That Gothic building in Russia looks like something straight out of the middle ages. Is that seriously a new construction? If so, well done!

Have to disagree. Way too much artificial aging and the proportions are seriously flawed. It is unfortunately quite the terrible building.

One could ask if you have ever seen a mediaval building...

This thing is pure themepark architecture, even the materials look like coloured cardboard!


Mediaval Castle:

The ethno village Nerezi on the mountain Vodno, near Skopje. This village is suppose to be a touristic attraction. There are approximately 15 houses built in traditional style from various regions of the Republic of Macedonia.

The main purpose of this village is to show the traditional architecture from various regions of my country at one place. There are going to be a restaurants, bars, cafe shops, souvenir shops, different work shops with traditional arts and crafts, hotels and inns, etc.

Nearby there is a monastery from the 14th century, so the tourists who came to see the church and the frescoes now will have place to eat, drink and see traditional architecture. I don't think the idea is that bad.

Nice. It would seem this village is not from the Skopje 2014 project. Good stuff.

St. Paul the Apostle - Dedicated 2013 - Spartanburg, South Carolina

ST. PAUL THE APOSTLE
Spartanburg, South Carolina

The church is located so as to create a plaza in the front and a prominent entrance along East Main Street. As a liturgical building, the exterior plaza will serve as a site for the Easter fire, for outdoor prayer services, and for processions. As an image of the eternal, the church will be constructed out of timeless materials, red brick with limestone accents. Statues of Saints Peter and Paul on the side bays, along with the following quotes from scripture, will greet all those who enter:

Above statue of Peter: And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it. — Matthew 16

Above statue of Paul: The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? — First Corinthians 10

Above the porch is a rose window or wheel surrounded by symbols of the four evangelists, while the façade is crowned by a celtic cross.

The generous narthex is a place of preparation with views into the nave. It will double as a cry room and connects to stairs and bathrooms. Above the narthex is a choir loft with provision for a future organ.

The nave is in the style of a Roman basilica with side aisles defined by Corinthian arcades. Confessionals will be placed near the beginning of the side aisles symbolic of the process of repentance and forgiveness on our journey toward the Eucharist. The interior will focus on the altar as the place of sacrifice and communion. A baldacchino canopy stands prominently over the altar while a prominent tabernacle will indicate the central mystery of faith and reaffirm the building as a Eucharistic house. The longitudinal nave with a vaulted ceiling will exemplify the journey of faith with Stations of the Cross along the side aisles. As the main focus and symbol of heaven, the sanctuary will be raised on steps, framed by a triumphal arch with a solid floor and paneled walls.

The building is to be constructed with reinforced concrete masonry walls infill above a concrete foundation, brick and stone exterior veneer walls, and steel roof structure. The interior materials will be predominantly wood and plaster with tile floors in the nave and marble floors in the sanctuary. Future phases may include a bell tower and transepts to increase seating capacity.
