Not true at all. There's plenty of modern buildings that use natural materials while keeping the modernist aesthetic.

Just using natural materials alone doesn't make a building sympathetic or cozy though. The combination of both sadly is very rare with modernist buildings and almost exclusively happens with expensive private homes.

Some interesting vernacular buildings. But actually newly built? Please provide your sources and the ca. date when a building was finished. This isn't solely a picture thread, but an information thread garnished with pictures. Thanks!

Ok, no problem. They are all newly built. From now on I will provide the date of construction

I disagree. They may be quite ramshackle in appearance, but they are the sort of thing that defines rural America. They also incorporate, albeit discrete, classical shapes and ornamentation (around the windows for example).

Ah, the good old days when the Sagrada Familia (designed in the 1880s) was on the first page and rather modern buildings were posted simply because they were clad in brick.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1022349

This...thing was on the second page of this very thread:



Page 17:



Neither traditional nor classical...modernism in shingles from Page 25:



And there was a log cabin on the bottom of the first page. This thread has always had an eclectic mix of high-style, vernacular, and modernism in brick and wood.

I think I wasn't moderating this subforum when the thread was started in 2009. Only a little later (might have been sometime in 2010). I didn't stroll through all the pages of various threads then, of course. But I had a sharp eye to keep various threads clean when I started moderation. And oh my gosh there were so many incredibly poor and totally unrelated pictures and posts everywhere... If only you knew how I was busy here.

Though the culture generally improved a lot, when the architecture subforum turned bigger and more knowledgable users joined, so self-control obviously helps a lot these days.

I would say that even in 2014 and 2012 there are lots of debatables. The Disney castles have got to go, but we saw things like this:

In spite of what the first page says, this has never really been a strictly classical forum. Vernacular and modernized buildings using a traditional aesthetic have been allowed for quite some time. Nothing personal, and if you want us to split out the vernacular we can do so.

Yeah at times this thread was literally flooded so it was hard to keep track. Loads of postmodern and totally non-related abominations in here, but well. Everyone with some eye for architecture should be able to distinguish.

It always is a thin line in some way. We don't want to bar people from posting here by super strict rules, do we.

I just think shacks aren't really suitable for this thread. Vernacular is allowed here, but it should be rather relevant, like a bigger-sized home of considerable quality. After all, we're looking for good quality buildings here, rather than for having them all. Cheers!
