How exactly is this meant to support itself?

This is a really beautifull concept. The only thing they definitely have to change is to seperate the toilettes between the buidings!

Looks just as, if not more cooler than Sagrada Família.

...and sort of disfunctional. Looks okay for a cathedral but not so for a parliament building.

The Proposal for the Reichstag building in Berlin by Friedrich Gösling is amazing.
I actually wished for it to look more Gothic Germanic than Nouveau or Gaudi.
Like the Ulm Minster for instance, with a more Academic than Religious flair, like the Parliament in London, which is Perpendicular and rather Celtic.
Now that would've spoken of actual self respect.

Certainly, but as massive as the Reichstag project. Mostly because the Ulm Minster is an absolutely massive building when it comes to height. It still waits for the Sagrada Familia to finally surpass her in height. Keeping the throne of the tallest church in the world so far.
That's why I think the Reichstag should've been as daring in height (if not going even further). An Asgardian appeal to it?

One would rightfully ask himself/herself, why so much space for such an institution? But maybe other administrative buildings, such as various courts, or public libraries could've been a part of it too? The continent would've gotten another landmark that would've celebrated the Germanic Gothic, a style that I'm just as fond of as of the French Flamboyant, or the English Perpendicular (even tho the Perpendicular was innovated in France I now associate it more with England).

Yep, Francigenum Opus for its 11th century contemporaries.

Gothic only after Giorgio Vasari decided to describe it as the "barbarous style" in the 15th century.
He was very political I'd say and used the term in very bad conotation, because as many others he wanted change (this change and critic was not only architectural).
He went ever further - neglecting it as a style imposed on the Italians, taking them away from their original Roman architecture.

Giorgio Vasari was the first to write down the term Renaissance aswell.

Although Hansen's proposal for a museum on the foothill of the Acropolis is very bold and impressive, I think that such a construction would overshadow the ancient structure and thankfully it wasn't realized.

I agree. It would be OK only if the purpose was to renovate and reuse the Acropolis. But when it is treated like an archaeological area and the goal is to make a museum to protect its findings, it is wrong to make the museum an exhibit itself.
In overall it seems to me that European Neoclassicists were trying to rebuilt Athens based on their personal ideals, not based on Greek culture. Some of these works exhibited megalomania, like the Academy of Athens and its Ionic facade flanked by two gods, with a central monumental staircase leading straight up to it. Of course there are more extreme examples like concepts by Etienne Louis Boulee or Marie-Joseph Peyre.

I don't know if anyone has posted these in this thread.
