Well, time will tell who is timeless. I'll put my money on Mies, along with Wright, Corb, and Kahn (at their best--which is not always).Utzon? No. I don't think that timelessness of a landmark as an icon, like the Sydney Opera House or the Tower Bridge, is to be equated with timlessness as architecture, like the Petit Trianon or the Farnsworth House. Neither the Tower Bridge nor the Sydney Opera House are in the same league architecturally. The Seagram Building in Manhattan is far more timeless as architecture than the World Trade Center would have been. That the one was more iconic as a symbol does not make it more valued as architecture.
