Would call this revival just because it has roundet edges. But its of course a eautifull design.

The lines that wrap around the building are very deco.

I take your point about the "rounded lines" but this is certainly Bauhaus style as opposed to Art Deco. Bauhaus eschewed decorative elements found in pure Art Deco. Good design though and unlike a lot of new buildings we get today Bauhaus always used very good materials.

Copying is not inherently a crime-- why, the Palladians considered it something of a virtue. Western architects have copied each other's works since time immemorial. It becomes criminal, or, better yet, ahborrent when it is done badly.

One must admire their enthusiasm, though. Kitschy and cheap pastiches of traditional architecture are merely unfortunate. But it verges on the tragic to see buildings in Baku, Tianjin, Saigon, or anywhere else built with quality materials and a high level of craftsmanship, but clearly designed by someone without a firm grasp on the fundamentals of classical architecture.

I've had sitting in my head the idea of Western traditional architects travelling to other countries, teaching local architects the rules and principles of classical architecture--proportions, the classical orders, and so forth. One could consider it pro bono work. It'd mean much better architecture all around.
Absolutely agree with everything you say. The new building offends by "getting it wrong" something the late 19th/early 20th c architects would never do. Western traditional architects travelling to emerging countries would be a great idea but they would also have to be well schooled in architectural principals. From my experience the U.S. has some of the best without question. Of course they might not be welcome by the local architectural establishment who probably think they know it all!!

К Вам никаких претензий, все претензии к авторам этого проекта забывших указать истинного автора - Леонтия Бенуа.

I assume they will add to the church in the upcoming years as funds become available.
