Here is a Pinterest account full of modern classical architecture for you to look through Kandi: http://www.pinterest.com/cghfranck/

Probably seen and posted much of it before but perhaps you can find something new in there.

Some really good and tasteful examples again Hed Kandi, thanks a lot!

Another really refined new structure from China for today, the New Furong Palace:

It is stunning! There you go China.. So much better than building a fake Eiffel Tower between commieblocks in middle of nowhere!

Thanks for the great find erbse.

The course above appears to be out of date, from 2008.

Here's something more recent from Boston Architectural College:

Do the French or Italians no longer teach classical architecture? I've scoured the net but am unable to come up with any leads for universities instructing in classicism.

The classical architecture courses offered by Boston Architectural College are on-line courses. You can take them while living in France or Italy.

Pursuing a formation in any proper architecture university should make one able to build classical style(s) buildings easily, no? In terms of structure such buildings are fairly basic compared to those of today, and all the historical ornamentation can be found in descriptive catalogues created for this purpose. The bigger challenge would be to keep producing competent mason workers, especially, but also carpenters, muralists, glass artists etc.

What I was referring to is the dilemma of the complete absence of any classical architecture program offered by universities in France or Italy.

I would argue that the complete opposite is true. A contemporary trained architect with no formal understanding of classicism is the primary reason why we have arrived at the notion of pastiche buildings - ones with incorrect proportions, craftsmanship, etc.

It's like that everywhere. Only parts of the anglophone world rediscovered classical architecture teaching so far (US and UK specifically). I collected some courses for this list:

New Classical Architecture - Education Facilities

I'm myself pushing it through at various German universities currently and it's very well possible we'll finally get proper classical courses back soon. Two private universities are very interested and started looking for apt tutors and facilities already.

It's been awhile since I've visited your Wiki. Tremendous work!!
