Sometimes a city has the good fortune of being rebuilt at a time when the architecture is good. This is what happened in Paris when most of the buildings that today we think of "Parisian" were built. This seems to be what is going on in Berlin today, Berlin is building the best original new architecture that is traditionally inspired anywhere in the western world. I love the New Berlin style, and, as you know Erbse, (with your help in the Boston thread) I have pointed to the style as one that other cities should be inspired by but not necessarily imitate (or it wouldn't be Berlin anymore).

Cameronpaul I have been to London and Bath and some other places in England and yours is a beautiful country, but I have to say some of the Brutalist stuff and stuff along the Thames, What were they thinking?!

The only consolation is that at least the crap is being built there is being built in former parking lots created in the 50s and 60s when we were tearing down our history as it looks like you all did with yours too. I will say that Chicago is a notable exception. They are building some great residential stuff there as you can see on this thread!

It's a completely new design and not a reconstruction.

Yes it's difficult to comprehend what went on in the 60's and 70's and in general a lot of new builds in the U.K. are better than that low point but there are still far too many substandard buildings getting approval. From what I have observed I think many of the latest developments in the U.S. are of better design than here but there will always be junk because there are junk clients who haven't got a clue about aesthetics. With regard to new apartments, Berlin is leading the way in Europe with some very good designs and gradually the city is becoming a great European Capital once again - congratulations to them for being bold enough to reject gimmicks and cheap development (some exceptions as always of course)

Coventry, England

The building on the right, with the wooden door, is a genuine medieval building.

The one in the middle... is a completely new gap filler.
