Probably it's not for this thread... The administrative building of the public enterprise for water supply in Skopje, Macedonia. It was opened for use few days ago.

Looks great! Especially the pillars carrying...nothing but air (usually a foggy one).
Also, the ventilations all around the object really contribute to the overall profound impression.

Very nice. The detailing is spectacular.

Indeed. There were protests against its demolition, unsuccessful.

It has a tad of Art Nouveau in its florally swinging shapes, but not in details.
Not appropriate for a thread about new classical architecture. Same goes for the kitsch from Skopje, even though most people probably won't notice how it's bad pastiche.

I don't think so. The former building was a rather nondescript functionalist whatever-building.

I don't dislike the original but I think the new one is more interesting and better

The use of natural stone walls does not make a building a traditional design!

^ Well, it has some Frank Llyod Wright-esque signature to it, but not really traditional, classical or even retro-modernist indeed. It's what we could call postmodern "favour utility architecture" (Gefälligkeitsarchitektur, no idea how to properly translate this).

Well... In my defense, being traditional doesn't mean revivalist. The Stern's office is one of the best in improve and expand the traditional canons. This does not mean either being postmodern (and I never wrote that that building was traditional because the stone walls - it's much more than the materials). YOU want a "new 'classical' style". Here is it.

And sorry for my bad english.

Your argument is totally valid. No offense!
It's just that this thread was/is initially thought for new architecture authentically following classical, vernacular and early modern traditions (see post #1).

Quote:
This thread shall only feature examples of recently constructed buildings which adhere to historic architecture styles, with fidelity in design, materials, and/or construction methods.

This thread is NOT for recently constructed buildings which feature pseudo historic references with faux craftsmanship.

That's why your example might be better suited for this other thread:

A new style of classical architecture


Personally I adore most of RAMSA's/Stern's work. Thanks for sharing!
