The Chi Lin Nunnery was founded in 1934 but was rebuilt in 1990 following the style of Tang Dynasty (618 AD to 907 AD), traditional Chinese architecture.

I'm getting tired of all the neo-haussmannian crap built in Paris' suburbs.



Gosh it's boring.

^ That stuff isn't really convincing at all. It has some plastic look to it I just can't stand about some neohistorist buildings. The feeling for historical proportions and materials somehow got lost over the last decades.


I'm in love with Jakriborg. It's really well done, comparable to Poundbury in England. That's how it should be done.

Why the heck would they demolish it? Talking about Chinese buildings and sustainability...

I would say this isn't the best recent traditional architecture from the Balkans. For example, I find this one to be a timeless masterpiece :



Picture Page | Vladimir Sonkin | Picasa Web Albums

Name: Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ
Serbian Name: Саборни Храм Христовог Васкрсења
Alternative Serbian Name: Saborni Hram Hristovog Vaskrsenja
Year: 1993 onward
Architects: Predrag Ristić, Jovan Popović
Height: 40 m
Location: Podgorica / Montenegro

Indeed, that is one outstanding structure. Thanks for introducing Alexei


It seems they're always looking for pretty traditional elements when building new orthodox churches, almost comparable to traditions in building Hindu temples. I haven't seen any modern examples so far, so I guess there aren't (m)any eh?

In some Orthodox countries (Greece, Armenia, Macedonia) they have a prescription for success from which there was very little derivation. In Russia, Romania and Serbia, on the other hand, we see a lot more diversity. Yet, all the churches are still built within the local architectural traditions. That is partly due to the fact that the Orthodox church is a very conservative institution and partly due to the fact that the local traditions are spiritually self-sufficient. A special case is Ukraine where we see a lot of experimental architecture - that is due to the fact that Ukraine had never gotten a chance to develop a local "eternal style" of masonry architecture (wooden - yes, but not masonry) - so now there are searches for such (although in the Russian-speaking parts of the country the people are satisfied with local interpretations of Russian styles).

PS: This one (Magnitogorsk, Russia) looks unusually modern.

When talking of orthodox architecture - is it all about a mere taste for tradition or is it some kind of canonical rule to be strictly followed?
