Design aficionados may be able to rattle off a list of the world's most celebrated architects, but for everyone else, there's "The ABC of Architects" — a short animation that you may want to watch before your next dinner party. Created by Vimeo user fedelpeye, the video runs through famous architects in alphabetical order, displaying their name and nationality alongside a graphic rendering of their most renowned buildings. It's a clean and catchy primer, though the artists acknowledge that they had some difficulty narrowing down their list to just 26 names.
