It's Hala Stulecia (Jahrhunderthalle in German) built in 1913 by Max Berg. At that time it was the biggest building of this kind in the world with a cupola with a diameter of 67 metres. Many famous people visited Hala Stulecia from Adolf Hitler (1937) to Pope John Paul II (1997). Since 2006 is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This impressive building is surrounded by Four Domes Pavilion, Iglica, Pergola, the Multimedia Fountain, the Japanese Garden, the Wrocław Zoo and the Szczytnicki Park. It's a great place that every visitor to Wrocław should see

As in earlier times, if you add something to a classical building, add something that is classical as well (something Gothic can blend really well with Neo-Renaissance actually).
Of course Gothic blends well with Renaissance: we've had 500 years to get used to them being together! But when the first Renaissance buildings popped up in 1500, often attached to previous Gothic buildings, I'm sure that everybody considered this "modern" Renaissance an abomination, just like Brutalism + Neoclassic

If you extend a classic building, you MUST make the extension clearly and immediately recognizeable. This doesn't necessarily mean that you have to add a brutalist or modernist square piece to a Gothic building. But it must have some elements which clearly show that the addition was made in 2015 and not in 1300. Otherwise, the historical piece loses value and it becomes impossible to "read" the history of the building by looking at all its parts and elements.

I'm personally a huge fan of Berlinese "neoclassical": it's very nice and pleasant to see, it's clearly classical-inspired but it's creative and you (usually) can't confuse it with an ancient building.
I think this style or something similar could easily be used for modern additions to ancient buildings

Nice loft but I think it would serve better as a public building of some sort so that more people could enjoy it from the inside rather than just some rich folks. A marketplace perhaps

Looking at those pictures of Poland from 1990 and today all I can say is its amazing what a little capitalism can do for a city. This can also be seen in the former GDR parts of Germany like Berlin and Dresden. Hungary too.

Krzeszów , Poland

Not really a city, but it's a nice example. The church, dating from the 18th century, became a ruin after the war. Now the village has rebuilt it.
