The main building depicted is a perfect example of how traditional architecture can still incorporate large windows to provide ample light and views to the interior. There is an ongoing architectural/real estate meme that new buildings simply must have floor-to-ceiling glass for light and views because no one wants small windows. As if there were no middle ground. Gorgeous building.

Wow those Poundbury buildings actually look nice and authentic to me, rather than just incredibly quirky as some of the others do.

I love Poundbury, but unfortunately most of the British forums see it as a laughing stock.

Very interesting approach indeed! Materials alone can do a lot to evolutionise classical architecture and add a new vibrant touch. Very cool.

Though, somehow, to me it looks like it's actually a historical building with an altered facade. So it's a renovation/revitalisation rather than a completely new building. Or is it?


Edit: This article actually proves my observation right. These "glass bricks" supposedly are stronger than concrete. Amazing stuff.

Glasgow traditionally builds in sandstone owing to the availability of carboniferous blonde sandstone locally (and a devastating fire that destroyed much of the city in the 17th century which led to strict building regulations), with red and pink sandstone from places like Dumfries becoming prevalent in the latter 19th century as bulk transportation via the railways made it just as cheap as the local variety. We stopped building in stone in the 20th c and all the quarries in Scotland closed.

The new 'bookend' to the crescent pictured is a bluff carboniferous sandstone from Derbyshire. You can explore Belmont Crescent on Google streetview, link >here<.

Even though it's a rather poor attempt at traditional architecture, I like the building for what it is - if only more modern buildings were as such.
