That the Yoshkar-Ola pics I showed weren't as kitschy as some of the other posters suggested.

I searched for some photos online of Yoshkar-Ola and it doesn't look half as bad as it may look on the original photos you posted. I think it's actually better for smaller Russian cities to get that sort of development as we all know Russian contemporary architecture is usually just fancy commieblocks. With time, I'm convinced projects like that will look much more faithful. That being said, there are still many mistakes made in Yoshkar-Ola so I don't think the project should be labeled as good.

I was very much afraid someone would post Yoshkar-Ola. And now we have it. I feel sort of relieved, the worst has happened.

Actually the answer is not quite correct. Two of them are 1990-2000s reconstructions from the scratch and one of these two is far from faithful because the building had been lost in 18th century and few images of it were left.

We've seen so many bad buildings from all over the world here, I don't think Yoshkar-Ola makes it to Top 10.

A St Petersburg classic from 2000. A bit postmodern but that comes with the time.

I know I sound very pessimistic lately but there is only one thing in the world I hate more than Islam and it is post modernism.

That's cool. That's the palace of tsar Alexey Mikhailovich, restored from a scratch. That's how architecture of Medieval Russia looked like before Peter the Great tilted the country towards European paradigm in politics, culture and whatnot, in the beginning of the 18th century. The palaces were referred to as "terem" before him. The surviving number of them is next to nothing in all of Russia so this''s an extremely important restoration.

A little more SC vernacular (the state was settled from Barbados, hence the vaguely Caribbean style):

Assisted living, Summerville, under construction (source: local newspaper)



Barbadian Way, Mt Pleasant, various (source: Realtor listing )
