That taller bit sticking out on the left is really distracting, especially with the square hole.

Some of the Russian stuff is actually legitimate, historically speaking. YMMV on whether traditional Russian architecture is ugly, but here's a thread of precedents. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1810806&page=6


This, though...I am at a loss for words. Japan is supposed to have advanced long beyond the "tacky Western" architecture phase, especially considering that Nagasaki (the city this is in) has one of the largest concentrations of tasteful historic Western architecture in all of Japan.

See the difference? You're surrounded by some of the best classical Western architecture in Japan and you build that turd? Inexcusable.

Makes me wonder - how much of a butthurt had to be inflicted
to stretch these to a precedent of what was posted here before.

[REMOVED]

I apologize. Me and my stupid mouth, I won't diss other people ever again.

I was in the Serbian part of Bosnia and Hercegovina and there was a similar "park" where they had rebuilt traditional houses with nice and clean lakes and bridges and some informations. It was like Disneyland.

This thread shows the worst side of architecture. I have never seen so many architectural failures in my life. Who are the architects of these buildings and where did they study?

There are bad architects, however in many countries you don't need architects to design buildings. There are many other construction related "technicians" who do the job.

The problem about architectures as a job is that some architectures have to have some income for the living. They for sure are not poor but to get more money they will accept all kinds of contracts even those with the most irrational looking. So the real problem dont lie in this particular occupation. I recon that the problem is more complex and it consider the uneducated people. This why the law should be more strict.
For example you cant see the gypsy's houses. [i dont intend to be stereotypical, racist or anything alike] Those houses are usually how they are. Colorful without any esthetic order. What i heard from others and experienced of my own gypsies usually dont go to higher degrees or they usually avoid being educated, so their esthetic consciousness is low so the order/build those kitschy houses. The same is with People in E. Europe and Balkan region. People with scarce knowledge who got more $$$ they are more prone to build something more ekhm 'weird' or paint with more 'brave' colors. Even among my family from countryside i have a really good example 1 house is really eye-hurting pink the other one has non-sense high columns. OF course i dont intend to offend any one and this is not a pattern that it have to go exactly this way, there are always some exceptions. And those are only my observations and no-one have to agree with me.
So this problem i think wont just disappear as long as the government wont get some classes in school adding extra hrs about the fine arts and architecture.

Pretty certain that's Certeze, Romania. Romania in general has some odd architecture.

The first house is awful, but the second one is quite nice.

I don't like those 'stilts', without them the house would look pretty good I'd say.
