I have much love for this design. I am from San Antonio and I relish the designs of the era from the early ages of skyscraping until the glassy look became popular. I am interested in this design style along with other aspects of early city planning dating back to the Spanish colonization of the Americas.

The main plaza of San Antonio has been re-built according to some of the principles of the Law of the Indies to make it more open and inviting for pedestrians, as an example of another recent interesting city plan in San Antonio.

I hope that this city maintains its European heritage along with its equally important native ethnic influences. San Antonians seem to always have a love for the past.

I've just love those old american buildings!And I feel happy when I see that North America is building old style buildings ,because I don't like those new glasse buildings they look boring.
