Palacio Figueroa, Quetzaltenango, Guatemala (1888)

^ ugh, in this case, it would have been preferable to keep within the colour palette of the neighbourhood. Not that baby puke is my favourite colour, but this building looks like a spaceship.

During 1985 Earthquake many buildings in Mexico City fell down only the very well constructed survived, and now the construction regulation is very strict, many buildings have been built since then along Avenida Juarez in the Historic Center of the City.

Meh, not much of an improvement, but at least it's cleaner. Poland usually does a better job in making those dull boxes more bearable.

It supposed to be replaced with a much smaller facility of standard modular design that PKP is implementing in smaller cities to cut costs, so it's a big success that Jarosław still have a real railway station with some unique design, no matter if you like late-modernism or not.
