Askario, are there any threads on the Russian forum regarding those neo-baroque apartments?

Brauer Hall at Washington University in Saint Louis. Due to be completed in the fall.



I suggesting checking this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washing...in_Saint_Louis

------------------------------------------------

Two new Yale residential colleges that will start construction in the future:




------------------------------------------------



Quote:
Whitman College is one of the six residential colleges at Princeton University, New Jersey, United States. The college is named after Meg Whitman, former CEO of eBay, following her $30 million donation to build the college. The structure was designed by architect Demetri Porphyrios. Construction of Whitman College was completed in Fall of 2007; 2007–08 marked the inaugural academic year for the college.

Whitman is a four-year residential college, open to students of all four academic classes. Its sister two-year college is Forbes College. Although it is possible for any upperclassman to live in Whitman, priority for housing is given to those those upperclassmen who lived in either Whitman or Forbes as underclassmen.

The master of Whitman is Harvey S. Rosen, the John L. Weinberg Professor of Economics and Business Policy. The Dean is Dr. Rebecca Graves-Bayazitoglu, the former Director of Studies for Rockefeller College. The Director of Studies is Dr. Cole M. Crittenden, the former Allston Burr Resident Dean of Currier House at Harvard University. The Director of Student Life is Christina Davis. Josue Lajeunesse, a custodian at Whitman College, is a main subject of the documentary film The Philosopher Kings, and is also an active humanitarian working to make clean water accessible to the people of his home village of Lasource, Haiti.

The residential college comprises seven dormitories: South Baker Hall, Hargadon Hall, Fisher Hall, Lauritzen Hall, Class of 1981 Hall, Murley-Pivirotto Family Tower, and North Hall. The college's dining hall is called Community Hall, so named not for the University community but rather for the eBay community.

One of the more unique aspects of the Whitman College system is its tradition of weekly "College Night" dinners, sponsored by the Whitman College Council and open to Whitman residents only. College Nights involve a number of different themes including Carnival, Halloween, and even a dinner themed after the NBC series "The Office". College Night dinners are popular among Whitman students but have sparked some controversy among the rest of the Princeton community.

Whitman College participates in seasonal intramural athletics, including soccer, volleyball and Ultimate Frisbee. Whitman also organizes a variety of other recreational activities, including a craft circle and the Jane Austen literary society.

Two recently completed townhouses at Chicago's Lincoln Park.


Quote:
These two townhouses were built on spec in Chicago's Lincoln Park, just north of the Loop, and designed by Timothy LeVaughn. Congratulations to him for this excellent work. He is an architect and partner in Melrose Partners. Its web site suggests that the firm does much rehab work in old residential buildings in Chicago, but these two buildings are brand new.

Melrose is a design-build firm, which means the eyebrows of most architects are raised. I'm not sure why, but here is Wikipedia's take on design-build. Apparently the general idea is to cut out the architectural firm as an independent contractor, and use architects hired directly by the building company. Design-build is considered an inroad on the power and prestige of pure architecture, but if it can produce such a high quality of work, then I say bring it on.

The neo baroque apartment blocks in Kazan are just a little bit over the top... No, actually they're tasteless kitsch. (As most of the EE buildings.)

I love the additions in Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as the townhouses in Chicago. Style and proportions are just perfect. You could never tell they're not a hundred years old.

Kitsch? I think they are lovely structures. Far better than any glass cube.

Now, now - I think we should trust Tiaren's judgment to distinguish between tasteful and tasteless kitsch - after all, he's from Germany - the land of chocolate, kitsch and easy women.

I don't agree. I think the buildings have taste. Nationality means nothing, my people built the Empire State building, that doesn't give me anymore of a say in the architectural debate than anyone else.

I don't like this glass tiling. Much prefer those ceramic tiles.

I like it. It feels like the interior represents the Divine Light.

Come on mate, that wasn't necessary by any means.

Everyone's up to his own opinion.

Interesting thread. This looks quite authentic, but some examples here aren't really convincing.
