I've never liked postmodernism, but this is actually nice.

China and Japan truly have some grand Postmodern architecture, however as with one of the previous examples from Japan, or post #249 to be precise, sometimes they look way too European.
Those Round Arches look as if they came straight from the Roman Republic. I really, really like the building, it's just that at times it feels like cultural usurpation of foreign identities.
With that being said, I'd love to see a Forbidden City inspired Postmodern building in China, or a Japanese Castle inspired Postmodern Hotel in Japan.

Howsoever, while still drooling at that Japanese Hotel inspired from a Swiss Castle, I sure hope it's landmarked and protected as a valuable piece of Postmodern stuff.
