Every decade brings with it new buildings that stir the imagination and push the limits of what was sought possible in terms of design. In the slideshow below we take a look at 10 of the best buildings to be constructed (if not entirely finished) over the course of the last decade. Vote for your favorite, and let us know in the comments what other architectural visions deserve a place on the list.

Beijing National Stadium, Beijing (2008)
 
The "bird's nest" was the architectural highlight of the 2008 Olympics. The lines on the outside are based upon traditional Chinese ceramic patterns. However, despite costing over $420 million, the building has been largely redundant since 2008. Designed by Herzog and de Meuron, Ai Weiwei.
