Thumbs up for these Japanese ones! That's the way to go.
Inspiring yet grounded new designs, rooted in traditional and regional aesthetics and materials.

Soroush, I think Organic Architecture as we can see it blossom in parts of Central Europe are a good example of what we and the thread opener have in mind here.

If you look at some of the older north african classical buildings like im egypt for example (mostly built by europeans theselves) , you can see the styling is egyptian/norrh african , yet the layout is classically european


Now that happened decades and even centuries ago , but it was "different" and "new" compared to that era in europe,
I think thats what we were to discuss

A new , "classical" branch of architecture. But its hard today because most of the time , it will merge into "modernization" of existing classicalism
It is true that bringing a distinct set of architectural shapes and ornamental patterns from one artistic culture to a very different one (so different that the two cultures feel "exotic" to each other) is one way to make this step forward, but the problem is that this approach has been done to death already, especially in the early 20th century. There's not much new interbreeding with striking new results left to do, I think...

Tesla has designed a new style of solar panels that look like traditional slate roofs:



Perfect for your modern-classical architecture.

Here's a neat page I found online. The first rendering is recognizably both modern and Romanian; others are either straight traditional or are kitsch.

On the other side of Europe, the Danes are giving their Dutch cousins a run for the money in terms of harmonizing traditional principles with a modern twist:





Modernist mansards:



Can't decide if traditional, modern, or "yes please."

I've always felt those dutch and german buildings look really plastic and unexpressive. This is more of what I think we should build from now on, a perfect example from China. Those curved roofs and adjacent crops instantly make you think of China.

Here are a few examples, many from Florida (the birthplace of New Urbanism - which has pioneered this approach). There's obviously a continuum between mainly traditional and mainly modernist interpretations of this approach.











Here's a few projects from outside Florida that capture this approach nicely:

the fourth last picture, the new building of the C&A store is an awefull building and doesnt fit in the existing urban structure. they should have accepted a different design

^ What the heck are you talking about? It's an amazing building and a vast improvement over the situation before in that part of Amsterdam.

Kinda the opposite phenomenon, but here is a modernist interpretation of Denmark's Læsø seaweed-thatch houses:



If you ask me, it's an improvement on the traditional style:

I think the Empire State Building should have included in this list. It is one of the best example of classic architectures.

I agree it's a million times better than what was built there in the 60's or maybe 70's I'm not sure. However, as the design is from RAMSA I would have expected something better but maybe they had to follow a certain brief, who knows?

I just found out that there are a lot of neo-classical buildings being built in Germany, similar to what djbowen posted. I quite like them, they look very modern, yet at the same time classical. What do you think?

Historically accepted proportions with incorporated elements of 1920s, 1930s and 1940s architecture. Also, quite often high quality materials. If there's a perfect recipe for city defining modern architecture, the so-called Berlin style comes pretty damn close. And I'm hardly surprised as it forms a style continuum with the great structures of 1930s and 1940s (regardless of who built them). Look at the Ernst-Reuter-Haus (1940) or the Lancaster House (1942), this kind of monumental and historically inspired architecture can be found anywhere in Germany and prewar eastern Germany (western Poland).
