Which is fair enough imo, considering that Amsterdam-Centre is like 80% old warehouses.. I don't like the 1001-night-tier sand temples they put up everywhere in the late 90s. Mosques before that often were existing buildings, like the old warehouse.. And currently they try to make them fit in with the area, by using similar bricks and colors.. But 10-20 years ago they alle looked like pic related..

Bonus points for use of pink and beige tints or emeraldish-green, and more than 1 minaret.

I'm not even a Moroccan ;_;... I was just raised in the west of this country, which means I'm confronted with a relatively large amount of mosques. In my city alone there are 2, and a fresh one under construction that will also do service as a larger 'Islamic centre' where they'll do more than just worship (don't ask me what they do though, I don't involve myself with these people)...

I'm just interested in how they make them look in other European states, if they build them at all.

>>53422196
>What's the acreage with that?

Guessing it's what you see in the pic, but only the gravel.. I think the left-most garage is a neighbor's property, and the grass and shrubs on the right indicate another neighbor, I'm guessing.

>>53422295

It's not as bad looking IRL, but it is rather bland.. I think they built it mostly to not offend the local population (who would likely not have acceped a domed sand-temple), as well as to keep costs down. During construction it was pretty clear that it consists mostly of concrete slabs, though they've put some ornamental mozaik on the outside.

>pic
This is one of the largest (possibly the largest) Churches in my city.. Not quite a French Cathederal, but still.

Note that tower is actually lower than the rest of the Church, as it's never been finished completely and saw quite a few set-backs in its lifetime, among which the 'Beeldenstorm' in 1566 ('statue storm', in which protestants destroyed Catholic churches, icons and statues on a large scale), disrepair and a disaster involving a ship filled with gunpowder exploding (flattening half the city) in 1804, and later the Second World war... It's been restored after, and has services every sunday.

Mostly because Catholics already have (much) more fancy Churches than they can use though.. And Protestant churches tended not to be so fancy, unless they were reformed Catholic churches like: >>53422859

>Our societies are secular, we don't need that kind of buildings indicating religious dominance.

Unfortunately this is not true for all of Europe.. Britain for instance has a literal state-Church, and in the Netherlands all of our laws are prefixed by 'in name of the Monarch, by the grace of god...'

That said, I don't like ugly buildings that stick out either.


>>53423003

Pic is the lonely Dom tower in Utrecht.. Would have been a Cathederal, if it weren't for a tornado bringing down half the building in the 1600s.. As a result the tower has been seperated from the rest of the Chuch, and stood solitary ever since.

>>53423162

Relatively recent Cathederal.. Built in 1895-1930, current seat of the Bishop of Haarlem & Amsterdam.

>Why do they insist on standing out everywhere?
I don't know. The largest mosque in Norway is relatively far from Oslo, but it's placed by the high-way that goes from the airport to the city, which means any tourist driving from the airport to Oslo would most likely have that be the first religious building seen on his way.

There's a very similar one not even 2 miles down the road... Hard to imagine there was once a time in this country (not even all that long ago) when they'd actually need the capacity of 2 of those big churches (by far the largest buildings in area) on a small rural community of maybe 2000 people max..

Today they see large groups of people for weddings, funerals and perhaps Christmas.

Yeah, those 'star fort' style towns were mostly built with artillery defense in mind..That's why they're surrounded by little islands that would have mortars and such placed on them.

>>53424290
>I'm not even quite sure what a pretty modern mosque would look like, to be quite honest with you.

Similar to that Church i'd say.. At least adapted to the surroundings, like this one for instance: >>53421665 which is built very much in the style Amsterdam West is generally made up of.

>pic is QT fortified village/town (was never a city, always a small place)

It was restored to former glory after the 1960s.. In 1851 it officially ceased function as a fortification. Now it's mostly a tourist destination..

The City of Zwolle also grew far far beyond it's original fortifications. The shape of the old centre remains though.

I like how in the old French towns the walls are often still upright.. In old Dutch cities they often tore down the walls to make space for more buildings and/or canals. Just the gates and the old bridges often remain.

Yes, there a lot of star shaped forts and towns in France but I don't many of them I gotta admit, the best I've seen so far is yours >>53424551

Finally, back to catherdrals, churches and basilicas, pic related is the main one in Maasticht, the Basilica of Saint Servatius, and the church with the red tower is the Church of St. John.
There are a few other churches scattered around town, like the Basilica of Our Lady, but these are mainly it.

About 100k euros here. Pile foundation, prestressed concrete floors, sand-lime brick/prefab concrete inner shell, brick outer shell and insulation in between, triple pane windows, tiled roof with insulated sandwich panels below. No floor/wall finishing, bathroom or kitchen.

Memes are usually from industrial towns. They weren't built to appease the eye, but to house workers for convenience.

Berwick upon Tweed is sort of fortified, though. England's most northern town, so practically Scottish I assume.

It's not a bad plan for a town.
Give it a certain amount of room within some walls that eveyrone has to work and live in. So you dont get low density suburbs or anything, as seen in the background of this image.

Pretty much all the Victorian buildings here are red sandstone, in Glasgow at least.

I almost did, 2 years ago in my last high school year a trip to Scotland was planned but the class settled for Ireland instead

It is desu, like 50% of the house prices here are made up of the price of land.

Building your own house on a patch of land isn't really popular here, as it takes a lot of bureaucratic bullshit to get to the point you can start building. It's more popular to buy an old house/farm and renovate it.

Yes. Not to sure about Britain, but in the Netherlands land prices are ridiculous. Mostly because FUCK OFF WE'RE FULL..

Notice that everything is divided into neat little squares, either for buildings, industry or agriculture... If there is even a tiny shred of natural land left in this sattelite pic, it's because humans decided it has to be nature.

16 years of building houses and I have never seen that stuff.
Do you think it is common?

>Do you think it is common?

I had the impression fake or purely ornamental brick facades were pretty common in Kentucky and New York State. (only 2 states I covered quite a bit of ground in)..

Most of your houses are wood, which makes sense because wood is an easy material and you have plenty of it... The pic I posted earlier (>>53428120) should give you an indication of how little forest we have left.
>>
>>53428520
Many houses do have a partial brick facade (not the whole house), but it is real brick with wood and drywall under it and inside the house.
I have never seen the fake sheets of brick, nobody would pay for that shit.

Most of the walls of Carcassonne were re-done in the 19th century, the towers in particular are definitely not medieval. So actually a lot of it is younger than the star fort you replied to

Good evening. Minister, may I put the first question to you? In your plan, 'A Better Britain For Us', you claimed that you would build 88,000 million, billion houses a year in the Greater London area alone. In fact, you've built only three in the last fifteen years. Are you a bit disappointed with this result?
