Although I agree with you, I think the balconies are well integrated withing the building.

The Sanctuary of Truth, PATTAYA

Sanctuary of Truth (Thai: ปราสาทสัจธรรม, also called Wang Boran and Prasat Mai) is a temple construction in Pattaya, Thailand. The sanctuary is an all-wood building filled with sculptures based on traditional Buddhist and Hindu motifs. The building is close to 105 meters (345 feet) high (according to local publicity brochure 100 meteres high, 100 meteres long, area 2,115 m sq -nov 2012) and covers an area of more than two rai. It features contemporary Visionary art based on traditional religious themes. The project was initiated as an idea of Thai businessman Lek Viriyaphant in 1981, and is scheduled to be complete in 2025. (Wikipedia:2013)

^ Reminds me a bit of Sagrada Familia. When Sagrada Familia will be finished, large parts of it will qualify for this thread...

Wow! Those Stanford building are really impressive, very much in keeping with the original University complex and another example of how the U.S. often leads the way in creating beautiful, well proportioned and high quality traditionalist type new builds. IMO 10 out of 10

Stilll, there are some examples of good traditionalist architecture in the former USSR (many were in this thread) but they're overshadowed by tons of bad ones.
And I wouldn't agree that former Soviet Republics are total winners in the international competition for making the worst traditionalist pieces of architecture. Some Eastern Asian countries have very strong positions in this as well.
Yes you are right there, some S.E. Asian examples are dreadful and of course as you say not all examples from the former USSR are bad, I have seen some here on SSC that are very good indeed with a distinctive Russian feel about them which is commendable. We get a lot of trashy modernist speculative building here in the U.K. and IMO that's every bit as bad as some over the top so-called traditionalist buildings. I'm afraid it's so often economic considerations that take precedence over quality which ought to be unacceptable now considering the damage done during the 1960's, 70's and 80's.

Absolutely Awful! It doesn't get much worse than this. All of the details are completely incorrect, particularly the entablature that extends over the column capitals rather than aligning with the column/pilaster shafts.

Great building - the designer clearly took inspiration from Vaux le Vicompte, one of the greatest examples of French 17th c. achitecture. The interior looks stunning and not at all kitschy or vulgar (same meaning I guess - kkkk) unlike some recent attempts that are compete disasters.

The final Pavillion on Holborn Viaduct in London has been rebuilt

[IMG]http://i41.************/atq5ba.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i42.************/24n4sw0.jpg[/IMG]

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1502036&page=9

The 2 pavilions on the south side of the bridge are originals, this ones twin was rebuilt about 10 or so years ago and now the 4th and final one is complete

Suppose its more of a reconstruction as opposed to new build, although nothing of the original remained and it is probably mainly facade hiding a stairwell like the other recently reconstructed one
