Sé que a muchos esto le puede parecer hasta repulsivo, pero yo quiero diez de estos en Quilmes y todos los que sean necesarios en Buenos Aires. Te "neoyorquizan" cualquier parte y aportan algo de elegancia donde no la hay.
Además los japoneses les meten todos los detalles, relieves y molduras. Es decir, mantienen el espíritu artístico y artesanal de la arquitectura que se perdió bastante con la modernidad.

Here it is totally buried in the densest area of the Western world, the Upper East Side. (look about an inch up from the upper right-corner of the white and black building in the foreground).

^ These look like the podium buildings are actually older buildings, that were vertically extended?!

People, just because there is a brick or some detail on the building doesn't mean it's made in old style, we're showing buildings in traditional styles, not inspired by them...

Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre, Loughborough, United Kingdom | John Simpson Architects

This is an absolutely marvellous proposal; perhaps one of the best contemporary classical-styled projects I've ever seen.

The following are a couple quotes from the website.

Quote:
The new rehabilitation centre for servicemen and women planned as a replacement for Headley Court is now a reality. The centre has been designed by leading classical firm John Simpson Architects of London and is backed by the Duke of Westminster, himself a former soldier. Parliament announced the official go-ahead in July 2014 and the contract for this prestigious £250 million construction project is about to be let.

John Simpson Architects were commissioned to design a masterplan for a substantial series of new buildings within the registered historic landscape of the Stanford Hall estate near Loughborough. The buildings have been arranged to form a series of courtyards and external garden spaces providing a conducive environment for the rehabilitation of wounded service personnel. In addition, the practice will be restoring much of the sensitive historic fabric of Grade II* listed Stanford Hall which is at the historic heart of the estate and at the core of the proposals.

The centre will provide facilities for a range of treatments including for trauma rehabilitation, neurological care and a “back to life” capability which will, ensure that for people leaving the centre are fully prepared for life outside.

Listed building consent and planning permission has already been given for the project which will provide 400,000 sq ft of new floor space within a number of buildings, creating a new Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre which will sit comfortably in the surrounding landscape.

Construction is due to start in summer this year and the facilities transferred from Headley Court will be fully operational by 2018.

Listed building consent and planning permission has been given for the project, which will provide 40,000 sqm of new floor space within a series of buildings, creating a new Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre, in the curtilage of Grade II* listed Stanford Hall and other Grade II listed buildings. A further 5000 sqm of refurbished space will be provided through the restoration of Stanford Hall.

The buildings have been arranged to form a series of courtyards and external garden spaces providing an environment conducive for the rehabilitation of service personnel. Importantly, this arrangement allows for the different character areas of the estate to be maintained.

The DNRC will be the centre for training and research in rehabilitation medicine. The historic house is used as an education centre whilst a state of the art research facility is housed in one of the new pavilions.

The centre is used by a wide variety of people, including inpatients, outpatients, staff, visitors, and medical practitioners. Our design allows for a series of logical flows which do not interfere with one another.

The project involves the design of two theatre spaces which are required to fulfil a number of functions and therefore have been carefully engineered.

100-seat Performance Space: With the Education Centre located in the historic hall, it was important that the associated lecture theatre should be positioned nearby. Fortuitously the former Badminton Court provided ample space for such a theatre and can be readily adapted with the addition of a new acoustic ceiling and a bespoke built-in audiovisual system. The fact that the original sprung floor of the Badminton Court is still in place has enabled the room to also be used as a gym for the practical training elements of military education courses. This adds considerable value as it means that the rehabilitation gyms do not need to be programmed in for education use.

290-seat Performance space: The existing Art Deco theatre is adapted to seat 290 people including up to 30 wheelchair users. This will be used as a cinema, a theatre for music recitals and performances and also for conference facilities to support the education element of the site.

The design takes advantage of, and adapts, the existing counterweight systems and modular forestage to create a uniquely flexible performance space.

The adaptation of the Stanford Hall Estate into a military rehabilitation centre has required imaginative masterplanning and the resourceful use of existing buildings. The existing listed buildings and registered parkland as well as the topography of the site provided a very tight set of constraints within which the layout of the facility had to be constructed.
