Notre Dame University does have an excellent historical architecture program, but many of these structures aren't new.

The church to the left was built 1888.

Yes, and old was demolished a few years ago to make way for new construction.


The old building:

Lovely plan for suburban Rome! But why the heck was it abandoned?

Let me guess... "Too classical" for flashy, edgy modernist planners and politicians?

I'm not saying he's completely wrong about it, but the thing I understood not long ago is that contemporary architecture is much more diverse than "glass and steel boxes", although those are sadly way too common these days. I also agree that some architects say so much bullsh*t to "explain" their horrendous vanity-childs to us "tastelles peasants", but at least I always have a good laugh when reading how "profound and complex" a concrete box is. However, I also must say that some modern buildings are quite beautiful. For example, I think that The Shard is a very elegant building and there are many more beauties built or being built right now (check Kengo Kuma, probably the best architect these days). IMO, we should have a healthy mix of both, some people like traditional, some modern, and some both, and everyone should be offered something for their own taste.

P.S. He really got on my nerves in the last 10 seconds of the video, anyone using the term "libtard" for people they don't agree with is an insecure, petty snowflake, and we don't need those people to try to convince the public to bring back traditional architecture. We'll all just appear as revisionist, backward-looking morons. New traditional architecture for all!
A litmus test for whether a building (modern or traditional) is attractive is to imagine more buildings that are similar in design or style surrounding it. What would the overall impact be? Would it be positive or negative? We all love scenes where there are traditional buildings surrounded by other similar traditional buildings, such as those seen in historic photos. Singular modernist buildings may look good, so long as there is just the one, and all the other traditional buildings surrounding it remain intact. In this instance, the modernist building relies on the traditional architecture surrounding it to be a counterpoint to its modernist design, but as soon as the traditional buildings are removed and replaced by similar modernist buildings, the appeal of the modernist building diminishes.

The old building:

That's what I was afraid of. Because of communism Budapest architecturally survived mostly intact after the war. It would be a shame to lose that all now.
