Hmm, ah well. Don't like such stuff all that much tbh. That concrete roof doesn't make a lot of sense.

But is that really a new classical building? Or was it there before? It wouldn't apply to this thread then.

The classical part iS totally new and the contemporary part/roof is old. It was a parking garage before. They transformed it as an addition to the new classical building. The classical building was constructed in 2013.

I really love classical/contemporary mixture.

Ok, that certainly is one of the really odd recent constructions then!

Thanks for sharing, really interesting. Still can't believe that's actually newly built - the classical. I mean, why would they rape it like that, visually? Futile effort it seems. I suspect it was there before.

^ Even though it's rather well-crafted, I just can't give a like. It's an affront to all who lost their life due to British bombing raids, no matter of what nationality.

Rosemary Beach, a New Urbanist community in Florida.
It was started in 1995 by Duany Plater Zyberk & Company, who also planned Seaside, Florida.
It's a highly demanded residential location and tourist spot today.

Sure you can let classical architecture evolve creatively.

It's a lovely place really. Though I'd like architects to come up with even more creative solutions, adding a tad of 21st century.
An evolution of Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Expressionism.

Horrible!! It is a historic building with an unsympathetic modernist addition stuck on to, and hovering over the older building...not what this thread is about.

Are you sure the 2013 part is the traditional looking building, and not just the modernist add-on??

It looks so much better in this photo, without the crap addition.

Agreed. Rio lost a lot of its old and new world charme.

It was called the Paris of America for a reason.

Well, just like there were various Paris of the East's, Florence of the North's, Berlin of the New World's etc. I guess.

A question for those who may knowledge on the subject - Is there anywhere online where I can find architectural plans for residences either unbuilt or built which date back to early 20th century or older?

There are several books available on small house plans of the early twentieth century. There are also house plans that were ordered from catalogs such as Sears & Roebuck, and you can find some reprints of those catalogs. Is that what you were looking for?

Well, for a starter and to give something for my region:

This book gives many catalogue samples, drawings of model mansions and elements that weren't built.

It's on the vastly beautiful wooden resort architecture mansions of my home region in Mecklenburg and Western Pomerania, Germany. There's many similar books on various regional topics throughout Germany and Europe.



I've also had a couple general books in English language with drawings and models, need to look up the titles.
