I like the Yingquan District City Hall. It don't think the architects were going for a traditionalist style in the first place, but rather something more eclectic and postmodern. So yes, it doesn't meet the criteria of this thread.

At least it's better than Hong Kong's hulking box of a city hall.

Another Balasz's church - Roman Catholic Resurrection Church in Bialystok. Built 1991-1996. Eastern Poland baroque influence.

What i dont understand is why those "architects" try to build something that looks historical while there are tons of old competition desigs that never got realized. Just take a look at those...
Need a new cityhall? try this! :
http://architekturmuseum.ub.tu-berli...9&Daten=182139
Need a parliament Building? try this! :
http://architekturmuseum.ub.tu-berli...79&Daten=83548
Need a something for individual purpose? try this! :
http://architekturmuseum.ub.tu-berli...79&Daten=83418

There are old designs for everything. Europes archives are full of this!!! They just have to open their eyes. And even if it doesnt fit your architect ego to just use the design of somone dead for a long time you could take a look an learn the right proportions an after this do what they did during historicism... combine elements of the classic stiles in a tastefull way! Its not that hard.

^ Couldn't agree more. I always wondered why this is hardly ever done. I mean it's not even a question of copyrights anymore, they're all gone. It's probably just an ego thing. It'd feel like not doing something original to them, huh.

Anyway, there's so many grand designs that definitely need to be build. Perhaps on Mars one day.

I agree with you - it is better to built unbuilt houses, churches etc. The problem is probably with cost of architectural details which should be used and a lack of artisans ( Chinese or Indian manufactured copies kill the traditional craftmanship).
The Resurrection church in Bialystok is a modern copy of a church in former Eastern Poland destroyed by the Soviets - it is longer than real one.

Museum of Romanticism in Opinogóra has built in 2006-2008 unbuilt winner of 1908 contest for the counts Krasinskis manor house. Now it is a part of the museum. The only fault is that it is a simple version of the contest winner.

This is just magnificent. Brilliant. It follows the baroque style but is ultimately a completely unique creation. Great for Poland.

I wish we had a church like this in any of the cities I've lived in O.O

^ Wow, I love that!

We can easily proceed building like that, reinterpreting traditional styles; organically developping them. Just like expressionism, Jugendstil, Art Deco and organic architecture did.

Very similar to some things this German architect's studio does: http://www.weiseundtreuner.de/start.html

Why doesn't some construction company get wit ha few builders, and start manufacturing all kinds of spindles and columns, then we could have a full on revival of some of the best historic styles. Considering how well the old buildings can sell for when they are in good shape, I think it would be a good investment for construction companies, and new urbanist architects.

If they just abandoned the idea of a low ceiling and instead, they made the ceiling high and grandiose like in the good old days, then the building wouldn’t look so fake ... because in most of these cases, that’s what kills the building...

Because otherwise it looks like if they are trying to cover a modern building with a classical façade.
