This thread has produced some very controversial ground for discussion. We've seen literally thousands of good, mediocre, horrible and fantastic examples of New Classical architecture. I for one am very thankful for everyone contributing, even if it hurts my eyes sometimes! Special thanks and credits go to Hed Kandi for the enormous efforts here. Let's keep it coming!

Everyone who wants the world to get more sustainable, timeless and qualitative architecture should gear towards New Classical. We should also aim to develop it and find new ways to express all our amazing local cultures in contemporary architecture.

Looks awesome, by the way! In some cases you can fall on your face with retro architecture, but this one has a lot of class. Love Stern.

Well, however incongruous the this thread is within 'skyscrapercity', and however long it has been going (I seem to remember this or a similar thread before 2009), frankly I'm really glad it's here. Even when the buildings don't quite work, they're in the right direction, and when they're good they make my heart sing.

When I see some of the new Chinese buildings, I don't think how terrible for China, I think lucky bastards, why aren't we building like that? Where I live in southern England, mostly what I see is decent, individual, ornamented old buildings making way for dull, badly built, non-descript boxes.

So, my thanks to Hed Kandi, I remember the flak this thread (or its previous incarnation) got when it started, long may it prosper. Don't get big-headed, but out of all the internet, this is where I come to to cheer myself up. I just wish someone would start a proper high victorian gothic revival revival.

Maybe I should clarify what I said. I have never seen a building constructed with modern amenities in China, but otherwise completely devoid of Western influence. From what I see, most of the buildings in that thread, with the exception of temples, are of Western form with Chinese architectural elements. Most look quite good, but that doesn't satisfy people like Tiaren or Hybow, who seem to think cultural diffusion is evil and imperialistic.

Woah, stop there right now! Where did I even suggest anything of that sort? You, just as Hed Kandi, still don't get it. I have nothing against China building in western traditional architecture styles. (I even was complimenting it before, together with the US, UK, Germany and Netherlands.) I have something against bad architecture, as simple as that.

I actually feel really sorry for you guys, that apparently can't see the difference of high quality neo-traditional architecture, that's in compliance with classic standards (on whatever part of the globe it is build) or cheap, kitschy Disney-stuff, were some styrofoam stucco, columns or putti are thrown on a facade and it's also called neo-traditional (also on whatever part of the globe it is build).

To make my point, I will now show you good and bad examples of only China! So that no one falsely accuses me again, that I have something against China or any other part of the world building in a neo-traditional style of architecture.

Now, can't you honestly tell the difference, why some are bad and the others are good? If not, that's okay...but don't insult people, that have a sense of style, or that have studied architecture or design (like I have), if they give professional critique in this thread.

This is how Paseo Cayalá in Guatemala City is looking right now. Construction started around 2010 if I'm not mistaken.

This one is amazing! Pure class. Some of the very best examples do indeed come from the US.

Reminds me very much of this townhouse in Berlin, build 1891:
