Please don't, this doesn't belong here. It's a postmodern mall, not faithful to classical or traditional architecture.

You can show postmodern architecture there: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1704883
And this is a general forum about shopping malls and stores: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=3254

Thank you.

American and English examples in here are the very best! Classy and of overall great quality. You often can't even make out they are new at all. They might as well be already a 100 years old, only recently renovated.

I'd consider this as neo-classical and something entirely different as 'traditional' in the sense of vernacular, but I agree it's fabulous. Simple, no overbearing decoration, quite monumental and certainly not picturesque, but it works in context and seems like it's there for a hundred years. Well, if the execution lives up to the visualisations, of course.

No need to quote the pictures though (or 1 would be sufficient)! Thanks Cameron.

The courthouse rendering indeed has no excessive decoration; in fact, it appears to have practically none. I note that much classical revival eschews ornament as if making a statement; for example, the columns deliberately avoid the classical orders. There is nothing demonstrative to the passerby such as, for example, the eagles that might have adorned similar government structures in the 30s. I do hope that traditional architecture's gradual rebirth starts to accept that ornament is actually desirable.

Notice that the front entrance does have a Greek Doric front porch.
