    This year, Forbes.com took on the task of identifying ten architects who are most influencing the American landscape.

    Major commissions are the cornerstone of an architect's resume. A signature landmark building can forever define the architect's style, and winning a top-dollar contract can turn a budding talent into a renowned one. I.M. Pei's work on the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. gained him a lasting reputation for his now-trademark use of triangles and pyramids made of marble and glass. The building was recently honored with the AIA's Twenty-Five Year Award for architecture of enduring significance and is proclaimed to be as great an example of 20th-century art as the artwork inside its walls. Likewise, Santiago Calatrava, who has vast experience in transportation projects (he has designed more than 50 bridges and public buildings), became a celebrated figure in New York City when he won the commission for the World Trade Center Transportation Hub.

    Forbes.com factored in far more than eminent buildings, however. We talked to industry experts and insiders to help determine the architects whose ideas and structures are shaping the field today.

    Our final list showcases a diverse assortment of architectural talent. Some will be names you've heard of, such as Gehry and Richard Meier. Gehry's recent work on the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Pritzker Pavilion has won resounding approval from architecture critics and the citizens of Los Angeles and Chicago. Meier's newly designed residential towers, such as 165 Charles St. in New York City, use his signature glass and cube style, and people are jumping at the chance to live in them despite their hefty price tags.

    Others on our list will be names that only architecture buffs know. Zaha Hadid of London is the first female Pritzker Prize winner but is just now asserting her influence on this side of the pond with works such as the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati. (Though not every architect on the list is based in the U.S., all have done significant work here.) The museum uses a futuristic-looking combination of concrete and glass to link the city street with the galleries inside. Thom Mayne, an American with a unique and rebellious style that incorporates unexpected angles, is gaining prominence and impressive commissions after 30 years in the business.

    There will also be some surprises. You may have never heard the names Greg Lynn or Rick Harlan Schneider, but both are helping to define the future of architecture. Lynn's use of technology and nontraditional forms is transforming the way his firm designs, and Schneider aims to make the entire field more eco-friendly.

    There are brilliant architects-- Cesar Pelli, Robert A.M. Stern and Rem Koolhaus all come to mind--who did not make the list for one reason or another. We still greatly respect their work, of course.
