Am I the only one who's curious as to why they are building European structures in China?

Aside from that, lovely buildings.

It would be great if they build neighborhoods with buildings of 5-7 stories but not with european style, but with chinese!!!

Imagine a chinese Paris! It would be great, but not copying the architecture, but the town planning!

the buildings might be nice but because of its random placement in the a country with almost no architectural connection with europe, it is quite fake and un matching, it just doesnt match china and its landscape or the people or the culture and cities

i think using traditional chinese influenced designs is better than fully copying european and more western designs

It's called historicism or revival style. French and Italian styles in particular were quite common in most of Europe in the 19th and early 20th century, with (almost) no connection to France and Italy. In fact, a lot of architectural styles (Tuscan Romanesque, Renaissance, Baroque, Futurism) started in Italy and spread out quickly throughout the rest of Europe.

There are large numbers of Victorian neighborhoods in North America, and often, those quarters are among the most desired. The same is true for most German cities, where on average, residential buildings built between 1850 and 1910 generate higher rents than newer buildings from 1910-1980ish. A large share of the population seems prefers human-scale buildings with details, ornaments and diverse shapes - However, contemporary designs ignore those sentiments and produce simple, dismissive buildings that seem to evoke speed rather than a neighborhood stroll.

The jury is still out on whether "modern" architecture (i.e. styles based on designs of the 1920s) will fail completely or improve over the next decades, but I for one welcome historicist designs, buildings, that people actually want to look at and live in instead of those pityful boxes we seem to love so much in Europe and North America. Maybe the Chinese will not make the same mistakes that we did (they surely did when it comes to sprawl and inner city freeways) and shift towards a detailed, rich and honest architecture. And right now, they seem to prefer European designs rather than their own, much as Germany did for a decade in the 1850s when they started building in middle eastern styles.

you can look the China Dragon Carving on the photos.
It mix China and European style.Usually we will do some China special carving on the stone wall facade.

Really amazing.

People discuss so much about tasting... if it looks beautiful, why not build it anywhere?

Apart from that, European influence in China is not only in architecture.

But, honestly, if free minds start to mix the best of Chinese and European architecture I will really like to see the outcome.

To finish, I think that some vegetation and more colors, and even the use of marble in some parts would remove the little kitsch vestige still visible.

I´m posting again because I am totally favourable to building and rebuilding in an European style. Europeans may not like it, but it is beautiful and, although I am of Italian descent, I don´t live in a country where you can see a French palace just around the corner

There are loads of what we call neo-neoclassical buildings here in São Paulo, that look a little kitsch too.

The problem is that the lack of some details and the "brand new look" of the buildings make them look like copies. May seem strange, but with some slime, pollution and other imperfections they may come to look more attractive.

Perhaps it is better (to our eyes, not necessarily to Gong Rong´s clients) to have some very detailed features of European architecture (door and window frames, for example), on simpler overall structures to make them look more realistic and original.
