Another example of collision rather than dialogue, again from Bucharest:

Communist urbanism. Sometimes interesting, sometimes baffling.

I think Singapore presents a few good examples of new and old architecture living side by side.
Scenes of old buildings overshadowed by newer taller ones, giant glass canopies with cool air vents to beat the weather, and galleries with modern annexes that respect the historical integrity of the building.

Niemeyer 1939 design for a hotel in Ouro Preto, the crown jewel of Brazilian colonial towns. Uncompromisingly modern, yet extremely discreet:


Grande Hotel de Ouro Preto

Another hotel in a colonial town, designed in 1951. Different from the one in Ouro Preto, in here we see his bolder structural approach, though it remains well settled given the austerity of the façade, with rigid order that causes resonance between modern concrete technology and old construction methods applied to the historic architecture of the place:




Hotel Tijuco. The roof pitch copies that of the terrain, so as to minimize the visual impact.

Being farther from the historic city centre, Niemeyer also had the chance to be even bolder in his 1951 design for a school, also in diamantina:

There is no room for these two disciplines co exist. One encroaches on the other like a sebaceous cyst.
