Wrong!! Notice how the face of the entablature projects over the edge of the column capital. It should align with the shaft.



Correct!! notice the alignment of the column shaft and entablature. Also notice the different components that are missing from the cornice.

The alignment of the column shaft and entablature is all wrong. This is how it should be done:

I totally understand and agree with you Mrouchell. However, you need to lower your expectations from such residential projects.

I don't think he needs to lower them, considering that most of the stuff on here looks no better than the suburban crap outside of my city.

Thanks for diagnosing the problem with why I wasn't able to post.

I posted this drawing because it shows the basic components of a classical entablature, and it shows the proper alignment of the column shaft and face of the entablature. A lot of amateur traditional work gets these details wrong.

My expectations for most things that are built today are pretty low, but stuff posted here should be of a much higher quality.

Until recently, architects were deprived of an architectural education that included how to design classical architecture. More architects are learning classical architecture and their works should be presented here. Leave the amateur stuff out.

I've been to African boondocks, and let me tell you, those look considerably nicer than your usual African boondocks. These are African boondocks:

What is it about Second Empire architecture that appeals to Eastern Europe and Central Asia?

After the second last page I want to poke my eyes out. Vulgar kitsch as far as the eye can reach.

Here they raped and executed beautiful Linderhof Palace (Bavaria/Germany)

I agree with you.
But I must say, those white window blinds on the German original are really inexcusable! They ruin it a lot

They surely did but, I must add, Linderhof itself was the same kitsch for its time (late 19th century). And it still looks vulgar (I couldn't escape this feeling when I was there). The question is, would it feel the same if we don't know when it was built? I have no answer.

Yes, it;s pretty horrendous IMO. M Rouchel gives a wonderful description of what is wrong with this structure. There is certainly a whiff of Soviet era style here.

Maybe it doesn't quite measure up to Suzhou's classical gardens but it's getting there!
I don't pretend to be expert in the detailing of traditional Chinese architecture but I like this development very much. I wish the Chinese would use their own style more often when building "traditional" developments instead of pseudo Western Classical architecture which they unfortunately so often get wrong.

Ismailovo Kremlin, Moscow, Russia (2007)
When I first saw a photo I thought it was built along with the original Moscow Kremlin.
