The palace of Wilanow, situated in a rolling green park in a southern suburb of Warsaw and now a museum, has been dubbed "the Polish Versailles". It was built in the late 17th century by Poland's King Jan III Sobieski. A campaign by heirs of an old Polish noble family to recover a palace seized by the communists has exposed Poland's failure to resolve the restitution of property to former owners after two decades of democracy.

tall building known as the MEC in downtown Rio was finished in 1945 and
became "the prince of modern architecture," according to el-Dahdah, and
drew the attention of the international press. Costa was born to
Brazilian parents in France and spent most of his childhood in Europe
before returning to study architecture in Rio de Janeiro. As he
