What bothers me is that countries with a very rich cultural heritage try to copy Western styles in their revival architecture. One would think that they're better than that. But, on the other hand early 20th century American architecture at the time was being called kitschy, out of proportions and generally worthless.

What does early twentieth century American architecture have to do with countries with a "very rich cultural heritage" copying Western styles in their revival architecture? What are you even specifically referring to concerning the latter?

So you can write, but you can't read? Because your post has nothing to do with this thread.

If one was to consider Hanoi, Vietnam for example, whose architecture of the old town was largely influenced by the French, it is as much ingrained into the cultural fabric of the Vietnamese as say the cultural monuments in Hue - both constructed within the 19th century.
i think we also have to consider one thing too
alot of these western styled buildings in eastern countries, similar to the hotel you posted from 1901 were no western influenced, but in essence plotted there by westerners themselves. the european presence in east asia again is not because of the asians' desire to travel to the west and borrow ideas, but it was mostly europeans who went and built their styles in those eastern countries. in my opinion, there was no active involvement of the natives in the developments of such styles, hence, it never became "part of theirs" , instead, even until today, these western buildings in asia stick out as 'foreign" and even "colonial looking" .

its not european architectural presence, but more so actual european presence IMO

thats why many people still consider those newly built western style buildings more as copies of foreign culture rather than the native culture which has been "shaped/influenced" in part by those foreign cultures

for example, many late 19th century buildings in egypt or the levantine areas are influenced by french and generally european architecture, however, they are clearly influenced and seem much more native. it is obvious that these styles were the result of native egyptian attempts to broaden the architectural and engineering culture of that time by using and "domesticating" foreign elements that they found useful and pleasing

tehran , Iran
(near africa blvd)
the little gable roof thing on the red building ruins the whole street harmony, same with those round balconies and wedding cake rooflines of the building sin the back. the best one is in the front

the one in the back is nice , the one in the front has good small details but is way out of proportion , the balconies are irrelevant too, and sadly its too tall for its design, and the blank side wall.... man tehran needs a dictator of a mayor to really restrict these selfish builders
the issue with such blank walls is that either they never get covered by a tall enough building or they force the whole street to be raised to that level, and then it looks like a 50 meter high wall sticking out of the city, like an over-glamorized and over-stretched commieblock

here is the tower in the background of the first post
now, in my opinion, its a tad bit too heavy, a bit kitsch and somewhat irrelevant to its postmodernist surroundings
it has received some criticism for looking a bit too greco-roman and not matching to the remainder of the buildings or geographical context
the dome is a bit too much in my opinion, and the ornamentation is a bit bulky
but i appreciate the idea to not build plain glass boxes,but the more i looked at it, i actually like it , especially below the crown-line
those ( glass boxes) are needed too, occasionally, but only occasionally, i like to see more warmth and stone and solid wall in towers
these are what actually fill a city

I actually rather like this building! Yes it's heavily Greco-Roman, but so are the ruins of Petra and several other archaeological sites in that general area. To me it's more in tune with the regional architecture than those boring 'boxes' that surround it.

At least you're acknowledging that it's your opinion and not a fact.

i know there certainly were/are native architects that built in that style, and i knew that most would be japanese
i never denied that the natives never took on such style, in fact they did and in a very elegant way, and i thank you for posting these architects
i probably didnt write well in my first post , what i meant is that i have observed that these architects generally emerged after the initial set of western styles were already brought to those lands prior to them
it wasnt these people that were the first to merge or bring western architecture to the east
hence it still seems a bit "imported", im not saying its bad or good, its quite interesting rather
