^ Thanks for sharing! Too much on the inside for me, but the architecture is very pleasant. You can almost be dead-sure it'll be there in a hundred years. While I wouldn't bet on too many of these superfancy-modernist mansions surviving, they're recycled like cheap cotton shirts...

A late 1990s New Urbanist quarter in Stockholm that I think pretty much suits the city. It's speaking the traditional language of the city's fabric, but still adds something fresh. Lovely, livable.

Sankt Eriksomrňdet is a good example how to build urban new quarters, yet sustainable and sticking to what makes a place, traditional elements. Block perimeters are important - don't build satellite housing estate like blocks or rowhouses!

The architecture might lean a little towards postmodernism, but I still think it's justified here for being so authentic and well-crafted.

That Stockholm development is really impressive. There's good density, good green spaces, color, proximity to water, etc. Basically everything people want in a pleasant living situation. The architecture is also identifiably Scandinavian, even with the concessions to post-modernism. Still, I imagine it's much less hideously depressing in the winter than the typical Functionalism that's dominated northern architecture. Those two towers also go a long way as landmarks to define the neighborhood. Does anyone know what existed on the land before they built those blocks? How was this project received?

I've always been a fan of Neo historic buildings.. I think monumentality and impact of old style religious buildings or palaces are unrivaled by most of modern architecture.. Would love to see more of that in my country (Italy) especially since war erased a lot of real historic buildings, then replaced by horrible '50/'60/'70 commie blocks...

Oh wow, an Italian complaining. I mean, you're definitely blessed with the best preserved harmonious old towns and heritage sites in the world.

But you might be interested in the work of Pier Carlo Bontempi, he's won the international $200,000 Driehaus Prize just a week ago.

He has designed new urban quarters for Parma and his region in Emilia-Romagna for instance.

Isolato Sant'Anna, Fornovo di Taro, Italy - by Pier Carlo Bontempi:

I know, we've been blessed with many real historical towns.. Just I don't like how things changed after WWII, I would have kept the style.. Until very recently (with Milan new projects Porta Nuova and Citylife), I hardly found anything built after the '20 in Italy that could be found beautiful (very few exceptions obviously exists)

After WWII a lot of good public architecture was built in Italy - in fact.

I wish I could say the same about private development.

Of course the whole of that good public architecture is modernist style - apart from some post-war or post-earthquake reconstruction.

Departments and faculties of architecture were - and still are - a stronghold of ideological modernism.

Time to be less patronizing towards craftmen-architects like Tagliavini and Bontempi.

Erbse, thx 4 sharing. I was unaware of that kind of vernacular architecture in my country even today.

Ja, the main issue in Europe remains ideology. In most parts of the world, North America especially, architecture is architecture. If you want to build a beautiful new classical home or commercial building, a public building or skyscraper even, hardly anyone's gonna bother you. People will admire it if it's well-done.
While you can be almost sure to face a shitstorm in most of current Europe, no matter how good the architecture is. Heck, modernists even dared to mock the grand Dresden Frauenkirche reconstruction.

But it's starting to change as we speak, with a new generation of environment and tradition conscious architects, who put the ideology of their academic education in question. Europe needs classical architecture courses too, like these. It's what essentially makes our cities!

Agree with this - we need to stop levelling and uglyfying our cities
with bland uniform globalist-modernist architecture, that looks the same everywhere:

Hell to modernism. I'll go for this all the time:

Think about it:



It's not about praising traditional architecture, it is about living and continuing it for our own well-being.

Wow, these are really strange again... Pretty disneyesque.
So what's going on there in Vietnam, what is this all about?
