 Some structures will take your breath away. Our friends at ArchDaily set out to determine the best buildings from around the world that blend beauty, intelligence, creativity, and service to the community.

After receiving nominations from more than 3,500 projects featured on its site in the past year, the publication asked readers to vote for their favorites among 14 categories. Sixty thousand people voted.

From the teeny-tiny town hall in Newbern, Alabama, to the futuristic McDonald’s halfway around the world in Georgia, here are some of the winners of ArchDaily’s Building of the Year Awards.
