Those last pictures, the temple and Richmond riversie, show that there's still hope in humanity.

Terry is a world class. It is hard to find architects who are so good in classic design.

But I can name for example Patzschke as one of the best:

The Provo temple is not new construction. It was gutted by fire in 2010 and is being rebuilt as a temple.

It resembles little of its former design.

That's pretty good! The turrets at the corners don't match though. The big circular windows don't go well with the square windows along the edges.

Some of the details don't look very correct, particularly the Ionic pilasters at the round turret in the foreground of the bottom picture. The pilasters appear too skinny, and there is no real strong cornice line. If there is going to be an increasing demand for this type of architecture, it would be wise for architecture schools to teach students how to design classical buildings.

It was finished in the 90's, but, all things considered, could be considered traditional architecture in a new manner.

Central branch of the Chicago Public Library.
