Okay, something different. A melding of old traditional local vernaculars with new modernism:

Tianjin, the Colonial Concession districts operate a ban on Chinese architecture (similar areas in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Dalian, Wuhan and Qingdao):

Be warned, high end kitsch - these are the better examples

A few examples of modern art deco skyscrapers. They look nice, but apart from Parkview Square none of them pays attention to detail quite as much as original art deco buildings.

Main Plaza, Frankfurt, Built in 2001, 88 meters, 24 floors

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...rmany_-_01.jpg

Kollhoff Tower, Berlin, Built in 1999, 115 meters, 25 floors

http://images.skyscrapercenter.com/b...-w-cahill3.jpg

https://i.pinimg.com/736x/e3/51/a2/e...latz-brick.jpg

Parkview Square, Singapore, Built in 2002, 144 meters, 24 floors

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...iew_Square.JPG

http://thecoolhunter.net/wp-content/.../atlasbar1.jpg

Lastly a fusion between old and new:
Messeturm, Frankfurt, Built in 1991, 256.5 meters, 54 floors

Materials and context seem good. It appears to use brick (vs. the synthetic stucco seen in some expressions), which is good. OTOH, the cupola reminds me of those on some outlet malls flanking I-95 in U.S. states. The successful marriage of modern development aspirations with classic architecture is really elusive.

I'm not sure why my recent post was deleted, but whoever did owes me an explanation. Anyway, my point stands, whereas those vernacular modern Chinese and now German skyscraper examples aren't appropriate for this thread.

Yeah they deleted my comments from Lost Buildings of the United States when I debated with someone about buildings developed by Trump. I think your Trump photo with your name with be a problem with a HATER moderator.
