Considering that the Hipsters were the ones who decided to move to all the old Victorian neighborhoods and restore everything, I beg to differ.

False. Yuppies restore. Hipsters come in like rats, who like the grit and decay, and scavenge the existing conditions. Still, I do give rats some benefit of the doubt for upstarting gentrification. Nevertheless, it's usually warehouses and closed factories, not grand public buildings like the old and classic Penn Station. You now have developers proposing glass boxes cantilevering over their beloved tenements, which hipsters love as "ironic," until priced-out of the neighborhood in a hissyfit.

You're going to have to define "hipster" in a bit more detail. At least around my city, many of the businesses in old restored buildings are run by people who would fit into the hipster stereotyping (young, beards, tats, ect), but you seem to have a lot of disdain for these people and I'd like to know why.

Love the drawing! Looks like it could be a building in Paris!

What I love about most Scandinavian designs is that they look both incredibly beautiful and humble, without the unsavoury and excessive extravagance and luxury you often see on this thread. Regular beautiful homes built for regular people. That's how it should be.

This is more than 100% true for Richmond, where I'm from.

Plus, In some cities, like Chicago, it's the Yuppies who come in and tear down all the beautiful old buildings, so I think he's incredibly misled...

The Proportions on that, especially the arches, are awkward.

The Lia Stave Church in Rendalen in Norway. It was inaugurated in June this year. It is built using the traditional stave technics so it don't only look like a stave church. It just a shame about those awkward looking windows. :/

Apart everything from tarnishing the reputation of an entire generation to ruining beer, they aren't so bad.

You're misled because you have never provided an example of such in what I assume you're talking about is Lincoln Park. In my hometown of Miami's Lincoln Park equivalent called Buena Vista, yuppies restored many beautiful old mansions, while hipsters do crap like this in adjacent areas.
