Well this is a prefab facade, but it's certainly a step ahead compared to the otherwise bone-hard modernist designs you see popping up all over Toronto and Canada in general (somewhat reminiscent of the "New Berlin Style"):

Also the castle-like building on the left corner here, also recent one. Maybe it's neo historic or maybe just some noveau riche interpretation of what's ''cool''...

Ah well, Duncan Stroik, of course! That architect got an eye for details.

Though his buildings look almost too perfect, well let's give them some time to age (if they age at all).

You are so right there - and the bad fact is they are still building real crap in many cities in the U.K. Unlike many European cities the amount of damage caused in historic and beautiful centres in England during WW2 was very small but the architectural profession managed to destroy far more than German bombers ever could. While there have been a lot of good quality buildings constructed in the past couple of decades there are still far too many cheap crappy eyesores going up for get rich quick developers.

This is a completely new addition, not a rebuild. The craftsmanship is to a level of perfection so rarely seen that had I not discovered it to be newly constructed, I would have believed this tower to have stood upon this site for centuries.

Fascinating thread. I'm posting some pictures from Nepal. The devastating earthquake in April destroyed almost 50% of our world heritage sites in Kathmandu. Nevertheless, there have been attempts to revive the old traditional Nepalese architecture, particularly in the form of hotels and luxury apartments, long before the earthquake. Dwarika's Hotel is smack in the middle of Kathmandu but is rated as one of the most beautiful and what is termed here as "neo-traditional" hotels in Nepal.

Nepal will rebuild, as it always has. The country has seen more than its fair share of earthquakes (http://www.seismonepal.gov.np/index.php?linkId=56).

I purchased this book by a leading scholar just a month prior to the recent earthquake. Highly recommended!

http://www.amazon.com/Elements-Nepal...e+architecture
The hotel's website says it was built in the mid 1990s. (http://www.dwarikas.com/home/our-story)

Earthquakes have been a part of our history. We've rebuilt the heritage sites numerous times and we will do so again. I'll have to check out that book. Looks fascinating. As for anything to do with Nepal's sociopolitical scenario, I'd recommend the following:

http://www.amazon.com/Forget-Kathman...rget+kathmandu

http://www.amazon.com/Royal-Ghosts-S...s=royal+ghosts

I'll post a few other pics soon.
