@That other complex (Church & Community) you've shown before Kandi, that was a postmodernist caricature rather than a faithful classical-style building. An insult to Tuscany's country residences and churches! The updated example is a little better, but well...

^ That's a somewhat creative approach towards classical architecture, without falling deep beyond the postmodern fence. Thanks to proportions, materials and details obviously done right. That's what contemporary architecture should gear towards, taking the best of our history and create something new! (it's certainly not perfect, but I like where it's going) It also has some Arts&Crafts and Prairie Style appeal.
