Hassan II mosque

Location : Casablanca, Morocco
Completed : 1993
Capacity : 105,000 (25,000 indoors, additional 80,000 on Mosque's grounds)
Minaret height : 210 m (689 ft)

Almost half of the surface of the mosque lies above sea water of the Atlantic. This was inspired by the verse of the Qur'an that states "the throne of Allah was built on water." Part of the floor is glass and offers a view down at the sea, The mosque has an opening roof of 1,100 tons and 3,400 m2 of surface area.

Six thousand traditional Moroccan artisans worked for five years to create the abundant and beautiful mosaics, stone and marble floors and columns, sculpted plaster moldings, and carved and painted wood ceilings.

La première image est incroyable!! J'ai vraiment aimé ce regard ancien temple chinois. De nos jours plusieurs acheteurs de maisons préfèrent les anciennes regard maisons. C'est comme le vieux dicton "la mode se répète lui-même" Donc est l'architecturale conceptions. Même Elizabeth Hurley a acheté un vieux château en Inde avec son ex-mari.

Shrine of Our Lady of Lichen, Poland

Probably one of the most controversial modern structures in Poland, EU. Designed by Barbara Bielecka &Co. from Gdansk Institute of Technology, erected 1994, finished 2004 as the biggest catholic church/temple in Poland. Lichen is a small village in Greater Poland, since 1970s it has been developed to one of the biggest catholic sanctuaries in Europe. New Temple in Lichen sets the tone for the whole complex. One of the most impressive things is, that it has been build from donations only.

Tower height: 141,5 m.

Amber Palace in Wloclawek, Poland, EU.

Amber Palace, located in decayed, postmilitary area of this 115 000 pop city in Central Poland (Kujawsko-Pomorskie Voivodeship) is a luxury hotel, but it also serves as a home for foundations donated by its owner and creator, businessman Krzysztof Gradziel. By the mainstream neomodern architectural critique Amber Palace is totally condemned as a faux-style pastiche, but its role in redevelopment of Wloclawek has been hardly no discussed or even recognized.

Construction: 2007-2009.

Can't see anything pastiche about this either.

Of course it lacks patina, but the proportions and details seem apt, from the looks of it. Good job actually.

This type of glass gives it a bit of a kitschy look.

That Dutch town is a perfect example of new traditionalist architecture.

From all the new (kitsch, in my opinion) buildings built in "classic" architectural style in kiev, you've picked an old one currently in renovation ?

No, it is NOT ! Check the old photos of kiev, you smart ass ! The only "upgrade" is the new built extra floor.

I agree Perhaps portico could be better? Interiors do not fit the standard of the external architecture, I think.

General overview from the old sanctuary, which is unfortunatelly a kitschy place.

Architect Barbara Bielecka describes the core of Lichen Shrine as an attempt - grounded on rather simple semiotics and fenomenology - to translate Magnificat Hymnus into architecture.





Many sculptors and painters participated in this project, f.e. Dei Gratia Workshops.

Warsaw Suburban Villas, Poland, EU

This time I would like to show some interesting residences, located in Warsaw Metro Area and created between 1990s and 2000s by rich Polish investors, according to sketches of Andrzej Grzybowski, an amateur-architect and let me say, old-fashion gentlemann of Polish prewar gentry.







Zosin Estate, construction 1999, after demolition of suburban villa from the lat 19th century. Gothic Revival structure, with many different style solutions in interiors, finished around 2006.

Palace on the Water, Konstancin, construction around 2001, finished ca. 2006. Luxury palace located in Konstancin holiday resort, a suburban SPA area of Warsaw established in the 1890s. Modeled after famous Warsaw Palace on the Water in Lazienki Park, a royal residence from the late 18th century.

Palace in Bielawa, a suburban settlement nearby Konstancin and American School (background). One of the most controversial private investments around 2005 in Warsaw Metro Area, because it is located ona a swamp (!), area of Natura 2000 landscape protection park. The biggest residence designed in concept by Andrzej Grzybowski. I do not own any photos of detailed pieces of craftsmanship and decoration of those houses, but they are impressive. Unfortunately, their owners rather do not care about their urban and social context.
