  1. Jørn Utzon: Jørn Utzon is perhaps best known for his iconic design of the Sydney Opera House, but his contributions to the world of architecture extend far beyond this one project. Utzon’s work often incorporated elements of nature and natural light, and his use of unconventional materials set him apart from other architects of his time. Despite his immense talent, Utzon died with a relatively modest net worth of $500,000.

2. Louis Kahn: Louis Kahn is another architect whose contributions to the field have often been overlooked during his lifetime. Kahn’s work was characterized by the use of light and shadow, and his designs often included complex geometric shapes. Despite his innovative designs, Khan struggled financially for most of his career, and he died with a net worth of  $200,000.

3. Eileen Gray: Eileen Gray was a pioneer in the world of modern architecture and her designs were characterized by  simplicity and functionality. Her Gray’s most famous work is probably her E-1027 house in the South of France, which she designed with her partner Jean Badovic. Despite her contributions to the field, Gray remained largely unrecognized during her lifetime and she passed away leaving her with a net worth of around $10 million.

4. Kenzo Tange: Kenzo Tange is a Japanese architect who is best known for bringing modern architecture to Japan.

Some architects have achieved enormous wealth and worldwide recognition, while others remain relatively unknown despite their vast talent and contributions to the field. Whether due to lifelong financial hardships or simply a lack of public recognition, the architects listed above believe that success in architecture is not necessarily dollars or awards, but the enduring impact of their designs. It reminds us that we are measured by our impact.
