What are the year's of construction for those two? We'd like to keep it within the past 20 years.

Someone should start a campaign for new traditional buildings. Or, at the very least, for a more balanced approach to architecture in universities. In the UK, academia and the architectural institutions are overly dominated by modernists...

It's not just the UK but also the rest of the world except the States.

It seems that just europeans have their problems with that issue. In Switzerland we have amounts of old stuff - but nowadays just a few architects are not total modernists.

In classical revivals, America knows best!

USA, USA!

I'd rather opt for past 30 years, since postmodernism and new traditionalism of the 80s started the trend.

Totally agreed. In Germany, we have the great Stadtbild association for this purpose: http://www.stadtbild-deutschland.org/

It has an amazingly active forum full of traditionalist architecture, reconstructions and beautiful renovations and towns.


For architecture theory, there's the Notre Dame University in Paris that teaches traditional architecture.

But I agree, we need a broader approach towards our architectural roots, esp. in Universities.

Tasteless as compared to what exactly? Some monstrous bit of modernism?

Here in South Florida, my school's architecture program seem to be infested with modernists, though to call South Florida part of the United States is a compliment these days.

Notre Dame is especially important when discussing traditional architecture. They have a fantastic program (though highly expensive and inaccessible to many) that focuses almost (if not entirely) on classical architecture.

I'm not sure why classical architecture is enjoying more of a revival in America, but I'm not complaining.

More like compared to some similar type buildings. The new ones just seem to lack a certain visual appeal. Their forms and surfaces just seem overly flat. Like they were only interested in a brick and stone building with stone arches and that was it, jobs done. No attempt to express themselves.
