This building was actually built, to modified designs, in two places!

Wagner himself used the design to build an opera house in Bayreuth, modified into a more rustic brick design:



Semper would later recycle the design in his famous Semperoper in Dresden:

I don't see much resemblance. Actually, Wagner didn't like Semper's design.

The central block looks very similar.


The design was also reused for the famous Burgtheater in Vienna.

Nonetheless, the original plan remains unrealized.

My street is perpendicular to this cathedral's facade. This would have been an eyesore. They should at least finish the towers.

Yes, and it doesn't seem to me that the current ensemble suffers so much of its incompleteness as a blogger to the link above says.

1901 plans to modify the Washington monument base.

Quote:
Plan for the National Mall – Rendering of the Proposal for the Washington Monument grounds, by the Senate Park Commission, 1901-02.The wide steps, the circular pool, and the terraced gardens were all intended to provide a more dignified base for the monument, while resolving the awkward geometry resulting from its placement off the axis from the White House.
One thing to think about when looking at this image is that the white house is off to the immediate left off frame. It would have lined up very well like the caption says.

My only suggestion would be to incorporate a semi-circular shape into the stairs much like an amphitheater and maybe change the shape of the elliptical pool. The mall is a great place for monuments, but a very sub-par park for the resident of Washington DC. It needs more amenities like that.

I've heard it theorized that it could take as long as 700 years to complete at its current rate. Due to their using traditional medieval Gothic building methods while not having a wealthy monarch to bankroll them, they go decades between periods of construction.

Regardless, the Calatrava design was only one of several the Cathedral has had since construction was began, and (thankfully) if the Cathedral is ever completed it will not be with that design.

Love this thread! Maybe one of the best ones in the forum!


I want to contribute with some Gaudi's undone work:

Franciscan Missions in Tangier


Hunt Pavilion in Garraf


Fountain in Catalonian Square (Barcelona)



Rancagua Chapel (Chile)


Colonia Güell Church (Partially done)

Only was done the crypt (now Unesco World Heritage):
