The Gate Museum, Muscat, Oman, 2001

This one reminds me of the Aladdin. I never knew Oman is very different compared to its neighbors. You learn a new thing everyday.

^ Is that an entirely new idea for a building, out of the blue?
Or is there a historical predecessor they now reconstructed?

Very interesting in any case.

The building itself is entirely new obviously but I am not sure if it is a replica. I think they wanted to give it a local feel to it since it is a "natural history" museum.

I ain't complaining

I agree that postmodern buildings do not belong here but not so sure about modernist ones. 'Modernist' is a broad term, and if some new bulding very closely reflects early modernist architecture (so that you can confuse it with a really old building) it seems to be not out of place here. That Orlando hotel fits these terms quite well, I suppose.

In that spirit here is the Bauhausian 10 Sullivan building in Soho - Lower Manhattan, New York City. It was just finished and is nearly ready to welcome residents.

Lol, the whole thread became a dump after Hed Kandi left it.
Kandi was a good guy but let's not pretend that he didn't post a whole bunch of crap along with the beautiful buildings. He was far more forgiving than I with respect to traditional architecture.

I think I would have preferred something more Spanish colonial to be honest....

Although that building is awesome, I don't think it fits in well with the thread as Bauhaus itself is at the beginning of modernism and not 'traditional' in style.

Actually its design is way to mediaval to be there since colonial times

A 16th fortres like appereance would look more colonial, but wouldt fit the needs of the buidling as a dwelling.

Many 16th century fortresses overseas were very "medieval" in appearance, reduced to their function mainly. While in Europe it was much more about decorative art at that time already.


Regarding Retro-Modernism: We said we allow these here, so smooth Streamline, Art Deco and buildings like 10 Sullivan have a place here. But for things like that Orlando building or a potential Seagram twin, there should be another thread imho. I can't see any remaining connection to classical/traditional architecture there.

Agree with OakRidge on Hed Kandi, I really appreciate the sheer amount he contributed, but clearly not everything was of good quality. It doesn't matter so much anyway. New Classical became much more wide-spread since we started this forum here (following the Europ. Classic Arch. forum that has been at Euroscrapers for a while), and following that, we created and extended "New Classical architecture" at Wikipedia and other crucial articles supporting the spread of the ideas.

Why do you guys insist on posting these modernist buildings? Bauhaus is not a traditional nor a classical style. It is modernist. We are aiming to present buildings those take the foundation from historical styles. Bauhaus style doesn't have any sort of historical reference to it. I do appreciate the effort but please post buildings relevant to this thread. There are a lot of threads where you guys can present your modernist buildings. Thank you for your cooperation!

Larung Gar Buddhist Monastery, China (1980-)

Founded in a Tibetan-speaking region of Sichuan after Chairman Mao's death, this is among the largest Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in the world, with over 10,000 monks and nuns by 2000.











There is constant construction to this day 30+ years after the monastery broke ground:

While there was a preexisting memorial in this location what you can see now is essentially all new.
