favourite architects besides Michelangelo?Maurice Fatio(1899-1947 ?)

I just wondered if there could be a favourite architects forum section on skyscraperpage.com?
I guess not all architects build skyscrapers ,or what would be classed as a skyscraper nowadays,say compared to like say 4,000 years ago at Palenque built by the Mayans;the buildings are not particularly tall but they are constructed on a big hill and presented some quite astonishing structural difficulties ,i would think for the architects?
To go-off on a slight -tangent i am just getting interested in the architecture of Maurice Fatio(Palm Beach darling circa 1920's-40's) but i can't find-out all that much about him apart from the fact he was Suisse and died young in his forties.His buildings are !estupendos! 'though: clean lines,symetrical,elegant detail in mouldings,doorways,staircases ,dreamy!
