Is the above a new building?

Completed a few months ago:

Quote:
Charged with a vital role in the economic redevelopment and reinvigoration of downtown Spartanburg, the 60,000 square foot, three-story George Dean Johnson, Jr. College of Business and Economics building will be the University of South Carolina Upstate’s first downtown. The College is adjacent to the recently completed David M. Schwarz Architects-designed Chapman Cultural Center, and thus its design reflects a compatibility with its next-door neighbor. The College includes a business incubator space for new ventures in addition to technology-enhanced classrooms and faculty offices. University and city officials see the College as an institution with great potential for the city of Spartanburg and a long-term commitment to higher education in the region. With respect to this long-term vision, the project is in the process of obtaining LEED certification and opened in June of 2010.

The Meier Hall at Elmira College is astonishing! How long did it take to be built?

But the last one is quite an interesting imitation of Second Empire / Belle Epoque elements.
Well what seems to be over the top for you is the style and character of the region. Its what makes it unique!

This looks more like a prison!

I notice most of the buildings in this thread are religious. Even the university buildings cannot hold a candle to the mosques, temples, and churches pictured. Why must religion have a monopoly on great architecture?

Because religion values the art of craftmanship and slow development while the secular forces worship the religion of progressivism...

Impresionantes todos

La arquitectura tailandesa debe ser una de las mas esteticas de mundo junto al Gotico, sera que me gustan esa exuberancia formal que expresan.
