There's probably a new "town center" style of outdoor mall in every big city in America by now. Here's one in Houston:




And there's probably a new urbanist "row house" style subdivision in every big city in America by now as well. Here's one just steps from the outdoor mall shown above:




Here's a new subdivision in suburban Dallas built to look like a traditional Croatian village:

And it's not just Mormon churches. Here's a Methodist church:



And while custom-built homes have always indulged a variety of traditional styles, the newer ones seem to be even richer in details than ever. The influence of Lord of the Rings seems to be strong.

And let's throw a few new sports stadiums in as well. Some of these may seem like surreal collages of multiple historical styles, but they're a long way from the typical shiny bowls of glass and steel.

It's quite interesting to see these neo-style stadiums. In Europe arena's and stadiums are basically prestige projects to show off modern architecture.

They are prestige projects here in the US too, but they tend to be more populist in their choice of architecture. Most people enjoy these old school style stadiums, however, even here modernist elites do shriek at the sight of them.

That's amazing. Truly Greek revival in 2011. The endurance of classicism.
