The United States tops the list, followed by Italy, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Spain, Greece, China, India, Brazil, Turkey, and Russia in descending order.

Vietnam ranked 16th, surpassing Egypt, Israel, Poland, and Serbia.

The ranking was determined by analyzing and aggregating data from several reputable travel and architecture websites, as reported by Insider Monkey.

The list of sources include reputable publications like Conde Nast Traveler, Travel Channel, The Roam Wild, Suitcase Magazine, and TopTen, among others. These sources have compiled their own rankings and lists of the best cities and countries for architecture lovers.

The countries have been evaluated and ranked based on the frequency with which their cities were mentioned in the aforementioned sources.

According to the evaluation, each country was assigned a score for every instance of its mention in the sources.

According to the website, in case of countries having the same score, the tiebreaker was determined based on which country had a higher rank in the sources.

The United States, which received 14 points and was named the top architectural country globally, featured extensively in the aforementioned sources. Notable landmarks included Miami Beach, the Empire State Building, the Gateway Arch, Denver Art Museum, the Hoover Dam, and the Washington Monument.

According to Insider Monkey, Vietnam’s widespread use of French colonial architecture has earned it two points.

The government buildings in Hanoi showcase the influence of French architecture, such as the Presidential Palace, which was successfully completed in 1906, and the Hanoi Opera House, completing construction in 1911.

According to the website, the 21st century has seen the creation of several impressive architectural marvels, which have added to the existing architectural richness that has been well preserved from earlier times.

The Burj Khalifa, located in Dubai, UAE, stands as a testament to modern architectural excellence. As the tallest building in the world, it showcases the pinnacle of design and engineering. Similarly, the Colosseum, a monumental amphitheater constructed between C.E. 70 and 72 in Rome, Italy, continues to captivate and welcome millions of visitors annually. These iconic structures serve as shining examples of human ingenuity and enduring historical significance.

According to Insider Monkey, a country’s identity is often epitomized by its architecture, which encompasses various elements such as food, culture, environment, and more.

According to a recent publication by Research and Markets, a renowned global market research store, the global architectural services market is predicted to generate revenue of approximately US$376 billion this year. Furthermore, it is projected to experience a steady annual growth rate of 4.8 percent, reaching an impressive value of $523 billion by the year 2030.
