Please can we keep the clichéd and tired modernist vs. classical debate out of this thread please!!!!!! Like it or not, you cannot deny that there is a huge demand for "classical" styles from the general public..

More photos please - big fan of the stuff from NYC!!

If you're talking about the 'Victorian' builds then I definitely agree: give those buildings a few decades and the brickwork will look much better.

It's not postmodernist enough to be that ugly to me. Looks more art deco than pomo.
I dislike the glass strip on its front side, though.

In the broad view, I strongly dislike postmodernism. Ugly postmodernist ones are those that don't really have too many classical parts, and mostly have mismatching cladding and out-of-place shapes within them.


Or those awful towers in Philadelphia

There are some postmodernist gems that I really adore, like the Wells Fargo Center, Minnesota and the Bank of America in Houston.

That's a relatively old building with contemporary architecture style...

Very nice little plaza there. I guess this is some type of hotel/tourism venture, or is it private residences?

The Château Libertador Tower in Buenos Aires, just like the very similar Château Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires and the Château Del Portal in Nordelta, Argentina, on page 41 of this thread are pastiches of neoclassicism and false "examples" with pseudo historic references. Building such as these are out of place in this thread because they do not adhere to the historical architecture styles, which is the topic and purpose of this thread started by Hed Kandi (who is doing such a great job in finding and posting the many new traditional buildings, and other users too. ).

^ Well it was finished back in the year 2000, but it's very nice indeed.

It's the Kollhoff-Tower in Berlin. A very fine example of Neo Art Deco.

Beisheim Center in the front is another nice example of this style (also designed by German architect Hans Kollhoff):

Dictatorship or not the builders in Azerbaijan are doing a great job in Baku. I love all the new buildings with quality design going up there. This is a quote from this thread. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post100234407

Edit: Oh wait. Those were the similar looking ones in the Hague. My bad!
