The Foro Buonaparte was a big square planned in Milan during the napoleonic era.

The Sforza castle should have been restored in neoclassical style, and surrounded by a circular mega-building used for the state administration (ministeries, public buldings, and so on).

The Reichstag building ("Reichstagsgebäude") in Berlin by Paul Wallot:


http://www.tu-darmstadt.de/media/ill...9/4_Wallot.jpg


The building was actually built but not in the way it was originally intended, too many cooks spoiled the broth.

Yes, Wallots original dome would have been awsome, so i do like the Tympanon more than his central pavillon

Acropolis Palace by Karl Friedrich Schinkel ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Friedrich_Schinkel )

Designed by the German architect in 1830, however finally not done because Schinkel thought that the King of Greece had more money...

I think this would have looked great if it was built on new, never-before-developed land. I love the shape of the buildings.





Le Corbusier would have made this look great, unlike all the following architects that ripped off and bastardized his ideas.

But at least they should reconstruct the former cupola and the lanterns, to get the proportions right:

Buildings like these can only look great when seen from high above (as in these pictures). From the land level as most people would perceive them they are far cry from even OK. In fact, they are nightmare.
That's a common mistake for Le Corbusier and his followers: they never bothered to look at their projects from an ordinary citizen's everyday point of view. Moreover, they hardly cared people at all.

First project of Moscow Polytechnic Museum by Ippolit Monighetti (Ипполит Антонович Монигетти):


http://historydoc.edu.ru/


http://www.nasledie-rus.ru/podshivka/9916.php

This building was actually built, but only the central part (built 1874-1877) was completed more or less according Monighettis initial design.
Due lack of funds whole project took more than 30 years to be completed in 1907. Monighetti died in 1878, so the building was finished by other architects and engineers. South wing not follow the initial project completely, but at least it made in the same neo-russian style and fit in quite well with the central part. Latest addition - north wing, though, was made in fashionable art-nouveau style. Beautifull by itself, it doesn't really fit with the whole building.
Every time I look at this building it makes me almost ill - how the both beautifull parts desperately trying to become a whole...

I guess that it would have fallen in disrepair and probably look like a random commie block
