Random outlet centers and postmodern nouveau riche kitsch aren't what this thread is thought for...

Still, some interesting developments from Ukraine. Most of them lack an eye for classical proportions though.

"Paulinum Dahlhem" in Berlin completed this summer. Odd balconies and lacks ornament. But nice structures.

The Russians and Eastern Europeans seem to be excelling (with obviously some exceptions) at buildings in traditional styles. Except for the windows in the top level, this looks almost perfect regarding materials, proportion, and historical accuracy for St. Petersburg.

No offense, but it's actually the exact other way around. It's Western countries, especially the UK and US (with some renown traditional architecture schools) but also the Netherlands and Germany that have the most tasteful, classically inspired architects and architecture. Not every project in Eastern Europe is of bad taste (there are indeed some very nice ones, especially faithful reconstructions) but I'd argue most of them are, disregarding classical harmony and conventions completely, as long as there is enough stucco and putti and gold. We had some discussions about this in this and the predecessor thread. In German there is even a word for that kind of architecture: "Russenkitsch" The Kiev examples on this page are a prime example.

Germans tasteful? That`s a novelty....If we in Holland find something grey,boring or bourgeois we say it is "Duits"...

And kitch? Their king Ludwig invented it!

Wonderful inside and out, somehow seems to manage the 'mcmansion' look, perhaps a good adherence to classical proportions?

Every country has good and bad cherrypicked architecture, but Germany generally has good classic and classic revival architecture.

Washington, DC Art-Deco Inspired

In Washington, DC there is a lot of new construction going on. Since many of the new buildings are built by older ones, the new ones often try to imitate older forms. We tend to get a lot of art-deco inspired stuff.

I'm not allowed to post links yet, but if you type in "Clarendon Center" in google image search, you can see an example.

Builds from 1950s-Today that have been renovated to look old?

Does anyone have any examples of buildings that were built in the 50s through today that recently had their facades reconstructed in a more classic style?

I saw the reply on the district of Berlin-Schöneberg and am wondering if it is happening anywhere else. A lot of boxy cement buildings from the 60s and 70s could use this:-)

Palmgracht 1&3

Regarding Palmgracht 1&3 on page 377 of the thread, I like how they were built tilted to look more authentic, though I'm pretty sure they had to be built that way though since the ones next to them are. Pretty sure modern building codes would not allow them to be built that way otherwise:-)

Thanks for posting, I guess but it is truly disgusting. It is actually beyond disgusting that I have no words to describe how horrible it is.
