Those oblique axonometrics are so ugly. I can't imagine why they were so used between the 1970s and the 1980s

Rīga Radio and Television center

Some initial proposed design


Final variant


Click to see the mockup

While the 24 floor TV building was completed in 1987, only the piles for the 27 floor Radio building were built.

Just two weeks back the plan has gone ahead to realize the Radio building. Only to function as a business center.

yeah what a great idea to bulldoze some of NYC's greatest buildings and put up an expressway

I was talking about the proposed buildings themselves. Obviously that would have never been built and obviously I don't advocate tearing down tons of old buildings but I still think the renders are great.

All in all I find such 60ies and 70ies architecture awesome. I wouldn't want for any of it to be built though due to many various reasons, but it would be great to have an open-world computer game with such cities because as a "tourist destination" it would be superb to explore
