I like most of it though some examples are perhaps a bit too austere.

i think some of the german projects (especially the last ones) are more of a hint to classicism, they try to bring classical forms and details onto a more minimal/modern template

but the overall language that they have follows a strict classical framework

It appears to me liek someone was trying to apply classical style into modern one but he failed badly. No offense thou. Those buildings (recent ones from Germany) are not that bad but far from any kind of traditional or classical architecture IMHO.

IMO architectural styles develop over time, so I think it's wrong to state that any style with some classical elements is "wrong" (unless it's an obviously kitsch design...). The last German example looks really good. I am not an architect or expert on classical architecture, but I can appreciate the design. It looks like plenty of other people on this forum agree with me (judging by the massive amounts of "likes" that post received), so I guess we can conclude that the design was a success, regardless of whether it abided by strict classical architectural rules or not..

Just my $0,02 .

not sure if this would count, but the building was built in the 60s , in classical style (at that time there were many real classical-qajar type buildings in the city)
some balloon heads wanted to destroy it and build a tower over it but thankfully their progress has been stopped, however no final verdict has been given


Sabet Pasal House , Tajrish area, Tehran

that's worth saving...pretty good for 60s too. I'd say whoever built that was referencing the White House in Washington and it's Renaissance Palladian in style. At least the city could save it and make it a museum, gallery or cultural centre, it suits these purposes. Too good to be kissing the wrecking-ball.

Of course its worth saving ! Tehran has been almost fully destroyed , it would be sin to have this ruined
Its one of the last of its kind in iran, hence for our urban landscape its value is something like what the whole of dresden is/was to germany. Its one of the last classical buildings in tehran.
From a european standpoint its a common site , you guys have so many of them that you actually at times purposefully destroy them
For us the perspective is a bit different

Corrupt management and money driven developers have destroyed all of these places. Imagine all that was left of london was buckingham palace , tower bridge and a few classical buildings here and there amongst 90% 80s buildings

Tehran still has the lovely Greek Orthodox Church of St Mary in classical style.





There was a small but significant Greek community in pre-revolution Iran, mostly traders and those involved in business, like elsewhere in the Middle East, especially Egypt and the Holy Land, mainly Jerusalem. There remains beautiful architectural remnants from these once prosperous communities in all these places. Many of the former residents migrated to the 'new world' especially Australia, but also to France and Canada.

I love it, but this is going to be destroyed in order to build it:

https://www.google.de/maps/@51.50800...!6m1!1e1?hl=en

I find it fairly strange given that the current building seems perfectly fine to me and, whilst it is not the most beautiful construction I've ever seen, it is also in a traditional style, the right materials and a good proportion for its surroundings. It seems like an unnecessary hassle to destroy this and then build the other one. Surely they could have worked around it?
