I've become quite backlogged recently as I consistently stumble upon a seemingly endless supply of neo-traditionalist buildings which qualify for this thread, however I don't have enough time to do this by myself so I would like to ask for help from some of you to go through the following links, grab the names of the projects, do a Google search and then post the projects with high quality imagery to share with us in this thread.

The quality of projects is quite good, but I just need some assistance as I have in the range of 100 tabs open on my PC with different projects and I need to get rid of some.

As an example:

Maple Lawn Farms - Fulton, MD, USA (Built 2013)

Wheel of Fortune - Potomac, MD, USA (Built 2006)

I'm sure I can pull something up as well, Hed Kandi. Still continuously working on this and this article.


But beforehand I wanna put this statement up for discussion:

Thus, I welcome the trend of global cities becoming increasingly like one another when it comes to new buildings. The less one can tell "which city is this" looking at one specific building, the better. We should aim to erase quixotesque and idiosyncratic characterizations of cities in favor of global styles that can be plopped anywhere, with only adaptations concerning weather and the likes.

I know I've actually picked a few EYA neighborhoods to use here (such as park Potomac).

Rather than browsing real estate listings to find quality traditional work for this thread, you should go to the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art's website where you can look up professional members. There you can search state by state, and find the professional members with website links. Then select projects that are new construction. Here's the link:

http://www.classicist.org/membership...nal-directory/

BTW, The project by Davis General Contracting was a good find. They have other recently built projects that are suitable for this thread.

There's this as well, loads of quality stuff:

Traditional Architecture Group

INTBAU


I'm glad the Britons have such a serious take on the topic of contemporary traditional architecture!

That's more of a cheesy Pomo building, than true traditional revival.

LOL, when I first read your comment I read it as 'porno' building and I was thinking 'how does he know what happens behind those walls?'.

These Vietnamese thingies are really screaming "plastic" all over. Can't see a faithful use of traditional architecture language there. Totally overdone, disneyesque.
Nonetheless very interesting, thanks for sharing.

Erbse, i dont think we should measure these buildings by european "decoration standarts".
Vietnamese Buildings are decorated ion another way than european classics. Just look at hinduistic temple architecture.
After all i find these buildings rather good. Most of the elements are proportioned well and are put together in an somehow aethetic way. The craftmanship on the details is very good, as is the use of material. They use european elements and put them in a regional context, wich works amazingly well. Maybe they put to much use of those domes on the roof, but still they are somehow pleasent to the eye while beeing different to what we are used to.
Its not just the way that they tried to reproduce european or colonial architecture which we see failing so often in this threat, but put them into their own cultural context.

If so, I think they should've gone for Vietnamese ornaments. But I can't really spot any of them. It still looks like cheesy attempts of reproduction to me, like those you'd find in Macau, Dubai or Vegas. Perhaps even worse, as they really aim to look like something.
