Hi!

So I always wonder do they still built buildings with old fashionable architecture? like those in paris? london? etc

Well if you have any example can you please post it?

Thanks everyone!

Yeah, there's quite a lot of pastiche architecture in the Paris area. I don't really like them though, they look pretentious yet cheap. One of the biggest problems is the materials being used.

^^ Wow those in the Netherlands are awesome! especially the brick ones :cheers:

I don't like those in Paris looks fake there's nothing more like haussmann style? or is impossible to built something exactly the same today?

There is an obvious problem with materials. The buildings you call "haussmanian" were made of stone, not cement like these cheap neo-haussmanian buildings which look like they were made for a Disneyland theme park (ironically, some of these were actually built as a residential area right next to Disneyland Paris). Ironically there are many other forms of - more humble - older architecture in the Paris area which could be reproduced by using cement and who wouldn't look so tacky and out of place.

In the south of France, there is also another form of cheap "neo-provencal" architectural used to built villas. Promoters sometimes bring the style to cities where local architecture used to be very different such as Lyon or . They even build these kind of houses as far north as the city of Nantes (a city which is on the same latitude as Zurich :crazy:)

Ugh those houses are extremely ugly! very american not my style

but why they don't use stone anymore? I know is more expensive but I think is the correct way to built these type of buildings

It's more expensive and there aren't as many quarry and professionals who know how to use them as before where they were common for the expensive buildings.

What a shame here in Medellín we have 2 huge palaces but they are unfinished and I guess we have the same problem there's no many professionals so those buildings can't be finished

Probably the majority of newly built detached and attached homes in the UK are some sort of pastiche style. :eek:hno:
