Gallery: 8 Green Valentines for the Architects and Designers We Love!

 

Diane's Design Crush: Jeanne Gang

Last year Jeanne Gang sent the architecture world buzzing - as well as our hearts - with her MacArthur Genius Grant win. Best known for her groundbreaking, curvaceous Aqua Tower in Chicago, Gang has also proved that skyscraper design isn't just for men. With her fair share of landmark buildings either completed or in progress, this architect knows more than a thing or two about beautiful, green and innovative architecture.

Mike‘s Design Crush: Michelle Kaufmann

Ever since Inhabitat first met Michelle Kaufmann back in 2007, we’ve had a huge crush on her groundbreaking brand of sustainable design – she proved that green prefabricated homes can be every bit as beautiful as they are efficient and light on earth. It’s also a love that lasts – she weathered the housing crisis of the past few years and went on to found a brand new design firm, Michelle Kaufmann Studio.

 

Bridgette‘s Design Crush: Marc Kushner

You opened a portal to architecture and our souls through Architizer. We spend hours poring through your site, daydreaming about new designs and the thought of one day visiting each and every site. Our hearts are aflutter with your new design for Wendy at PS1 and we’ll be waiting with bated breath until it goes up this summer. Whether it’s your writing, your designs at HWKN or your passion for architecture, we are smitten.
