Osishkin house, Tel-Aviv:


Not much was added on top of the original building but oh well, it still counts, right?

The Tel Aviv addition is a disgrace to the buidling under it. But it matches to the Bauhaus architecture of the city pretty well, I'd say.

i dissagree. the proportions, geometry and colors all pay homage to the original design without being campy.

Are you serious? Look at it again more carefully:

Ugly modernist investors crap to maximize rental space disfiguring a beautiful old building.

There are several better ways to increase rental space of a building.

Here is a picture I took in Bucharest. In the back is a small building that fits this topic, anyone know the name?

i did look at it again. it's proportions aren't perfect but they do reflect the older structure: it looks like the bottom floor is taller that the two upper floors, just like the old building, the massing blocks of the new portion are close in appearance to those of the older part, and the overall scale of the new addition is much smaller than that of the old building- but not too small. overall the new design isn't perfect or arguably the best for that particular project but when coupled with the other elements that i mentioned in my previous post it is definately a far cry from a "disgrace" as you originally called it.

Actually, most modern additions don't work on historical buildings. They're destroying whole cityscapes/roofscapes with this crap (take Vienna as an example).
They shouldn't do this to the world's architectural heritage.

How about the Ivy tower in Minneapolis?



This is actually a hotel that I believe is about to go out of business, just after building the HUGE addition

A lot of these modern additions to old buildings are very nicely designed in their own right ... they would have been very good stand-alone buildings.
