These new apartment buildings in Germany have a look of real quality about them both in their design and materials. A far cry from a lot of the absolute cheap looking crap that has been going up in London in recent times, though of course there are some notable exceptions.

Big cities should focus on creating more traditional buildings (and even rebuilds). Big cities such as London are growing rapidly and prices are going up. We see new buildings that are out of proportions. Fortunate we don't have the same idiotic mind in the 60s and 70s to make place for those horrible post war buildings. But instead we are still not rebuilding or trying. Those ugly post war buildings will only be replaced by something made out of glass. Those buildings have not the same beauty as old stylish buildings from the past. It's losing its flair to just become a boring street for officers and not for life.

Kind of the opposite in that the architecture is very authentic Jacobean (for the Desert Southwest), but the "stone" walls are built out of recycled beer bottles!

Here are some interresting buildings with very modern shapes, but with some more traditional aspects:













They seem a bit like a mix between the Hungarian organic architecture and the contemporary neo-classicism of Germany, but with a Swedish twist. I like!

This is successfully translating early modern, Art Deco and Expressionism elements into a contemporary design imho:

Baia del Re, Venice

Venice, Social housing on the North Coast (Baia del Re), 1987-1990, Franco Bortoluzzi

They're the pink houses that can be seen on arrival in Venice by train
They're a mix of postmodernism and traditional Venetian elements: red roof, chimneys, dark green shutters, the gates to the water, stone linings, circular windows... They're untimately inspired by the historical Seamen's popular housings (Case de la Marinarezza), in the last picture.

I really like how this new building is perfectly integrating in the classical neighborhood and still setting its own distinct accent:

Absolutely wonderful! This is an example of the kind of design that should be followed in China today, not those kitschy neo-European builds that are an insult to good design.

Awesome! I thought the earler examples from China were a bit to austere and had a disharmonious placement of windows, but this look really good. Strikingly modern, yet still harmonious and with a connection to tradition. Let's hope this develops into a wider movement like in Germany!

Indeed. Often I see a sort of Stripped Classical East Asian architecture, but with Western modernist elements like oversized gridless windows and barren interiors, almost in a Miesian fashion. Frankly, it looks boorish and pales in comparison to the traditional architecture it's supposed to reference. Western modernism doesn't translate well with classical non-Western architecture, but classical Western architecture does. The Japanese did this very well in the late nineteenth to the first half of the twentieth century. In this case, it's more of a Chinese interpretation of postmodernism with many seemingly pure classical elements, and it looks fantastic...

...until you see parking lot at the front.

In my opinion they managed to add the parking lot in a good way. They could have just made a normal boring parking lot in a corner but they added it as a small courtyard at the front of the building, and that water mirror looks amazing.

I don't know if this counts since it's technically postmodern, but it has such a heavy emphasis on classicism that I thought it could fit here.
