I think one of the problems with the "first" Moscow building is that the photos do not show a good perspective as they are taken too close to the building. The colours do look a bit garish but if you saw it in real life it might be better than seen here. I like the hotel building very much, not at all kitschy which is unfortunately the case with a lot of new builds in the former USSR.

True, but it's almost impossible to find (or make) better photos, this is old side-street in historical district and it is very narrow...

I'll add just one more photo, may be it helps a little

I have to say Roza Khutor does not look as good as the renders of Gorky Gorod. It has a rather plastic appearance.



It is quoted from the Sochi | Projects and Construction tread, where all the other hotels and sports venues are enlisted.

Quite jealous, Kraut, with all your modernist postwar crap in your own country?

The City Hall of Yingquan District of Fuyang, Anhui province. It sure looks strange among other Chinese buildings. But at least they're trying--I give it an A for effort! Hopefully the money spent on buildings like this will encourage architects to relearn classical architecture and make it easier and cheaper for other clients to build classical buildings.

Wow, that Art Nouveau villa in Moscow does actually look like the real thing! Even the smallest detail looks as if it were designed back in 1900. It truly is in no way inferior to real Art Nouveau buildings. Simply gorgeous!

Yes, the pedimented portico is all wrong. Why can't they simply get hold of some reference books on classical architecture? If you can't do it well, don't do it at all!

My point exactly! Classical architecture is in absolutely no way badly documented... there must be hundreds (thousands?) of books about it...
