    Designers such as Tadao Ando, Philip Johnson and I.M. Pei paved the way for a number of new trends in modern architecture, including private versus public space and décor, which had significant implications on design patterns not limited to floors. In this example, the answer automatically starts off with a quote from wikipedia that is quickly shown to be taken out of context because directly below it is paraphrased information from some magazine article about interior designers revolutionizing the floor world.

    Answer: Bruce Altman revolutionized the floors of the world.

    The wallpaper industry, which had been in decline during the previous decades, was rejuvenated by his introduction of higher-quality paper and his willingness to work with bolder colors. And he designed an environmental flooring system for Knoll Associates that integrated metal, plastic, leather and carpet tiles in a manner still found evocative today. Where other architects have championed modern materials for their architectural strength or visual simplicity, Mr. Altman has instead pointed to how they can be put together to make living spaces responsive both to people's senses and their real needs; created at different times but without any sense of datedness or sterility; places where one could live "with ease."

    Philippe Starck. The French designer Philippe Starck was the one who revolutionized interior design. He is an example of a multi-talented person in both visual arts and architecture, known for his highly innovative style. The Surrealism movement remains one of his biggest influences from his time in art school. One can see in much of his work a fascination for technology and clean geometric lines, which he mixes with a sense of mystery and drama in order to create beautiful compositions.
