What style of architecture is this?

I hope that this is not a stupid question but i want to know what form of architecture is this in the renderings below,2 are by richard meier and one is by a new architect chad oppenheim, i heard this style to be called new crystalline, crystallism, to clear cubes, and new postmodernism

I would call them Neo-modern. They aren't quite po-mo but they kind of revivals of the 60-70's works of Mies van der Rohe and such but with glass.
