Except the canals the actual buildings have architectually nothing to do with Venice. I see French renaissance, French baroque, I see a Galeria Vittorio Emanuele II copy, I see neoclassicism, I see northern brick gothic and I see tudor. No Venice.

...Venice?
They've never been to Venice, right?


Nevermind the mishmash of styles and features, and what's right and wrong in the way they are done, I find traditional Chinese architecture beautiful! They don't need to be copying things they see elsewhere in the world!

Exactly! Chinese traditional architecture is so unique and beautiful. They have one of the most influential cultures in the world. It is heartbreaking to see them trying to imitate those French palaces and German villages.

Nice pictures but please there is another part of that forum for those attempts: on Chinese copycat cities. I have thought that our discussion is on new buildings built according traditional styles and not just copied Beijing neighbourhood is wonderful - it is a pity that it has to be built as whole districts of authentic hutongs have been destroyed before the Olympics.

Not necessarily, it depends how one "imitates" and learns from traditions alien to its own. Western classical architecture wouldn't look the way it does, had it not been open to foreign influence (even its very origins are inextricably tied to Egyptian and Persian architecture). Indian architecture played a remarkable role in the development of traditional Chinese architecture, and so on...

But of course, the above example in Dalian really lacks finesse to say the least.

I think that we can consider the Chinese project as a sort of a Las Vegas development.
Like for example "the Venetian" project, which copied some landmarks of Venice such as the St mark's campanile.

Since Dalian is a port city which used to be owned by the Russians, they actually have a couple of authentic Russian style buildings around Zhongshan Square, and a lot of European influenced style buildings from elsewhere. I remember it coming up once on guess the city and most of the people who guessed wrong were guessing various European cities such as Paris, whereas other Chinese cities, people see it and know it's China, so I wouldnt say it's a massive crime to do a "copycat" project in Dalian. The diverse architecture is one of the things that makes the city so cool.

Can this be considered as traditional? I highly doubt it.

We've had consensus to include retro-modern/early modern revival such as Streamline, Art Deco, Expressionism and the likes here. But perhaps it's time to create a new thread for those?!

The Berlin building is quite amazing, it corresponds well with the river Spree, like some cruise ship ready to take the waters!
