As much as I'm a fan of traditionalist / neo-historist architecture, most of these shown examples look cheap and kitschy. Poor materials and proportions, lack of or simplified details, repetitive designs, random streetgrids, strangely arranged urban space... Nah. I'm disappointed. That's not how it should be done.

Jakriborg in Sweden or Poundbury in England are far better examples how to do new traditional architecture.

most of this stuff is really Disney-esque kitsch. In fact, the only thing I remotely like from the above is the "Place de Toscane" in Val d'Europe.
I would have expected better from the French, as the self-proclaimed purveyors of good taste ;-)

The French ones are definitelly better than the Chinese.

In some pictures it doesn't look that bad, but it is kinda fake. Maybe it will improve after the years.

In North America you see a lot of similar styles of architecture at suburban shopping malls, or hotel chains that have a euphemistic "Suites" or "Inn" at the end of their corporate name. Probably the most "exuberant" examples can be found in pretty much any ski hill in North America. This is a ski hill just north of Toronto:









They look like some kind of Tyrolean nightmare, and I have no idea why they all feel obligated to look like something plucked out of a children's storybook.

Who said it's in this group? I just mentioned it (along with Jakriborg) as better examples for neo-historist / traditionalist architecture, nothing else. Of course it's not Neo-Haussmannian.
