Some new smaller buildings by Swedish firm "Byggnadsverk i Sverige". All built in the 2010s and are inspired by the architecture of Swedish 1840s.

New main building built 2014 (not reconstruction) to an old estate by swedish firm Fredriksson arkitektkontor AB. Not perfect in proportions but we are not spoilt here in the north.

Gaillard Center - Charleston, South Carolina - 2015

I love the Palmetto Corinthian capitals.

Sorry, i meant 17th ct. But you might show me some of those mediaval like original castles instead of just pretending that there are so many of them...

You might check these categories, there are too many to count: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/C..._United_States

Just to give an example of a very reduced defense structure that could perfectly be part of a medieval fortress, the Fort Zach in Florida was built even later, with construction starting in 1845. Bent's Fort in Colorado of 1833 even has similarities with medieval Arabic / maghreb fortresses, also look at the towers and walls of Fort Snelling. Also in the Caribbean you'll find many castle-like forts, like Castle Morro in Puerto Rico.

My point being, that defensive structures resembling medieval castles and fortresses (apart from theme parks) aren't as rare in North America as some would assume. This mainly was due to practical rather than aesthetical reasons, which makes these structures authentic (and even more so than some romanticized castle buildings in Europe, though they are more pleasant imo).

Can someone please help me? I am looking for a picture posted on this thread but since its so long it would take me forever to find it.
It was an image of a new classical bridge built over a highway somewhere in America. Thanks!

Erbse, i know your point was to show that those structures resemble mediaval castles in europe, but beside Bent's Fort, which in fact share lot of similarities with some mediaval arabic desert fortress, all of those look exectly like what thery are. 17th ct "modern" fortress constructions, which proves my point. There are significant differences between mediaval defensive constructions and modern renaissance or baroque constructions and there is a very simple reason for it. Its called artillery

Of course they're built artillery-friendly. I don't remember what the initial point was about and don't care anymore.
