That is beyond gross. China has such a rich culture yet they build these weird play-stage-like stuff. I don't get it. Never will.

Tarlabasi 360, Istanbul, Turkey (U/C)

Mixed use development. A couple of old buildings will be renovated however the vast majority will be demolished and reconstructed. I personally love the project. Istanbul needs so much more of these in the city center. Some buildings are in such horrible condition that reconstructing is cheaper than renovating them. Currently the area is a very dangerous spot in the city and inhabited by the African and Middle Eastern immigrants. So this project is not only gonna change the looks but also the social status.

I don't know about the proportion and all, but, i think, it's better than a no-life building.

New Traditional Homes in Toronto

So I've been taking these photos myself over the last few months, with the intention of eventually posting them here. I'm obsessed with new classical architecture, and I'm a very harsh critic- most designs don't get all the details right. I split my time between New York and Toronto, so These photos are from around Toronto.

Toronto has very little historical architecture, and lacks a dominant individual style. It has a british influence, but less character and history than most North Eastern American cities. Its been a very interesting trend to watch over the last 10 years, how buyer's and builders are tearing down bungalows from the 1960s/1970s and replacing them with traditional "mini- Manors" None of them are perfectly passable as historical, mostly because the homes are too large for the lot, and secondly because of the home owner's NEED for a garage (another problem in Toronto is the lack of transit, and the requirement of a Car)

But in recent years the quality of construction and design has been getting better! I think that more and more home-owners are seeing the benefit of real limestone, slate tile roofs, copper drain spouts and paned windows. Here I am providing some examples that I think are fairly good!













This is a pet-peeve of mine, I cant stand the garages in the basement, The house above has some handsome details, but the garage ruins it, but from an interior layout perspective, Home owners like the garage in the basement, so unfortunately for me (and the city) these sloped driveways seem to be here to stay

Posting a few more from the same photo-set. Homes in Toronto, Canada.

Some of these are much larger homes, further out from the city centre, but none of these are older than 10 years old.










This one wasn't even finished when I took this photo.

A few more!




these are nicely built, but I dont know if there is a precedent for townhomes like this..






This is one of my other pet peeves...... the power lines! Toronto has above ground wires, they ruin the whole street-scape!

I like these houses, but it's too bad the lots aren't large enough for garages to be placed in the back. They should at least be placed to the side (almost as if they were built later).

Considering Dalian used to be under British and Japanese rule, I think it's appropriate. However, that crumbled arch is stupid. I think way back in this thread, somebody posted an American fire station with fake boarded-up windows. It's completely illogical.

Unless you were being facetious, do you realize much of the traditional Chinese stuff in this thread are rebuilds of stuff destroyed during the Cultural Revolution under Mao Zedong, a "hardcore nationalist leader?" China needs a democratic leader, but that won't happen in the near future.
