It is a suggestion still but the builder is very serious. He is swedish (of course since Sundsvall is in Sweden) so I have been able to speak with him. If it is built it will be a milestone in Swedish post war architecture together with Sundebys project in Växjö.

When you say Eastern European I guess you mean Russian. In Poland for instance reconstructions of destroyed buildings are most often very authentic and their "traditionalist" new builds again mostly well designed. In Russia there seems to be a trend of more architects respecting the rules of traditional architecture than previously so that's hopefully a good sign. I don't agree about the U.S., their designs are often the best with regard to detailing, proportion etc - in such a large and varied country there will be bad examples of course but the expertise of many American architects is second to none.

Some examples of these new builds? How many of them are in the sea of modernism and its versions?

Another one from Bath. Not classical but better fitting in than previous modernist high rise. New Apex City Hotel Bath, to be completed 2017.

Historicism is favorite nouveau riche style.

First half of this thread was full of excellent buildings built in US. I really was impressed. I did not expect that. In some cases they put europeans in shame. Especially their colleges and such public structures.

"Loft" (not sure what the English word would be for it) built in traditional Norwegian vernacular style from the middle ages at Sticklestad, Norway. It was completed in 2016 and it is part of a larger project to build a new traditional Norwegian farm from the middle ages that was started in 2007 and it is expected to be done in ten years time.
