So I've been collecting loads and loads of names, who put the craft of 21st century traditionalist and New Classical Architecture in the spotlight, and who do well at it. :)

Thought it'd be good to have a list for an overview here. Please post additional names (if possible incl. websites and encyclopedic entries)! Of any new classical contemporary architects that you know of or stumble upon.

The most current version of the architects list can be found here:
List of Architects at Wikipedia

The general thread about new classical / new traditionalist architecture is this:
--- New Buildings Built in Traditional Architecture Style ---

Richmond Riverside by Quinlan Terry, built 1987 (Nick Taimitarha)

Dmitry Barhin (Бархин Дмитрий Борисович) - born in 1950, belongs to family of Russian architects. His grandfather, father and uncle all were architects and authors of many notable buildings in Moscow, Minsk, Sevastopol and even Ankara (Turkey).
His son Andrei Barhin (Бархин Андрей Дмитриевич) is architect too and co-author of many of his recent works.

Now he works mainly in neo-classical style, but also sometimes mixes very detailed and good proportioned classical elements with modern elements.

There are some examples of his works:

Photos by Andrei Barhin

Livejournal of Andrei Barhin (on Russian), most of their latest works shown there.

I could make full list of his works with all info and photos, if you think it's suitable for this topic, but it will take some time...

You're right, thanks for pointing out! I didn't add that myself.

@Chimer: Thank you for the addition! That's very heavy, ornate stuff. But that sort of is the Russian way isn't it. ;)

It'd be great if you could create a list of his works. This could be included in a Wiki article about Dmitry Barhin then (is there a Russian one already?). For more pictures, I suggest you use the other thread, as this one here is dedicated to the architects themself and only 1-5 examples of their work. :)

Not all his works are like these; just I chose most interesting pictures from my personal point of view, so blame my taste for these examples :)

There isn't yet any wiki article about him, only about his older relatives - architects.

Most of his neo-classical buildings were already posted there. Some of them don’t really fit in that topic 'cause they combine neo-classical details - columns, sculptures, etc with elements of contemporary architecture - huge glass walls and so on.

^ Thanks, yeah, I was using that a lot already! :) America is amazing in building networks that are on the spot. You'll find something good for about anything.

This firm unites some really well-crafting people, too:
Historical Concepts

And these guys are phenomenal:
Ferguson & Shamamian

Check their projects yourself. They were just voted into the Top 100 Architects of Architectural Digest. For a reason, obviously. :eek:kay:

Well, the "idiot" is right though. Mere link lists aren't allowed at Wikipedia, at least not in such a thematic article. Else we'd have "yellow pages" like articles all around. What I wanted to do is to create a seperate list, that's where we can put it in a table. Perhaps this weekend I'll have some leisure to do it.

Btw, article content at Wikipedia can always be restored via the history. Unless it's copyrighted material that was hard-deleted. This is the New Classical architects list prior to deletion.

As I said, I'll outsource it, so please don't revert again. You might get blocked from editing Wikipedia.
