I would try Rogers and Piano's Center George Pombidou. it's a building designed to show its own, hidden otherwise, infrastructure (structural system,communications such as escalators etc.). i think it's the first of this kind of buildings.
another good example is Bernar Tchumi's Park de la Vilette.. huge place..weird structures..deconstruction!
and last.. Perrault's Library by the river... it is one that looks like 4 open books.. see it like someone had designed a rectangular prism and then subtracted a great part (except its for corners that define the volume) and replaced it with nature
