Vanity Fair magazine surveyed big-name architects, teachers, and critics to rank the most significant structures of the past 30 years. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, came out on top, by a wide margin. The list also includes the Bird's Nest Stadium, Beijing, by Herzog & de Meuron, the Seattle Central Library (and two other buildings) by Rem Koolhaas, and Maya Lin's Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Check out the slide show.I'm not in love with all of the buildings here, but they make an impressive collection, and it's useful to know what leaders in the field consider the most important contributions of architecture's current generation. --B.D.S.
