My daughter's school here in Mexico City is named after him.

If it wasn't for the South European civilizations, some (other) people, would have never known how to design a proper building.

Awesome. I almost like the exposed red brick playing against the decorative work to be uncovered instead of covering it with plain stucco cream colored walls. Germany doesn't seem to do that look. We have lots of buildings that look like that in the US.

in the late 1900s and at the turn of the 20th century, Mexico had a very noticeable German population and it was common to see public signage in both Spanish and German.

The brick does look very good. And in spite of the intent to cover it with stucco, the application/craftsmanship of the alternating rows of half-bricks and full bricks is such that it could be used as the final treatment. The Neues Palais in Potsdam has the brick-forms painted on the flat stucco surface, so the 'look' is not unknown. Obviously to be true to the reconstruction, the surface stucco will be added, but the bricks do show a favorable image.

Strange comment - East & South Asian civilizations also have rich architectural history.

Yeah, but this 'reconstruction' is using elements from the architectural wonders of the South Europeans. They could have used Asiatic elements instead, but they choose to imitate 'colossal' columns (like they always do).
There is nothing strange in my comment it's just a statement of mine, if there wasn't buildings from the classical period this 'colossal' 'palace' wouldn't even had a proper material to copy, or imitate.

^ And your point being? Literally all architecture is both a copy of something that existed before somewhere else and a combination of local/individual treats.

So people didn't build "proper buildings" elsewhere? Don't spread such ignorant bullshit.

Do you by chance know what came before baroque architecture and before renaissance architecture? Gothic architecture. It originated in Northern Europe and was very different from Greek and Roman architecture since heathen Greeks, Romans and their architecture and art was hated and feared in the Middle Ages. Later the gothic style spread also to Southern European countries and they, as you would call it, "imitated" that style. I guess after the fall of Rome they had forgotten how to "design proper buildings"?
Last but not least, long before the Greeks and Romans there were the Babylonians and Egyptians (which influenced Greek architecture and art by the way) and already they knew how to "design proper buildings."

That user is constantly spreading BS and trolls various threads. Don't mind him, it's wasted energy.
