Architects that influence your thinking ?

We admire Architects for many different reasons, it would be interesting for students or whoever to post in a number of influential architects, giving a brief description why.

Rem Koolhaas - His devotion to injecting new ideas into the urban fabric and a profound examination rejection of the art in architecture.

Itsuko Hasegawa - Beautifully tectonic forms that reach toward the future but are rooted in the traditions of the past.

Odile Decq & Benoit Cornette - Sacred geomentry and beautiful aesthetic formalism manifest with a high-tech vocabulary.

Elizabeth PLatter Zyberk- a grasp for what's lacking in modern urban design. A true understanding of what works in classic design and why the past somethimes is better.

Neil M. Denari - Architecture packaged for a consumer driven culture. A reinvention of the personification of function in form.

Greg Lynn - How are we going to design and build in a digital culture? An incredible look in the digital made real.

dECOI - french attitude

Macos Novak - another great computer designer

Kaplan and Kruger a&m - architecture & masochism

Lebbeus Woods that guy can draw brilliantly

Morphosis - fantastic (needs no real overview)

Not forgetting about some classics like:
Le Corbusier- years ahead, at least in theory.
or even
Mies- a grasp for the unique ideas of suburban america before there was suburban america, and he wasn't even american...

enough said - your turn....:-)
