I attempted to back my choice with pro-tradition authors but it didn't help. It's really terrible to be under such censorship.
Unbelievable but the really positive side to this is that such censorship is an admission of the overall failure of modern architecture

I think the proportions are right, they look right anyway, but that portico...I've never seen anything like it TBH. I mean Doric order columns and then those sheer central piers or whatever you may call them, very odd to say the least. Sorry not doing it for me.

My professors have not even heard of Quinlan Terry, Andrew Skurman, Léon Krier... Completely ignorant in the area.
