I fear that these recent examples have crossed the boundary into kitsch.

New Townhouses on State Street in Brooklyn, New York.

Designed by Fairfax & Sammons.

Fairfax & Sammons is an internationally recognised firm of classical architects specialising in residential architectural design.

"We are committed to the tradition of architecture and firmly believe that classicism, be it expressed informally or formally, in the domestic realm offers creative solutions, both timeless and beautiful."

— Sir Roger Vernon Scruton, filósofo britânico.

But still, some details by itself are not bad at all, efficiently and accurately done. For example, these caryatids are really good. It should be a copy made from some real historical building, i just wonder which one...

Definitely leave out kitsch! This stuff is completely inappropriate for the thread at hand!

We want to look for the bright side of architecture here. For the other side, there's this:

The Dark Side of Architecture

Which part of this building is new? It seems that it is just a conversion from office to residential.

New building near Venice, in a town called Spinea, Italy.
A sort of Neo-Renaissance with a hint of Northern Europe
