Sorry but most of these are monstrosities. apart from the shape there is little in common with traditional architectural. Some buildings are just meant to stay shorter.

I think that the only skyscrapers that can pull off traditional designs are art-deco, gothic and late-classical styles. Maybe pagoda, too.

NOOOOOOOOO! Luxor is not related to the pyramid of Giza at all except the shape! Its not built with traditional architecture. It has full glass plains on the outside and they took a lot of thinking in this building. It was an engineering marvel when they did this. As of picture 2 the inside is EMPTY! If Giza empty no!! One of the reasons that they build this is because it attracts tourist which it does and it gives an Egyptian taste (only a little) There is really no similar part connecting Luxor and Giza.

LOGIC GUYS!

This one is another perfect example. Not sure what you are thinking Nanomini. A lot of these buildings only have the outer shape similar to old styles of architecture, but its build with today's engineering. Something like I did there, the building is actually not perfectly build with 20s and 30s style and the interior is of course different. But its something that makes people feel like they are build in the 20th or 19th century not with glass cladding and marvels of engineering.

You should know how to spell Taipei. it just takes a little time to change that. Or if you didn't really know that, maybe you need to review geography.
