I can elaborate but put simply, those apartment buildings are just decorated with motifs and are not traditional or classical architecture in the true sense of the description. Traditional architecture is more than just decorative elements, which should also be used appropriately, mostly in a restrained and mathematical proportionate manner. You must also take into consideration balance, massing, scale, form and with that achieving a sense of harmony. After all, that's why classical architecture in particular is so revered and stood the test of time.

your word is correct i dont enjoy the masked image of alot of these apartments, they are borderline kitsch (though overall they have become much better, and some older ones are pretty good. the examples I showed are not the best, its hard to find good images of good examples), you would be amazed to see that many of the newer ones have interiors with all hand made paintings and frills , on a palace scale. pitty to spend so much money in such way

but, the point of the thread, as far as I know (correct me if im wrong) is to display attempts of recreating traditional architecture, not to exactly show perfect classical buildings

a new hotel in Esfahan, it is still not perfect since the interiors are a bit hectic so I will post the exteriors, its fairly close to a traditional house (it was built as an extension to an old house)

"Atigh Square", Esfahan , was a historical square , which later was destroyed over time, and now, they have rebuilt it from scratch in a slightly new pattern, and they have added stores and a bazar-like ring around it , again, the bazar area is very well executed however the square itself is a bit lacking in character


the project is still ongoing, and many shops have not been opened/sold. The surrounding areas are still being built, and underneath,there is a large car traffic intersection.

the whole area was rundown due to decay, and now they are trying to rebuild it

Previously published but with little info. New pictures also. New studenthome belonging to the catholic church in Warsaw "Akademik Praski". Completed in 2014. What I understod it is not a reconstruction but a completly new classical building.

Looks like it's been there for decades!

PS- British developers could learn a thing or two from Poland... At least how to build proper student accommodation.

Soroush makes my point. I know good classical architecture when I see it and kitsch when I see it. I myself enjoyed seeing what is going on in Iran as I would not otherwise see it elsewhere. I thought some of the ,buildings, though not truly classical, were interesting and attractive. I don't think people like Soroush should be discouraged from his contributions to this thread. Do you?

And what about all the racist swearings all over SSC? I mean you now deleted the last posts but what about the other post from cyaxeres? Why don't the mods punish this? Do I need to get through the Iraqi and Mideast sections and report all this posts? I mean there are a lot. About half a dozen in just 24h. I really don't understand the mods, really. That is why I more and more get annoyed by SSC and start not to visit this site.

Things like "mongolic rats" when talking about turks are quite acceptable here on ssc, the Iraqi section is full of swearings like "turkic bastards"! Noone gets bothered, even the mods in some sections are quite ok with it. Pls take a minute or two and talk to the mods in the Iraqi section or take a look by your self. I am short of time therefore started to search for Germany and Turkey here on SSC, the countries which interest me the most. And I have been quite shocked. This Cyaxeres guy even calls for violence, bloodshell apart from heavy swearings and racial downplayings!!! Why do you tolerate mods in different sections who turn this site partially into a racist shithole? Why are the mods over there not pushed to forbid this ugly language. Not once or twice, not from time to time but a dozen of such posts in just 24h.

Funn that it is not finished yet. Because I really like it the way it is. But then again I prefer simplicity.

The idea of Belgrade is that the urban city core reminiscent of Byzantine Constantinople, positions of Belgrade squares and typography is very similar to Constantinople and the shape closely resembles the Church of Holly Wisdom, but the nice thing about it is that its financed by donations like Sagrada Familia in Barselona so Its not like Megalomania by politics but buy people so It gives it charm of purity, and not because of bad attention, Tnx for comments, I really appreciate what you have given nice comments because sometimes I think I like it just because it is in my city, so I'm used to the church that gives the seal of my city again, Thanks

Now this was the ortodox Church of Holly Wisdom aka Hagia Sophia that is converted in Mosque when Constantinople Fall now Its museum .



And Saint Sava Temple




P.S Politics are for losers , don't hate, I live in country where we all learn by Hard way, live your life, get the know each other, connect and love, Turkish wanted to be funny Balkan way and I understand it because he wanted to be funny by provoking in his head, so Im calling him to visit Belgrade he will be warmly welcomed like everybody else here <3

I find that 'German stuff' too austere and almost Bauhaus in classical form.
