we first featured zero per zero’s subway maps back in 2007 when ji hwan kim and jin so

presented them at seoul design week. since then the korean designers have created

this heart-shaped diagram of the new york subway system, referencing milton glaser’s

iconic ‘I heart new york’ logo.

the beijing national stadium by herzog & de meuron

the 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.
