the year in architecture

the beijing national stadium by herzog & de meuronthe new yorker architecture critic paul goldberger has posted his most recent article which lists his favourite buildings of the past year. the list features many of the year’s high profile new structures and a few not so well-known. designboom covered all but one of goldberger’s favourites, that exception being the cathedral of christ the light in oakland, california by skidmore, owings and merril. also on the list were two restorations, the arts building at yale university and a synagogue in new york. the other odd man out was olufar elliasson’s waterfall project in new york. the new york times critic nicolai ouroussoff also has a run down of the year in architecture with a new york city focus. here is the complete set of links for all of this year’s top buildings on designboom, including a few bonus links.
