The only "Gothic" building is the brick reconstruction. The rest of the buildings are merely baroque or classicist in their appearance.

This one building was the example, but I don't know, that was an reconstruction.

Very nice that Thai-Venetian building, by the way.

I think you should make clear in the beginning that Gothic is the style from the middle-ages and that neo-gothic is the name of a movement from the 19th century (and 20th) that tried to revive that style.

So it really comes down to the time it's build. The buildings in the 19th century have a tendency to emphasize on decoration, use materials and techniques that are common in the 19th century and off course have aged less. In the 19th century styles weren't always pure, creative freedom was even allowed to improve the style according to own ideals. There were even mix-ups (eclecticism). But even when a 19th century church perfectly emulates a medieval church it's still neo-gothic, just because of the time it's built in.

The idealization of the middle ages was a product of the romantic era (Jean-Jacques Rousseau started the craze). They saw the natural state of man as perfect, healthy and non-violent. And the middle ages that weren´t spoiled yet by the modern sciences, philosophy and technology (modern->renaissance that is) was to reflect the idyllic state. A time of a harmonious social order and unspoiled nature and true religion (plagues, wars and witch-hunts excluded). Also important is the idea that culture was a integrated entity. So, that means that the style of architectural style is not isolated. It (should) reflect the fundamental ideals of the society it is founded in. What better way to improve society then to built it up according to the right style? In France Eugène Viollet-le-Duc was a big representative of that ideal.
Btw. some people just liked the huge cathedrals, like we do

Keep in mind that in England there is some so called gothic-survival. In England gothic architecture kept being popular throughout renaissance/barok/classicist times. They developed the perpendicular style for example. In the 19th century that movement linked again onto the neo-movement. Technically those buildings don't fit in neither timeframe. Funny piece of history, but only applicable for some cases in England.
A Neo-Gothic building is still a Gothic building, I would say, just not a medieval one. Also, the era of witch-hunting coincides more with the Baroque, historically.

Gothic revival castles in Bavaria (my photos):

Hohenschwangau:



And its more famous neighbour Neuschwanstein. More Romanesque but it has some gothic elements, moreso within:






The tower of Ulm Minster was completed in the 19th century, also...

The town hall (Palazzo Publico) in San Marino. Francesco Azzurri, built 1884-94.

Sort of a miniature Palazzo Vecchio.

This is the gate to the cemetery in Newent, Gloucestershire, UK. Quite a nice provincial example of the Gothic Revival.





The nave of the nearby church of St Anne's, Oxenhall, is also Victorian, though the tower is medieval.

Diblin, Ireland, adjacent to Christ Church Cathedral.



The Ewok Village church in Dublin:

This is the Gothic revival monument at Charing Cross, London...



Marks the site of where an Eleanor cross stood in medieval times, which was destroyed by the Puritans in the 1600s.


The Natural History Museum (Romanesque in detail but broadly speaking part of the Gothic Revival)



This is All Saints, a gothic revival church in Leamington Spa, one of the finest I have seen of the period. Dates to 1842.

Does anyone know of any contemporary examples of gothic/neo-gothic architecture?

There is a thread on this here:

Not much to speak of. The re-created parts of Windsor Castle after the fire are a good example, though, since they are quite original and unlike what was there before, especially the Lantern Lobby.

Some nice examples there. It is a shame though that we, as humans, have advanced in so many ways yet seem to have gone backwards in terms of architectural standard.

Neo-Gothic caught on here in Toronto in Victorian times with unbounded enthusiasm; really it was so wildly popular that for churches at least it seemed to outstrip most other building styles. Early English Gothic was particularly popular here. Here is a smattering of mostly Victorian neo-Gothic structures in Toronto, with a few 20th Century ones thrown in for good measure. I was told recently in another thread by someone from another
part of the world that Toronto's old buildings are all beige and forgettable, so I can only conclude that he does not like neo-Gothic! :


















(above and below) even the Catholic churches here often must have felt the pressure to go English Gothic:

What could be more neo-Gothic than cloisters?

The wealthy old man that built this old Victorian mansion was so excited that he couldn't settle for one style, so jumbled together Scottish Baronial, Norman, 15th Century Gothic, and 20th Century Fox:

Great news, this building including the complete Speicherstadt have been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since yesterday.

Though this building is more neorenaissance than neogothic...
