Still it follows the intention of this thread, I think. As it's clearly inspired by traditional Indian architecture styles.

I agree ,but I still find that big Kazan building kitchy ... not because of the architectural style , but because of some elements like mirror glass we find on modern buildings , the dome and especially that tree which have spoiled the whole thing.

^ Totally agreed. It'd have been awesome if they spare the modern aspects that make it look pseudo-historical in a kitschy way.

When something is built in historical style, there is always a certain amount of kitsch, I think. But at the same time those examples in Kazan belong to the better examples I've seen. They look sterile, because they are brand new, but in a few years, no-one can see the difference. The 19th century was full of neo-styles as well and today in a lot of cases, those neo-buildings are among the most popular to live in in many cities around Europe.

Building historic buildings definitely doesn't have to be kitschy. All you have to do to avoid such thing is to build all visible elements accordingly to the chosen style without any modernism such as in this Kazan building. The structure it self and non visible elements can be done in a modern way.

Personally ,I would add another condition : that these buildings are being built only in historic centers of the cities (if they are built in cities). It would be stupid building a baroque building in some new part of the city.

Sorry, but I don't agree with you. I think that what you describe would be the way to copy a builing, not to build a totally new structure that never existed before. This would be new neo-baroque or new neo-something and I really quite like it.

Why not, a place like Novi Beograd for exemple has already a lot of different styles (and still a lot of space). What would be the problem to have 1 blok in all of Novi Beograd with this kind of architecture (of course with different details to refer to local styles)?

Project of the National Library:

http://antika-plus.ru/eng/sketches/t...-of-tatarstan/

I think it was rejected. Thread in the Russian forum:

Also, this is a flawless archetype of a traditional skyscraper:

The images from Sumatra are breathtaking as well, btw. They seem a bit overlooked now and I think they shouldnt.

The examples from Kazan though just surprised me a bit more (Not that library, because I think it is way over the top), for I could imagine them somewhere in my own neighborhood.

This project of the library is amazing !!!!

Why was it rejected?

I am sure it would bring hundreds of tourist each year just to see that gem, and would bring a very strong historic power to the very center of the town !!

^ Come on, don't fool yourself.

It'd be an impressive neohistoricist building, but no one would travel exclusively for something like this.
