What the hell, I'll jump in too. There is not a thing wrong with those Nobel Row buildings in Moscow. If they were old everyone would say, "isn't it a shame they don't build buildings like this anymore."

Yesterday I dropped in that Khilkov lane to see the building. Well, it's quite allright, I must say. In reality it looks less massive than on pictures. But the funniest thing is that right across the lane there is a monstrous building which represents a fine example of how NOT to build in traditional styles. Here it is (I don't remember if it was posted here before, if not - the better for Moscow ):

Compared with such a neighbour Nobel Row looks even more decent.

You shouldt have quoted St Petersburg. It looks extremely german

Thank you for the information!

One typical example from Rugia Island:

Buildings in this style are still constructed, as these seaside resorts are quite touristy.
Perhaps I'll show some examples later on.

This might be topical. I came across this residential construction company that prefabricates traditional homes with accurate details and millwork. There are quite a few examples of their work.

Philadelphia Pennsylvania LDS Temple - Philadelphia Pennsylvania - 2016

I wish I had better photographs of the exterior. Perhaps closer to the dedication date later this year.....

Quite many new seaside developments on the german baltic sea coast. All in the small bathing towns. This one "Villa Poseidon" is in Binz and was completed 2015.

^ It's barely alright, I consider it to be postmodern rather than New Classical.

I'll show better Neo Resort Architecture examples from the German Baltic coast later on, when I took (or found) some proper photos.

98 Wireless
Bangkok, Thailand
Completion: 2016
Source: http://tinyurl.com/zzfhbr3


'98 Wireless aims to embody the luxe, classic identity of some of the greatest buildings in New York, Paris and London with its Beaux-Arts-influenced archirecture style. Before you enter one of their 77 units, you'll go through the 23-metre high lobby — that scale alone is enough to impress.

Then come the opulent staircases, custom-made chandeliers and water fountains, all employing materials such as Carrara and Calacatta marbles from Italy, white-oak herringbone floors and Portuguese Moleanos limestone.'

Oh come on, if we talk about sculpture (and we shouldn't do it here probably) Moscow has better sculptors working in realistic manner. This is the work of Alexander Bourganov, which I personally consider second worst right after infamous Zurab Tsereteli...

Yeah, it looks quite cheesy, especially up close. If they had gone for bolder forms on the monopteros and detailing, it could be considered some Art Deco revival probably, but well...
