Wow, some of these are really nice, but others look like cheap pieces of crap. It's weird, that with all our technological advantages we cannot build as nice buildings like we could 100 years ago. And some of these have stupid looking "classical" details, it's as if the designer had no clue of any historical details!

WOW! WOW! WOW!
I love this! I really do! Back in Romania many old buildings are erased to leave place for new office buldings and in some countryies people are mading buildings in old style. Good! This means that you respect your architectural heritage.
