Here you can see how the Hungarian Parliament Building turned into something quite different from the original plan.

Steindl (the architect) was told to locate the building farther from the Danube and move it 72 meters to the north. Thus the central projection was not in contact with the lower embankment. Due to this modification the broken axis of the original plan could be changed for a straight one and so a regular and straight structure could be built.

He was asked to insert a mezzanine between the ground and the first floors. This step influenced the vertical proportion of the building.

And perhaps the most conspicuous change on the facade concerned the towers and turrets. All towers and turrets were given pointed spires to make the Gothic character more consistent.

original plan:

What a beaut. This could still be built somewhere in a US city, if not New York.

Wow, that's very surprising to see someone proposed something so Orientalist for Budapest. Or am I wrong and Orientalism was in fashion in Budapest too, at that time?

The Hungarian architecture had and have considerable oriental tendencies, because the Hungarian patriotism/nationalism. For example Museum of the Industrial Arts (Lechner Ödön) from this age:

Do unfinished buildings qualify for this thread?
