Looks like someone came along in the 70s and destroyed it like they destroyed most historic buildings during that time.
The project is located on Magazine Street in the Uptown area about a half a mile from Audabon Park if you are familiar with New Orleans.

The original building was built in the early 1970s. The front facade was completely dismantled and a new facade built in its place. This is not a reconstruction or a restoration; this is a newly designed traditional facade designed for an existing building.

The project is not complete yet, and I am hoping that they stick with the design. Already the contractor and developer have decided to substitute applied stucco for some of the cast stone elements.

Wow its actually pretty good. The building to the left is significantly more rich in design. However, the corner building is a suitable addition and beautiful in itself.

It is not outstanding compared to the building next door, and quite frankly many of the details still seem to be poor, and parts of it, like the first level, as bland and undesirable as a modernist blank wall. However, while I don't know much about the state of traditional design in Vilnius, I can see that this traditionalist design is very detailed compared to other "wanna be's" around the world. This one seems creative and fits the surrounding architecture well. It is perhaps even a sign of evolving and maturing traditionalist style.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Dai Hoc Su Pham/The University of Pedagogy (Education)





A hotel in Mui Ne, Vietnam




The People's Committee in Mui Ne, Vietnam



None of these are good examples of classical architecture, but at least they're trying. These attempts show some people in Vietnam want classical architecture, they just don't know how to build it yet.

love that Oxford one. Actually Tudor times were quite influenced by Islamic designs, thanks to the Ottomans:

I stumbled upon this: It appears to be a large shopping mall in St. Petersburg Russia.
