I like it. It's different and to some degree even original. Hundertwasser anyone?

So did you think that bad taste was limited to the Balkans and Eastern-Europe? Let me welcome you to Norway. This is probably the worst I've ever seen in Norway... Built in 2014 (!), the house/thing is for sale and can be your for a mere 23,000,000 NOK ( $ 2,700,000 / £ 2,200,000 / 2,570,000 € ).



Appropriate use of classical columns




Tastefull interiors


Tasteful bathrooms

First thing my eye is drawn to is the terribly placed AC box actually.

Two words that complement each other seem to be good enough to describe this marvel: luxurious and tasteless.

Very good minimalist with a rich accent the magnificent architecture which accepts Donald Tramp. Something had you mix that you gave it in this thread. This building is a classic modernism with a touch of post modernism and contemporary elegance. Bravo TRUMP !!!

Italian company is building a hospital/hotel/restaurant/super market in the village of Petrovec, near Skopje. I thought that Italians had more style than this crap.

Hey @erbse, look! A brand new - 'neo' Art Deco, it might have classical elements, but you know what, who cares, am I right? It has so many setbacks, it has to be a prime example of Art Deco! Lovely.

Actually they do have more style, but since they are building in an overly oligarchical county, classified like third world, of course they wouldn't care one single bit. I mean the rest of the architecture build in Skopje by non Italians in the past decades, starting from the 90's is pretty much a case of a transition economy. The communist elites from the previous system, now dressed (disguised) in democratic robes, were already ruining every possibility for having a nice and decent looking building. Well you can't blame the guys and girls, they only wanted to fill their pockets, since they have zero understanding of democratic values!
Hugs to the Italians for trying to fit in with this architectural style, which we should call the transition cake.

Zaha Hadid Architects' latest building for NYC. The lower half kinda looks interesting, but the whole thing looks oversized and simply ugly. The setbacks leave gaps that are too big in my opinion. It actually looks like an asian building, not for NYC. All these "revolutionary" studios like Zaha Hadid and BIG have such a bad understanding of context

I like Hadid, BIG and to an extent Calatrava exactly because they relived principles of modernism heyday in the sense of having a universal architectural language that can be used anywhere with minor adjustments. They are/were innovators, they have a healthy dose of architectural arrogance, in the sense they believe their buildings to be good enough to ignore surroundings and stand on their own merits!

Le Corbusier or Oscar Niemeyer would think the same (though their styles are from a different era).

I love the sculptural facade. And that ever so slight outwards curve? Unf.
The arches will be amazing at street level too.

The only reason the proportions might seem off is because they are extending the existing building, which has a pretty big podium.
