27 of the Best Google Doodles Celebrating Architects and Architecture

Since 1998, Google has been manipulating their iconic logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries and the lives of famous artists, pioneers and scientists, creating what they call Google Doodles. Since the very first doodle (used to indicate founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin’s attendance at Burning Man that year), Google has produced over 2000 fun, colorful drawings to inform their users about the important milestones that fell on that date.

Of these doodles, numerous have featured the works or lives of some of history’s most prominent architects. Check out a sampling of some of our favorites, after the break!
