Actually almost every small town in the Netherlands has a Chinese restaurant with some Chinese-roof-like decorations. But I can't even consider that to be architecture and since the treatstarter was so enthusiastic about the Frankfurt example that's not what he is looking for. Their awfull anyways, but I actually can't think of good examples.

Despite of that, contemporary Japanese architects like Tadao Ando and Sanaa are very admired. And the minimalism of traditional Japanese architecture was a great inspiration for the modernist movement. Adolf Loos for example

The orientalist movement is a story on it's own, and has some fascinating examples. A bit quirqy also, since they don't seem to understand what the real quality of the asian styles was.

Moroccan architecture can hardly be considered Asian. And Yemeni inspired architecture in Dubai feels about as exotic as German inspired architecture in Sweden.... Think it's starting to be a little to much off topic

Also Moorish style hails from North Africa If I'm not mistaken (please correct me if I'm wrong).

Moorish Revival = One form of the Orientalism in the Art in the 19th Century. North Africa was the subject of the orientalism in this context.

No, he didn't. That was somebody else.

I know, I just posted the one in Breukelen because it is so disproportionally humongous. Actually, it has a much bigger Chinese-like garden (with its own pavillions in a matching style) to boot, but I couldn't find any pictures of that. It's just an oddity :-)

Alright, back to true beauties like the synagogue. I love it

I wouldn’t really count Neo-Byzantine as Asian inspired, considering it is a European style.

The Old-Byzantine style was a Near Eastern style, Anatolia (Asia) was the core area of the Byzantine culture and a most important centers was mostly in Asia (Syria, etc), since the Byzantine culture was the heritage of the Asian Hellenism. So the Neo-Byzantine style is an Asian (Byzantine) inspired European style.

I don't think that because a great deal of the Byzantine Empire was physically in Asia that it makes its architecture Asian or the empire Asian. Culturally, politically, and demographically it was European and their architecture reflected that. However, that's just my opinion and either way I'll enjoy the photos of Neo-Byzantine buildings.
