Everything looks good except for Reagan Place. The semi-circular portico at Reagan Place has the column capitals intersecting with the architrave, the bottom of the entablature. I'm not sure why this is, but that's the only issue I see of the whole complex.

Okay, I see what you are saying. Do you think that the new buildings of this complex is within the right dimensions like some of the original buildings of this Jeffersonian style, or do you think they are blown out of proportion and too big?

I think it is very well done, and the proportions are good, but I will get a bit picky on some of the details:

1. Parkland Hall, the domed center building in the top rendering: The Corinthian Columned portico looks great, but the Doric columns below look too thin. They are less than the diameter of Corinthian columns up above, and lower supports that bear most of the building's load should be chunkier and fatter than the supports that are higher up. (Even though this is a steel framed building, the design should be as if it were load bearing stone and masonry construction.) IMO, it would have been better to have arched piers under the Corinthian columns similar to those under the portico at Maple Hall instead of the Doric columns.

2. The windows at Reagan Place would look better if they were more vertically proportioned, like at Maple Hall. The windows at Maple Hall appears to have a 2:1 proportion (twice as high as the width.)

3. The upper floor columns at Reagan Place would look better if they were proportioned similar to maple Hall. The spacing of columns should never be more than their height, and it is preferable for them to have a more vertical proportion, for example, if the columns are 10 feet high, they should be 6 or 7 feet apart.

4. Reagan Place: If the cornice and roof of the wings were elevated so that they aligned with the center part of the building, it would help out the proportions of those upper columns. I don't particularly like when cornices are slightly offset like that; my preference is for a single cornice line across the entire facade. If there were two different cornices because the middle section was 6 stories and the wings were 4 stories, that would be Ok, but when they are offset by a few feet, it bothers me. It's almost like they were supposed to align, but don't.

5. Maple Hall: The portico would look better if it had paired columns at the corners, similar to Parkland Hall.

Just some thoughts.

New approved Buildings in Tallinn by architect firm Allan Strus. Construction start in two months. They and their setting is more "urban" than these pictures show. The are where they are situated is called Kadriorg or Catherines valley in English.

USA universities seem to do traditional buildings quite well, I wish some UK universities would attempt something in that vein...

Agree entirely with every thing you say MRouchell. I knew there was something not quite right about Parkland Hall, as much as I liked it, and you hit the nail on the head, so to speak! Paired columns! Overall a good development, the Americans usually get it right, with important buildings, when it comes to the classical orders but there are a few faults here which could so easily have been avoided.

That particular one in Sochi is a sort of a theme park. As far as I can see there are examples of typical buildings from different parts of Russia (including a Buddhist temple). Places like this are always kitschy, that's their point.

I'm also referring to a lot of Newer buildings that I've seen in other cities too. And While I do highly appreciate Russian Architecture, and have seen some amazing new examples, I personally think that too many of the traditional revival works have awful proportioning, and tend to be made with materials such as Styrofoam, etc. However, I do like the direction much of their work is attempting to go in, even if it's not achieving what it's trying to.
