Newman Center - Lincoln, Nebraska

The interior turned out better than the interior imho. The facade could be better with a greater variety in bricks and fine detailed windows.

"In Europe after the Third Reich etc. etc." -that philosophy is of course absolute nonsense! Every architectural style including modernism could be associated with some kind of tyrannical regime so it simply doesn't "cut the ice". It's an old worn out excuse used by architects who hate traditional architectural styles but in the main totally fail to come up with anything near as good and sustainable

First of all, Europe is not USA or Britain. We have a very wide range of regional traditional stiles, so it doesnt make sense to build in Anglesaxon shaping of classical styles everywhere in Europe. We are not confortable with dening the differences between our nations architectual heritage, actually we are proud of beeing different. So we wont copy a stile and apply it over the whole continent. Second is, that the Anglesaxon Clasicism or Georgian stile for example are of lesser detail than maybee the german wilhelminan eclecticism or baroque etc. So if we build in traditional stiles, we tend to use early modern or in a few cases of private homes early german clasicism just cause it is far less expensive!

This is turning out really good, like it's been standing there for a century and nothing else would belong there! This is what architecture should be able to achieve in such a surrounding.

NEW YORK | 1110 Park Ave. | 209ft | 19 fl | T/O

Meh, I'm little disappointed. The proportions are off, the windows are ugly, and the details are too flat

Agreed. As the base and the buildings to either side demonstrate (particularly the one on the right), the building would have looked better with smaller and more windows.

This is updating traditional style done right.

^ Yeah, postmodern was really brave with its designs sometimes (often borderline-kitsch, but mostly really creative). I think it can go even further in an expressionist / Art-Decoish way. We haven't seen the end of the line yet!

I think "modern classical" will also be about getting used to new window formats. Imho they still match the proportions. Often the problem with new classical buildings are too low ceiling heights, with this example, they are higher than the older ones. It signals dignity.

I love this one - Neo Art Deco in the Ocean Drive fashion!
That would suit Miami Beach perfectly as well. Well, it's built by the Miami-based Torre C&D company anyway.

I'm not sure I would even call it Neo Art Deco. The Miami Art Deco style never really died out. It seems that people in that area just continued to design buildings in that style and still do.

You could be right, but I fear the mid 60s throughout the 70s, often imo rightfully called The Dark Age of Architecture, was pretty much everywhere a time the construction of classical or early modern styles came to a halt or occurred only in microscopic doses. Even though Miami continued to built rather colourful and somewhat googie stuff, still influenced by the Deco fashion.

But yeah, let's just call it (contemporary) Art Deco, it'll hopefully never cease.

Lools like the States has really embraced traditional/classical styles, with particular variations. I had no idea...

Another Robert Stern design, that could be classified as blank Neo Art Deco:

CHICAGO | One Bennett Park | 257m (843ft) | 67 floors | U/C

SSC thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1739435
Completion: 2019
Architects: Robert A. M. Stern Architects (RAMSA)

Construction status early March 2017:

Future new classical towers could need an actual roof or crown though, like Chicago's Park Tower.
