Kinda boring and retro, but I think it could look nice of they use good cladding.

This looks like it would fit in Cleveland.

Well, Tianjin has a certain heritage of western colonial architecture. A lot of it was lost over the years but it seems they'd like to have certain new developments built in a way which would reflect that heritage and blend in with surviving buildings.

While some may consider it fake, I think I like it.

I was specifically referring to the skyscraper. The square is pretty gorgeous but I think a Chinese plaza would be much more beautiful. This Europeanization of cities has gotten insane to the point where parks and plaza are made to look like those in Madrid and Paris. Not good imo.

I think this is great! I read that after the success of Italy Town, Tianjin will not only have this British Zone but also French area and German area.

I know that it might look strange that in China they are renovating, rebuilding and even building new European style buildings. But as was said above that is the heritage. Just like in Latin America towns have Spanish style colonial architecture or in United States for most part you have lots of British style architecture.

I like what Tianjin is doing. They are trying to be different then other towns in China. To preserve and expand their heritage and to bring in tourists. Each Chinese city is distinguishing itself from the other. Makes for diverse city landscape. Unlike in the USA where you can go to many cities and see same British historic architecture, in China you get much more diversity. You not only get new European Architecture, but for example, cities like Xi'an and Suzhou do build buildings in the historical Chinese style.

This building surprises the hell out of me. And I love it! I love old, classic architecture. The great buildings of the world, the ones tourists take pictures in front of, that get preserved over centuries, are classic architecture, not glass-and-steel towers.

The architecture and layout looks cool and unique, perfect for Tianjin's international past. I love how American universities adopted the best of Europe's architecture, be it church-style domes or Mediterranean revival. It's beautiful and grand.

Yeah but those old classic buildings are, how do I say, authentic. They are old, monumental structures. They have worn with age and are considered cultural treasures. This Tianjin project will be considered tacky for the next 100 years till the buildings actually become classic. That's why I prefer modern for a city like Tianjin.

This tower is being built in the former British zone of Tianjin. So they thought it would be a nice feature if they reflected that local history by making it look more British. So it think your argument looses out here as there exists a local connection of some sort to this style. Its not random.

Apart from that if Vienna has Japanese Gardens why shouldn't Chinese cities have the freedom to have European squares if they'd like to.

I see your point. There are plenty of cheaply-designed, feaux-classic architecture buildings in shopping centers and hotels around America. You're right, they do look tacky. But the renderings for this building look decent enough for me to be optimistic. I have seen modern university buildings, or renovated ones in the classic architecture that look good. Check out this thread for new buildings built with traditional architecture: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1022349

Most of them are religious structures but religion should not have a monopoly on great architecture! That thread shows that designing modern buildings with classic architecture is possible with the right vision in charge of the project.
