With the exception of the plain glass windows, it is a remarkable and very beautiful building.

"false" historical? What do you mean by this? Are you saying the building is fake?

Mormon Temple in Curitiba, Brazil, completed in 2008.
These peculiar trees are Araucarias or Paraná pines (Araucaria angustifolia), a native species of the region.

These are some very good examples from St. Petersburg. Last one is obviously only a render, but looks nice.

Very good examples but there are also very weirdos and bad, i mean if you want to copy a past style, you have to copy the past style without that kind of changes, if you don't it is to launch again postmodernism of 70's and not the beautiful "neo historicism" that could be create.

For example, in every style until world war I, none of the windows in architecture were without, at least, a minimally upper architrave:

Neogothic windows


Neorenaissance windows


Neobaroque windows

The neo-baroque window on the right is gorgeous.

It would look much better without this strange thing on the top.

m.a.g.- that must be some of the best postmodern buildings I've ever laid my eyes upon. The design is just great, and the materials look like very high quality.

VCU school of business. This may be a little modern, but it has sort of a Romanesque/Chicago style feel
