Let alone that Every and each material and material composition has its own structural capacity and general application.
No. Very simple: among the fundamental principles of architecture, there are no materials involved.

AAMOF, it was. Think about the major advancements in the architecture of antiquity: where they were? Parthenon, Temple of Artemis, Pantheon, Great Pyramid of Giza etc. And Middle Ages: what moved the gothic architecture forward? Name one non-religious gothic building from your memory only. You cannot.

You get it now?!

It's like taking a cake mixture and sculpting it to look like a chicken in order to make chicken. You and people like you think this chicken cake is a true chicken or at least taste like one.

Of course you can do the same but still call it cake, and you've just made it look like a chicken for fun and playfulness. You know this is analogical for what in Architecture?
As it was so nicely said by the great J.W. von Goethe, Architektur ist gefrorene Musik. Deal with it. You can't do anything about it. You are not Goethe.

Truly classical architecture is not applicable in the modern world, unless you want to pray and make a sacrifices to Artemis, Zeus etc. Anyhow, I would gladly look at your selected examples of neo-classical architecture, if you don't mind sharing.

These buildings are actually making me feel ill. Unfortunately a lot of the buildings from where I live could be posted here as well.

@alexandru.mircea
I'm just happy to see the buildings restored and not left to rot. The colour choices might be garish but it looks like the form of the buildings has been left pretty much intact. Much better than these beautiful old buildings meeting the wrecking ball.

^ yeah. Had I not seen the "before" shots I wouldn't have necessarily considered them for this thread. In the first case the difference between the before and after shots is particularly striking, even in such a state of decay the building was more beautiful than after the rennovation.

Normally I prefer a bit picturesque decay here and there in a well taken care of city, but in such cases like that of Detroit I am too happy to know that entire neighbourhoods are going through regeneration.

South Africa.

Residents of this African house set out on their own quest. They are sure to scrutinize this parti-colored facade in search of meaning of life.



Braunschweig, Germany.

This famous iridescent building is a brainchild of James Rizzi, an American artist. My work makes people beam, he once said.



Melbourne.

Despite the fact that Rubik's Cube was a Hungarian invention this puzzle was built in Australia. It's hard co conjecture what's inside those walls. Sure enough, the interior must be on a par with the exterior.



Detroit.

Bubbly cottage - a fantasy affordable for everyone! TIt takes a little paint to create such uplifting decor.



Amsterdam.

This building evokes traditional Dutch roofs in modern architecture. The facade looks like it's been compiled of triangular puzzle pieces and it grabs the attetion of even the most conservative passers-by.
