Louis Sullivan's Wainwright Building with the adjacent wing designed by Mitchell Giurgola is absolutely tremendous. Great work by two great architects. The Wainwright Building is Louis Sullivan at his best. The Mitchell Giurgola wing/addition is understated, incredibly appropriate and beautiful. I cannot imagine Frank Gehry or one of today's luminaires, except for Renzo Piano, doing such a wonderful addition.
