But the last one is quite an interesting imitation of Second Empire / Belle Epoque elements.
The definition of "traditional" in this thread seems too loose to me. Is anything that somewhat/vaguely resembles older architectural styles acceptable?

If we have Brandevoort in this thread, Jakriborg and Poundbury should be here, too.

WOW! Looks old and beautiful.

Especially the tiles. You can usually tell if they're new or old, but this looks really old.

That part is pretty great, most of Brandevoort looks a little strange and artificial, though.

I like Jakriborg way better. And Poundbury also seems like a more refined solution of New Urbanism.

From What I understand of the original decoration of classical buildings this colour scheme comes close to what you would hAve seen in the ancient greek and roman cities.
The asian craftsmanship arounfd the original post is awseome. Will be looking at more of that later.
Did you hear the one about Terry Quinlan at Regents park knocking down a building designed by Nash to make way for one of his own contemporary classics?

Guedelon Castle



A French Castle Built of Stone and Dreams
By STEVEN ERLANGER

TREIGNY, France — Maryline Martin, like a lot of little French girls, was besotted with the Middle Ages, with castles and maidens and knights. She worked for Pier 1 Imports for a while, then came back to this part of Burgundy and thought she would grow mushrooms. She worked instead in an agency trying to find work for the jobless, but the fakery and cynicism involved outraged her, she said.

“I decided to do something for them instead, in this very small part of the world,” Ms. Martin said.

So of course she decided to build a replica of a medieval chateau of the mid-13th century, using the techniques of the time: iron tools and no electricity.

In partnership with Michel Guyot, a neighbor who restored the nearby Château de St.-Fargeau, she bought an abandoned red sandstone quarry and the woods around it, which contained the oak trees, clay, sand and water (found, she said, by diviners) that would be needed for construction. The first stone was cut and laid in 1997, and now the shape of the castle is taking form, with its round towers, great hall and ribbed, vaulted arches.

The walls are now high enough that stones are raised using a pulley system driven by a man walking in a large wooden wheel, like a hamster in a treadmill. Plans call for a new wheel soon, in which two men can walk.

The castle, called Guédelon, named after the surrounding forest, is now a self-sustaining concern. There are 67 employees, an annual budget of around $3.25 million and about 315,000 visitors a year, including 80,000 schoolchildren, to this fairly remote site two hours from Paris. The regular entrance fee is 9 euros, and the profitable tavern is leased to a private company.

Nauvoo Temple, Mormon Church

This was a reconstruction of a temple on the same site that was destroyed by fire in 1848. The new temple completed in 2002 has an identical exterior to the original, however the interior is in the style of the era but is a more classical layout in the style of Utah temples.

Brandevoort looks quite interesting, somewhere you would like to explore. Its nothing like Poundbury ; Poundbury looks like an ill-thought out theme park somewhere in the USA, while Brandevoort looks old and established, indeed if you didnt know you would never tell it was recent creation.
