The Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, one of the most relevant and influential in the world, designed the first building in Australia. This building is named after Chau Chak Wing, a Chinese Australian philanthropist, and businessman who donated $20 million for the building's construction purpose. This business school provides learning, teaching, research, and office accommodation. This school has nearly 1,256 students and 326 academic staff. This business school will be open to all students but will have the main focus on postgraduate and executive education.
The design of Dr. Chau Chak Wing Building is based on the concept of a tree-house structure The building was made with approximate 320,000 custom-designed bricks, which is described as the "squashed brown paper bag". The Dr. Chau Chak Wing Building is famous for many reasons. One of them is that as much for what will go on inside as how it looks on the outside. Gehry Partners start its designs from the inside-out. That means that the design of internal spaces must be before the design of the building's exterior can start. UTS selected Gehry as an architect because of his experience in the field of development of creative spaces. This building is noticeably different from any other building in the vicinity and it distinctly generates lots of interest at street level as pedestrians are very closer to photograph, insect and engage with it.
This extremely complex construction is made with five custom-made brick types that were specifically manufactured for this building by Laid and Bowral Bricks. The brickwork is heavily carefully assembled and executed to build an exacting and highly detailed design. This building has stairs that are made with stainless steel in the main lobby. That is constructed by Urban Art Projects. Those stairs are one of the sculptural forms within the building. The eastern corner of the building connects with The Goods Line that is a pedestrianized spine along a former railway line that currently under development.
This building will bring together all staff under one roof. That staff is from all five of the School's core business discipline groups like Economics, Accounting, Finance, Marketing, and Management  - inspiring even greater collaboration across disciplines. A building that goes with satisfying basic user requirements, that produces this complexity and richness. That draws people in, either they are viewing it from an academic standpoint or naturally discovering it in the street, is a good building.

In 1997, When the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao was opened to the public, it was immediately famous as one of the world's most fabulous buildings in the style of Deconstructivism. Even the building inspired other structures of similar design across the world. The museum was constructed on time and budget, which is very rare for the architecture of this unique type.
Guggenheim Museum Bilbao was constructed with interconnection shapes glass, limestone, and titanium. The museum used 33,000 pieces of titanium that were only half a millimeter thick, each piece with a unique form suited to its position. As these pieces are so thin, a perfect fit to the curves is mandatory. The glass has a special analysis to let in the sun's light, but not its heat.
The museum was popular for its distinctive titanium curves and soaring glass atrium. The resulting architecture is expressionistic and sculptural, with lots of spaces unlike any others for the presentation of art. The three levels of the building are glass elevators. The museum is placed in the ancient industrial heart of the city. The museum has lots of space for the exhibition. The 11,000 m2 of exhibition space is scattered over 19 galleries. Out of them, 10 galleries follow a classic orthogonal plan that can be easily identified from the outside by their stone finishes. The remaining 9 galleries, which are irregularly shaped and also can be easily identified from the exterior by their swirling organic forms and titanium cladding.
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is a pinnacle in Gehry's great architectural career as well as in the field of museum design.

They help in creating a dust-free atmosphere and in compressing the summer heat. The design of the Parliament Library Building follows "Beaux-Arts", which designed upon the principle of French neoclassicism and used modern materials, such as glass and iron. The building is strictly restricted to the dais level of the Parliament House.

Several domes of various sizes and types make up the roof and benefit from Rewal's experiences in earlier buildings. The central dome is made of glass that was specially developed for this building. Raj Rewal content on using glass to let in light. This specially developed glass is claimed to be still more capable of resisting heat transfer. The outer walls of the library are clad in the same being sandstone and red as that was used in the Parliament building. This local stone has been broadly used in northern and northwestern India through the centuries and thus expresses regionalism. The design of the Parliament Library Building is encouraged by pre-colonial Indian architecture like the magnificent Taj Mahal, which has a square base and symmetrical composition.
Rewal uses lots of handcrafted stone grills or jalis. In this pre-colonial Indian architecture, jalis were used not only for decoration but to separate the inside from the outside, to broadcast the harsh sunlight, and to audibly and visually connect two spaces while physically divide them. Those jalis are integrated artfully to create a typically Indian look.
The Parliament Library Building has a hi-tech network and facilities for multimedia, microfilm, and satellite links. Also, it has houses for the reading room for members of parliament (MPs), committee room, the research area and archival storage, and a banquet hall. Rewal has created this contemporary Indian architecture that uses inventive technology to express both regionalism and modernity with connections to the physical ambiance and venerable history.

Kahn's architecture is defined by the use of bare red bricks, vast corridors outside the classrooms, the extensive use of geometric shapes in academic blocks and hostels. He integrated local materials (concrete and brick) to construct this project. He skillfully united Indian traditional and modern architecture and the vernacular architecture of this project. Every year, a lot of architecture students and tourists often visit IIM Ahmedabad for its phenomenal architectural impact.


The most extraordinary features of the plan are the various arches and square brick structures with circles carved out in the facade. This extensive building has a library, residential buildings, and teaching facilities. The large facade exterior system and light wells securing the interior from India's harsh desert climate. Every though the porous, geometric facade arts as filters for proper ventilation and sunlight, the porosity granted for the creation of new areas of gathering for the students and faculty to come together.
The design of IIM Ahmedabad was more than just dynamic spatial planning of the classrooms which is the first phase of learning for the students and the center of academic thought. That time the main focus was to build a new, modern school that integrated a more western-style of teaching for India's best and brightest. So that every student can participate in class discussions and debates in comparison to the traditional style where students can participate in class discussions and debates in comparison to the traditional style where students can have to sit in lectures throughout the day. He had died in 1974 in New York City before the project was completed.
So, Unfortunately Kahn was unable to see the final design in which he was designed. However, there is no doubt whether or not his design had completely changed how modern architecture establishes itself in one's culture.
