Nice, I see this building has an authentic, almost exact replication of the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates in Athens...as mentioned earlier.

Poundbury seems very interesting for a classical revivalist. Must make a visit next time I'm in Old Blighty.

If only more British towns and cities would embrace classical architecture like Poundbury has. London and so many other British towns have been ruined by modernist architecture. It really is a tragedy and I will never understand why it was (and still is) allowed to happen.
There needs to be a new form of architecture which is similarly beautiful and builds upon the past but that is distinctly part of our own time, like Art Nouveau was. That way even the fact that it's old won't be a relevant argument any more. We have to learn to embrace what the past has taught us again. There are millions of fantastic artists and sculptors alive now and it seems as though architecture has forgotten to use them.

Schools which teach traditional architecture also have to make it a focus to create new styles with similar principles, which I'm sure is probably happening but I wouldn't know about it.

^ I think we're slowly getting there. The thing is that classical principles have to be re-learned by new architecture generations, so (r)evolutionary greatness can be derived from that. Just as happened with e.g. Art Nouveau, Expressionism and Art Deco. Also the Bauhaus and other early modernism architects still mastered the classical school, and you immediately recognize that. Their proportions, materials and details are much better than what you get today in >95% of the cases.

Btw, gorgeous examples again Hed Kandi. I'm surprised to see Poundbury building such a bold thing as the pavilion, amazing structure. Definitely the highlight of the town, actually quite a metropolitan structure that'd also suit London. (Maybe they want to inspire such a thing indeed!)

It's new, the previous building was demolished due to structural issues. This building is faithful to its predecessor but with an additional attic level and balustrade.
