Modern City: Heritage? Will Heritage and beauty make me popular? Please... like me... I'm cool...

We just have to get used to the fact that beauty is a thing of the past, ugly is the new hot!

the bottom of the building consists of exterior walls of an old houses (dating from 1890) in which the comunist have established the Security Directorate and which was destroyed in the Revolution of 1989. In 2003, the Union of Architects in Romania, raised the new building

I don't think BankWest or Rialto count. There are plenty of skyscrapers built beside heritage buildings, I'd like to see buildings actually on top of. I wanted to post another photo of Ernst & Young Plaza in Melbourne cause I think its a really good example, and the pic Nickkkkkk posted a the beginning of the thread is a red x. Couldn't find a really good one though:

I consider this a bad practice; it defaces the charm of historical buildings.

Great thread idea by the way
I'm pretty sure I remember reading that it was which I'd guess explains why the tower seems to fit so well.

They don't really fall into this catagory but by far my two favourite old/new albums are the Reichstag and the British Muesum. Fosters style seems to work very well with old buildings for some reasom.

its really horrible!

the most shameful thing is that it was Romanian Archs Union that did such a disgusting project. its not just that they've ruined a beautiflu building or ruin, but they've also ruined one of the most important urban landscapes of the city!

the same problem with archs unions is in Buenos Aires.

a real shame!

This one is kinda weird:
Waldorf Astoria hotel, Jerusalem (currently U/C):

The the higher structure is completely new and the right one looks like this right now:

It's a historical structure so the entire inner structure was demolished and only the front was left and will be the front of the new building.
