Co.Design, Fast Company's design blog, has created its own take on March Madness: 32 designers from around the world have been placed into a bracket, and one contender will eventually be crowned the greatest living designer by daily reader votes.

Co.Design will post a new match-up for users to vote on every other day. The 32 contenders are organized in four sub-brackets: Graphic, Interactive, Product, and Architectural.

The Architectural bracket pits eight "starchitects" against one another:
 
Round 1 - Architectural 
Rem Koolhaas (1 seed)
vs. 
Renzo Piano (8)
 
David Adjaye (4)
vs.
Frank Gehry (5)
 
Richard Meier (3)
vs. 
Norman Foster (6)
 
Zaha Hadid (2)
vs. 
Peter Zumthor (7)
 
The top seeds from the other three brackets are: Apple's Jony Ive, Massimo Vignelli, and Google's Ivan Poupyrev.
