Whoever wrote this had bad English (surprising for a US company) but it's understandable.


The wireless KOLAH FARANGI building inaugurated, adjacent to the way of Shemiran road by the king Reza Pahlavi in 1304 solar calendar. The Erection of the named building with its other supplements that's been demolished nowadays, had been lasted for 3 years. The first outlook shape of the building, designed like T.The entrance section includes spaces for the one to do official and technical affairs and the communicating section you observe the large spaces allocated for supplying energy. Approximately 10 years later for the necessity of vacancy for installing technical instruments, two homologous ramiform adjoined the terminal sections and the plan would be changed to this current shape.*This building was erected for installing transmitters and the facility of wireless communication on it and the initial communication was done between Tehran and St. Petersburg.*All of the instruments and the technologies were transferred by Russia to Iran. The basic instruments, in this communication indicate to the year 1924 BC. That is about 7 years after Russia Revolution. Construction of this building was done in Iran architectural evolution era and obviously we are witness of evolution of the forms and traditional Iranian architectural values versus exterior architectural ones.*The whole plan of this building is not totally clear. It's said that a Russian architecture had designed the plan. The used executive details in the building and even designing of plan and outlook feature of that refers to existence of designing and modern thoughts that had been executed by traditional experts hands.*This task in some parts caused weakness and in the other parts strength of the building. In about the year 1316 it'd been decided to erect the Radio building adjacent to KOLAHGHERMEZI building. At first, shortwave and long wave transmitter instruments are being made, which had been always posed as a part of a public view. The renovating and the mending of done in this building goes to the years 1384 and 1386 that Behjati wood industry had the responsibility of renovating and mending of wooden parts of this project.*

this project also belongs to central tehran, in nasser xosro street (x is pronounced like the spanish `g`in the word `general`)

central tehran once used to be full of boulevards and streets with this type of architecture, which was the traditional persian style in the second half of the 19th century and the beginnings of the 20th century, sadly, so much has been destroyed, and the authorities of the regime give the least attention to such issues

however, a few buildings here and there are being restored

some of the projects :

^ I wouldn't really consider those as reconstructions, rather call them reparations or renovations. Despite this being not in Europe.
(Perhaps we should create such a thread for reconstructions elsewhere.)

Theatre in Zrenjanin (Serbia)

here one example from Zrenjanin (Serbia). The old boulding of the theatre had just one floor:




Later on, I think that there was fire. The theatre was reconstructed in the same style, but as two floor building (yellow building on the photo).



Now, it has the same height as adjacent old buildings, and fits well.

Nice restauration, but why the red modern wall in the courtyard?
Personally i liked the ruin more. It looked mysterious, an ideal urbex location.

The local initiative "Bürgerinitiative historisches Rathaus" which also initiated the reconstruction of the facade is now collecting money for the seven statues.

I think you are missing the point I was making. It's nothing to do with consistency of style, quite the opposite in fact. This was precicely the point I was making, older buildings can be a mixture of styles (separated) that nevertheless harmonise with each other in a way that a "modernist" will not. If you are meaning a mix of styles within a designated area, i.e. a certain facade, then yes your argument is most certainly valid but I am referring to additions to buildings as an entity in themselves and consequently designed within a certain style with adherents to the rules of that style. These mish-mash of styles jumbled together as you find in some new middle eastern structures, or in Russia sometimes (and elsewhere) are invariably a travesty.

Question - how do they rebuild things like this? Are there architectural plans/drawings left?

There's plenty of photographic records at least. That must count for something.
