Anyway, i like ancient Mayan architecture. Do you have any examples of Mayan details in contemporary architecture in Mexico? That could be very cool. You can create a new Mexican/Mayan architectural style with these details, so Mexico could distinguish itself from the rest in a very unique and positive way.

I cluttered it with too many images, and not in Mexico, and yes i think that to myself everyday, and not just with mayan Puuc, but with others Mayan styles , and from other civilizations as well(e.g zapotec)

looks hard to classify, i want to say it looks like the structures from El Tajin with a little bit of Teotihuacano(serepent heads) and Mayan(windows and doorway)
