Shaping a modern world
Being the best in your field
Whether they’ve made the first desirable electric car, an operating system with 99% customer satisfaction, the best offices, breathtaking public and private spaces or museum-like houses, these engineers are the best in their field.
Who are they?
Elon Musk (1971) is an American engineer, visionary and multibillionaire. He is best known as the CEO of Tesla Motors. He has also (co-)founded many influential tech companies, such as Tesla, SpaceX, Neuralink, PayPal, SolarCity, OpenAI, and The Boring Company. Other ambitious projects involve making a Hyperoop, colonising Mars, reducing global warming, and building supersonic electric aircraft.
Craig Federighi (1969) is Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. Federighi oversees the development of iOS, macOS, and Siri and is known for his attention to the User Interface. He had a leading role in the design of Apple’s software in the past decade, making him one of the most influential software engineers.
This website is designed using the principles of the UI guides of his team.
Norman Foster (1935) is a British architect whose company, Foster + Partners, is known for its Structural Expressionism and office buildings, such as Apple Park. Many of his buildings maintain a Neo-Futuristic design, so does this website.
His portfolio includes the Millau Viaduct in Southern France, the restored Reichstag building in Berlin, the ‘Gherkin’ in London, and the Bow skyscraper in Calgary, which I all happened to have visited.
Zaha Hadid (1950-2016) was a Iraqi-British architect and Industrial Design Engineer who is considered to be the most important female architect of the past two decades.
Her projects include the Heydar Aliyev Center in Azerbaijan, the Wangjing SOHO and Galaxy SOHO in Beijing, and the remodelled campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business. Many of these buildings can be labeled as Neo-Futuristic.
