12 Best Buildings of 2005

This just in:

The 12 Best Buildings of 2005

These are actually arranged by category, including Best Hospital, Best Residence, Best Expansion, Best Art Gallery, etc.

Below is a pic of the Shaw Center for the Arts, which is the best Multi-Purpose Arts Building. It is located in Baton Rouge, LA.

What really caught my eye with this building was the way that it goes above and over the neighboring building, a hotel! This allows it an excellent view of the river. Other notable features include a large slot cut right into the buidling, and the banded green glass in the facade.

Just imagine what the University of Maryland could have ended up with (yes, this building is part of LSU). Check out some of the other buildings mentioned!
