Skidmore, Owings and Merrill architectural firm has an impressive website. Their homepage was laid out well and organized logically. I was also impressed with their many locations over seas and their vast library of buildings they have designed. The buildings each offer something completely different as some focus on sustainability like the UNC Genome Science Lab, or the graphics on the Jianianhua Center, or the unique shape of the highrise Infinity Tower. It was incredibly easy to navigate the projects page as they organized them by several differents categories depending on which suits your needs. I also liked that they offer photo galleries of each project that really give you a feel for each project. I particularly enjoyed the partners page under people. If you put your mouse over one of the figures they change positions and tell you who they are with a speech bubble. You should definitely check out the guy 3rd from the left on the bottom row, he was especially creative.
