Neo art deco from Brussels from 2009. Replaces 1960s buildings and preserves historic buildings. Creates court yard structure again.

Interestingly the University of Texas, El Paso also has architectural guidelines that mandate that all construction be in Bhutanese style. If it works, it works. Even in Texas.

Design of the Mormon Temple of Rio de Janeiro. The building is based on the city's art déco architecture, which is known as "the Latin-American Capital of Art Déco", with more than 300 buildings in the style. The construction will begin in this year.

^ It looks quite strange with that flat roof, the edges without any tapering, a facade that looks like glued-on...

But not inacurate. Industrial Buildings often lacked a visible roof. What its really suffering of is the lack of a proper cornice.

Yes, regarding the cornice.
No regarding the roofs. Usually industrial buildings had an attica or otherwise profiled roofline, like this Siemens building in Berlin:

Zürich's Baumeisterhaus' roof lacks any contour in comparison, it's like cut off. No "Baumeister" ("master of building/constr.") appeal at all.

It's quite sad to see that even the very simple industrial buildings of the 19th and early 20th century are hardly matched by any of today's new buildings.

Haha, guess it is something indeed. Zürich barely gets any architecture that is comfortable to look at, most new buildings are very sterile and cold boxes. So the city needs to start somewhere.

Precisely.

New inn as part of a monastery complex in the village of Manastir, Macedonia. The construction of the inn was finished in 2016. This photo is from 2015.

erbse, cornice and attica are just different words for the same thing

Not really. "Cornice" usually translates to "Gesims", which has a broader meaning and doesn't mean the same as attica. You could say "roof cornice", but I think that isn't used that often.
