Gothic revival with an art-nouveau twist. Fantastic eclectic building!

Something a bit less frilly to suit the tough seafaring types of Cadiz, Andalucia, Spain. All pics mine. No idea of date or architect, I'm afraid.

In my opinion, this particular type of architecture style is the sole element that has brought that quite obvious grandness to all these architecture structures.

Gresham Palace
Budapest







Now housing a Four Seasons Hotel, this splendid example of Secession design was built in 1905-7 by Zsigmond Quittner

This Secession palace aroused both controversy and praise from the moment it was built.
One of Budapest’s most distinctive pieces of architecture, it was commissioned by the London-based Gresham Life Assurance Company from Zsigmond Quittner and the brothers Jozsef and Laszlo Vago, and completed in 1907.

This enormous edifice enjoys an imposing location directly opposite the Chain Bridge. The crumbling façade features characteristic Secession motifs, such as curvilinear forms and organic themes.

The ornately carved window surrounds appear as though they are projecting from the walls, blending seamlessly with the architecture. The bust by Ede Telcs, at the top of the façade, is Sir Thomas Gresham. He was the founder of the Royal Exchange in London and of Gresham Law: “bad money drives out good”.

On the ground floor of the palace there is a T-shaped arcade, covered multi-coloured glazed roof, which is occupied by shops and a restaurant. The entrance to the arcade is marked by a beautiful wrought-iron gate with peacock motifs. Still the original gate, it is widely regarded as one of the most splendid examples of design from the Secession era. Inside the building, the second floor of the Kossuth stairway has a stained-glass window by Miksa Roth, featuring a portrait of Lajos Kossuth.

In 2004 the palace opened as a Four Seasons Hotel, the second in Central Europe, and the first in Hungary.
Visitors can wander in and admire its many splendors.

Helsinki Central railway station




Helsinki Central railway station (Finnish: Helsingin päärautatieasema, Swedish: Helsingfors centralstation) is a widely recognised landmark in central Helsinki, Finland, and the focal point of public transport in the Greater Helsinki area. The station is used by approximately 200,000 passengers per day, making it Finland's most-visited building. It serves as the point of origin for all trains in the local VR commuter rail network, as well as for a large proportion of long-distance trains in Finland. The station also hosts the Rautatientori metro station, which is the busiest station of the Helsinki Metro.
On 7 June 2010, the Helsinki Central railway station was officially renamed Helsingin päärautatieasema-Helsingfors centralstation (Helsinki main railway station, or Helsinki central railway station) in Finnish and Swedish, replacing the previous official name Helsingin rautatieasema-Helsingfors järnvägsstation (Helsinki railway station). The Finnish transport bureau use "Helsinki C" as a shorthand, and there were erroneous news reports that this shorthand would also be taken into official use. The Turku Central railway station was renamed in a similar manner.



Eliel Saarinen

Gottlieb Eliel Saarinen (Finnish pronunciation: [ˈeliel ˈsɑːrinen]) (August 20, 1873 in Rantasalmi, Finland – July 1, 1950 in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, United States) was a Finnish architect who became famous for his art nouveau buildings in the early years of the 20th century. He was the father of Eero Saarinen.

Saarinen was educated in Helsinki at the Helsinki University of Technology. From 1896 to 1905 he worked as a partner with Herman Gesellius and Armas Lindgren at the firm Gesellius, Lindgren, and Saarinen. His first major work with the firm, the Finnish pavilion at the World Fair of 1900, exhibited an extraordinary convergence of stylistic influences: Finnish wooden architecture, the British Gothic Revival, and the Jugendstil. Saarinen's early manner was later christened the Finnish National Romanticism and culminated in the Helsinki Central railway station (designed 1904, constructed 1910-14). Between 1902 and 1912, he was also co-author of the design for the Fennia series, produced by Arabia pottery.
From 1910–15 he worked on the extensive city-planning project of Munksnäs-Haga and later published a book on the subject. In January 1911 he became a consultant in city planning for Reval, Estonia and was invited to Budapest to advise in city development. In 1912, a brochure written by Saarinen about the planning problems of Budapest was published. In April 1913 he received the first place award in an international competition for his plan of Reval. During 1917-18 Saarinen worked on the city-plan for greater Helsinki. He also designed the Finnish markka banknotes introduced in 1922.
After the divorce from his first wife, Mathilde (who then married Herman Gesellius), on March 6, 1904 Saarinen married his second wife, Louise (Loja) Gesellius, a sculptor in Helsinki, and the younger sister of Herman Gesellius. They had a daughter Eva-Lisa (Pipsan) on March 31, 1905 and a son Eero on August 20, 1910.

Constanta's most famous building is Art Nouveau (Cazino) but it's quite dilapidated.

Sagrada Familia Church in Barcelona is mainly Art Nouveau but with some hints of gothic

Oslo, Norway.

How the Norwegian government block was supposed to appear. This is a design by the Norwegian architect Henrik Bull and was drawn around 1900.




Sadly only the first phase of the complex was ever built:

^ Are there any plans to ever complete the Jugendstil government block of Oslo?
Is it even possible in today's cityscape?

The government built this building there instead:


However it was recently bombed in a terrorist attack by Breivik, so there is some uncertainty about what to with the place.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Re..._22.7.2011.jpg

Our directorate for cultural heritage, who got almost dictator-like powers, have demanded that the brutalistic buildings are rebuilt. People in general appears to want to demolish it according to public polls and there is a group who have said that they will work towards getting the original plans for the building completed. But modernistic architects and heritage people, both of which are pro keeping the current building and will no doubt be against building a "fake" traditional building, have so much power her that I doubt it will ever happen. I would have loved to see it though.

Secession Hall, Vienna, 1898

The Vienna Secession Hal building was designed by Joseph Maria Olbrich, an Austrian architect who was a big part of the Art Nouveau movement - I think this was his first project.
