anotace Since building became a representation of religion, power, culture, or technology, a phenomenon of iconic architecture started. How could these buildings be defined? When did the movement begin? What main features could be named? Each historical stage formed icons: whether ancient times religious or today commercial. For the first post-modernism iconic building, designed by Le Corbusier in the 1950s, the chapel of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp (France) is admitted. The later iconic building, which started a trend of contemporary iconicity in architecture, is the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum, opened in 1997, and created by architect-celebrity Frank O. Gehry. According to researches, the iconic building trend illustrated a strategy of a planned attraction by the implement of an impressive and symbolic form, being designed by a famous architect.
