Bửu Long Temple (2011), Saigon. The architectural style is not Vietnamese but native people.

You propose to stop the war, but You constantly provoked this war. Your words about "new Russians" are empty. Most of shown here my samples are intended for the middle class. I agree that not everything that I have shown is perfect. A number of villages around Moscow were built with the participation of French architects, but You call it "bad taste" and "kitsch". These villages were built not under the order of "new Russians", but on the sale. You are criticizing the Russian samples, but you have not shown almost anything decent from the Western. Most of presented here "your masterpieces" are mediocrity and facelessness. My conclusions are: You are a victim of Russophobic propaganda and You still have a lot to learn. It seems to me that you want to push me away. Tell me straight, and I'm gone.

Russophobic propaganda? Really? From where? All he did was point out that in his opinion many of the Russian (and Eastern European in general) examples posted are terrible, an opinion which I share. The fact that many of the Russian examples posted are terrible does not negate the fact that many examples of traditional architecture in the West are also terrible.

Most of the Dresden stuff works because they maintained correct proportions and didn't try to overdo it.

You always here keep talking about proportions. How do You determine the correct of them, if the building has a complex composition? Most likely on the eye, but can use some stupid computer program. When You call a terrible something and publish this:

you lose trust and respect.

Shame this forum is degenerating into a political argument - that's not what it's about. Please realize that just because someone criticizes a so called traditional new build in Russia (and in most cases quite rightly) doesn't automatically make him anti-Russian for God's sake! The same goes for anywhere else, we are talking architecture here, not politics. In conclusion, anyone who calls the rebuilding of Dresden, kitsch, doesn't know the first thing about the principles of traditional architecture so best keep his opinions to himself rather than show such a lack of knowledge.

I am ashamed for some of participants of forum too. Instead of specific criticism on certain objects they make ridiculous generalization about the mythical "new Russians", about national "tastelessness", reach all the way up to impropriety. In this case, as I managed to find out, they do not differ with deep knowledge in the field of architecture. My fault is only that I have presented quite a lot of samples from Russia, therefore my country and my people became the object of unhealthy xenophobia. Unlike me, these gentlemen have presented very little something decent, so were outside of the zone of criticism. I'm out of courtesy too, not criticized, realizing a General decline in the world in this direction of architecture. As you can see I was not the instigator of conversations about politics, and I now disgusting next to communicate at this forum thread. I congratulate all happy New year, and wish happiness.

You are completely delusional! The moderator had to delete your deeply offending posts. No one else's... End of our conversation.

It has rather significant Art Deco touch.
