Ministry of Defence - Accra, Ghana - 2005-2010 (All images from Panoramio)





The gatehouse in the second image is a bit kitsch but the ministry building itself is pretty decent.

passable, but the proportions, scale and massing doesn't look quite right. It's more classical facadism than academic classicism if I can put it like that.

The Guardian Angel Cathedral (Portuguese: Catedral Anjo da Guarda) also called Catedral Angelopolitana is located in Santo Ângelo, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, in Brazil. It is the main tourist attraction of the city and the most important temple of the Diocese of Santo Ângelo.

It began to be constructed by in 1929 and its style resembles the temple of St. Michael the Archangel reduction. His style is neoclassical, with arches, columns, frames and ornamentation.

The idea of replacing the second church by the present cathedral began in 1920. The aim was to build a temple that it take as an example the style of the old church of St. Michael the Archangel reduction. In September 1929 the laying of the foundation stone of the work took place. In 1955, they came to an end the work of the facade of the church, under the direction of sculptor and architect Austrian Valentin Von Adamovich. In 1971 the towers were completed.

Actually, proportions, scale and massing are quite right. Only thing bothers me is the ornamentation on the tympanon.

Way too old for this thread imho. 1929 design is still traditional architecture, not new traditional architecture.

The work done in 1929 was very limited. The hard work was done in 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, as seen in the text.

Those sorts of colors are not at all uncommon in Central/near eastern Europe (from Lithuania on down to about Hungary at least).
