Old designs of the Carniolan Provincial Mansion - Kranjski deželni dvorec/Krainer Landhaus - in Ljubljana (Slovenia):


After a major earthquake in 1896, the Provincial Parliament decided to built a new Provincial Mansion on place of the old one. Orders were sent to Raimund Jeblinger in Linz, but his project was rejected due to unsuitable both internal and external designs...

My final post on this thread will be devoted to one of the hi-tech projects - WTC 2 which was planned to be constructed near 9/11 Memorial by N.Foster's project. You may completely disagree with me on this point and be against this modern project being placed here, but I believe today it can be called history:

Design for the Southern Building in Washington D.C. inspired by the Singer Building in New York. The design had to be dropped due to Washingtons height restrictions.
