A few found with the help of Google Street View:

Acacia Mall & Offices, Kampala, Uganda. It's not particularly accurate to any one style but I don't find it tacky at all. Nice urbanism too, for a mall.







Malaysia Department of Insolvency in Putrajaya, Malaysia. I don't know what style I'd call it other than Islamic revival (Yemeni? Sahelian?) but it's pretty beautiful. I'd go bankrupt if that's what it took to get inside.



Pullman hotel, not far from those bankruptcy offices. Kitsch, but cool kitsch. Please ignore the spaceship in the background!






And one not from Street View:

Fake Brooklyn-style lofts, Plaza Diamant, Conakry, Guinea.

That last one's in Guinea? I'm impressed with the quality of construction.

Some ugly kitsch
If even you think it's ugly kitsch, just don't post it here, please. It's not the right thread. We have loads of options called "The Dark Side of Architecture", "Ugliest buildings", etc. - make use of these.

The thread at hand is for quality buildings and designs solely, thank you.

Oui monsieur. You can tell from the flags on the right; this is a Chinese-Guinean joint venture. I think you can see a bit of the sales center:



peeking out in the picture. Other buildings in the project include:





Sort of Shanghai-colonial Tudor style townhouses



More townhouses and some detached.

Walk from Brooklyn to Shanghai! None of these images are mine; I stumbled across this development on the internet (one of the Africa forums, maybe?)

^ Looks quite San-Francisco-esque, I like it!
Similar buildings could be built almost anywhere and still look good.
The only thing they should think about solving better is the car parks/garages.

The garages are completely authentic for San Francisco:


Definitely a bit streamlined/modernized but still a pretty darned nice interpretation of the style.

Thanks
