Well said, wakka12, well said, including your overall comment on the Poundbury development. I must confess, I've been a longterm lover of the vernacular architecture, with old good tradition in craftsmanship, especially when we see in rural areas of our isles. Besides, I will never deviate from Leon Krier's principals. They stand by time!!! I have to mention another name after touching the subject of urban planning, my strong beliefs in the communal gathering of people with various degrees of wealth and in the end a person who is capable to implement good examples of traditional and classical architecture into practice. It is Maurice Culot. Together with Leon Krier, these two guys have a great passion for architecture and places that suitable for harmonious living for its inhabitants. They also have a good heart and soul!!! After reading this book anyone could feel human again

The critcism is totally undeserved, how many other residential estates are built today within any kind of vision or goal of improving quality of life for its residents in suburban areas?That is laudable. Mostly they are just hideous soul destroying places to live,with no regard for how individuals will inhabit these places or the communities will form, and that standard is what contemporary architects should be trying to challenge by offering solutions that might counteract those issues that plague modern suburban development

But most dont really care about it because its not relevant to them, it's not their personal work and its non descript and boring every day stuff , and so understandably they wont have much opinion on it, which is fine... but then they shouldnt care about this poundbury development either. I totally get why an architect maybe wouldnt admire poundybury , but actively shitting on it, is disgraceful behaviour imo, there are so much bigger issues in the world of architecture they should be putting their minds to than a very exceptional small scale residential development in Dorset which in all fairness looks very livable and pleasant with probably more architectural merit than the next 100 biggest modern suburban housing developments in england combined
Of course the British Architectural establishment will hate this development because they still, by and large, worship the Le Corbusier agenda. Of course it does look a bit sterile through lack of landscaping but once the buildings take on a ‘patina’ with age the entire development will look very different and very livable unlike many contemporary examples that do not age well.

I just read in another thread that Budapest had made it city policy to recreate the beautiful city that existed before the war and get rid of the 1950s modern crap. This is encouraging!
Unfortunately there's no such regulation I know of, so something must have been misunderstood.
In fact this weekend Budapest just elected a new mayor whose political side is responsible for example for these terrible glass boxes next to the National Museum of Hungary in the inner city.

Or wanted to build this in the Castle district, on top of the former Army HQ:

The other plan was a "modern" radioantenna-like structure on top of the first two floors, I couldn't find pictures of it, and probably it's better if you never see it. Only the former mayor of the Castle district could stop but this madness by ordering prohibition of change on the building. But he lost the election on Sunday.
So the new leaders are definitely against historical reconstructions.

And in the Buda castle district, a socialist-neobolshevik mayor was elected, and she opposes every reconstruction in the Castle because she thinks it would be Nazism The reconstructions are state protected projects, we are still not sure what the mayors can do against them.

There are some nice projects in Budapest indeed, but those are like drops in the ocean: the city is far-far away from its past beauty. To get an idea how it could look without the destruction of war, communists and brutalism, take a look at the photos in these articles, which are not even mentioning the Royal Palace, or Elizabeth bridge.

Typical of left-wing politicians. Disturbing and very sad stuff. This condemnation for the past forces me to ask how good the preservation laws are in Budapest? What is to stop any of these new district mayors from bulldozing half the city and replacing it with enormous glass and steel skyscrapers, and shoe-boxes with balconies?

Here today its not typical at all to tear down historic buildings, and build new ones instead of them, especially not in the historic centre. There's a general unwritten agreement that modernists and glasscube-lovers can fulfill themselves outside the great boulevards, where it's not affecting the sight of the historical center.
There are some sad examples, but not much, and most of them happened in the pre-1990 communist era. I hope this won't change with the new socialist mayor.
Nevertheless, in many places, preservation laws fail. It's not as bad as in Vienna or some other Western European cities, but still happens. Old buildings won't get destroyed, but ugly reconstructions of roofs, adding new modern floors on the top can unfortunately happen. It could be because many historic buildings are in bad condition, and companies will only renovate them if they can add an attic, or new floors. These buildings aren't honored enough, neither by the mayors nor their owners, many of them are decaying from the inside and the outside (see this, this, or this, those are on the most frequently visited parts of the city ) Where there's a renovation, the ornaments, and the original roof shaping won't get rebuilt either. Still don't understand why the authorities turn their heads away when permitting things like this (I won't post pictures just the links, because it's a sad sight, and also offtopic here):

Here the last two pictures are the most aching. Paris Court is the most beautiful building on the Ferenciek tere, it was renovated inside-outside, but what on earth is that box on the roof?

This one next to the Basilica
https://www.google.hu/maps/@47.50056...2!8i6656?hl=hu

Not even mentioning the hotels on the Pest Danube bank
https://www.google.hu/maps/@47.49788...2!8i6656?hl=hu

And at the Buda bank
https://www.google.hu/maps/@47.49426...2!8i6656?hl=hu


At the end, let there be a positive example:
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showp...postcount=5153

So as I said, there are some state funded show-projects in Budapest, like in the Kossuth square, and the Buda castle reconstructions, but at other places, the cityscape is in many places still unsatisfying. We don't have neither the funds, human resources nor the will to restore every building.

p.s. sorry for offtopic, and btw I'm not an expert of the legal environment, I'm just following the events. Some people in the Budapest cityscape topic could answer your questions more detailed regarding the preservation laws part.

Railway station in the town of Sosnogorsk, Komi region, Russia.

Btw, according to the newspiece it's the world's first prefab railroad station. 95% of the building's modules including the exterior, interior and communications had beeen preassembled at a plant and delivered to the site for a quick assemblage.

I like the building — simple, stark lines and features, pure geometry, except the statues. They look outta place, imo.

They are there, because they where planning to do a reconstruction instead of the modern interpretation. The Statues are some sort of a compromise.
