Kazan city has built a building in neo-empire style (or just eclecticism). It's interesting and very massive experiment in neoclassical architecture:



Main construction has already finished, waiting spring to make a park near this building. Building is used for agriculture organizations, strange decision but it's a fact. More photos:










Back side:


Experiments with light:






Construction thread in the Russian section @ SSC

Сonstruction cost is ~ 1 bln roubles (€25 mln | $33 mln).

That tree and the cupola look somewhat disgraceful.


Otherwise it indeed is an impressive result. As much as I'm in love with neohistorism, I just don't know what to think of this building. :dunno: It obviously is quite a bit over the top.

By the by... Are there any interior views? I'd like to see how the exterior proceeds (or doesn't) inside.

I think it is beautiful. Those who are complaining do not understand evolution. Just because the building is neoclassical it doesn't mean it can't evolve. By it's very name Neoclassical architecture is an evolution of Classical... etc. I think this building is a masterpiece and I love the direction in which it is going.
