Instead of posting the stuff he likes now he doesn't post anything at all out of butthurt.

I combined /urban/ and /architecture/ because both generals had quite similiar theme, both were quite unpopular too and couldn't sustain themselves, but I guess people liking /architecture/ don't post at all now.

Tokyo is interesting.

I guess I like it because it looks so mixed-used. It looks like you can step out of any of those buildings and have a cafe or bar very close to your building.
I think that might be Tokyo's secret.
I'm not familiar with the city myself, nor its model for planning, though, so I could be wrong
I also think this height >>53486421 looks better than this >>53486724 height of building. You're closer to the buzz of street-level.

It is quite niche, at least from my personal experience. Maybe not on a superficial level, as naturally most people know architecture and even have preferences when it comes to it, but few ever really take the time to properly think about what the buildings around them really are. It's not a subject many people have a deeper understanding of, which is why I consider it more on the niche side of things.

As for East Asian architecture, I quite like it. Pagodas, temples, castles etc. are all right up my alley, but I only know some of the more famous landmarks, and mainly only in Japan. Such as pic related, the original Japanese skyscraper.

Surely it had a reason. In Norway lots of mistakes were made during the 50's, 60's and 70's in relation to nice architecture, because of the rise of modernism. This building in Oslo for example, one of the very few of its kind in all of Norway, was demolished to make way for a brutalist high-rise. For a brutalist high-rise, it's not bad, but it does upset me that it replaced such a rare beauty. Why they'd decide to put the new building in that location always struck me as weird too, as it's in a very high-class residential area, kind of far from the business-oriented city centre.

The quicker we demolish brutalism and its cousins, the better.
Brutalists set out to offend people. The longer their buildings remain up, the longer their victory.
We should destroy them all. They were never meant to be nice. It is an insult to us to leave them up.

Truly was. Even if they aren't demolished, they'll end up with the shorter end of the stick. Here's a one of its kind in Norway that is still around, but with a lot of its charm lost. You can see its interesting base was replaced by a brutalist... thing. A thing that is also mostly a parking lot on top, unlike the open street it was 100 years ago, and you can also see that the building to the right was replaced. Although that can't really be helped, as it was victim to a failed bombing by the Germans in WW2. Still, wish they'd replaced it with something that would fit more.

It's the best form of housing. It has function of gated community so it's safe as hell. It's has plenty of parking spaces so there's no illegal parking problems (People in western countries won't understand but since SK has high population destiny rate it's a huge problem here) It's well planned so you can get many public service benefits from it. Emergency vehicles have hard time getting into some non-apartment neighborhoods in Seoul because of narrow roads and illegally parked vehicles. Now apartments in your picture are pretty old ones but recently they are well-designed.

if you wanna learn more about our housing culture, here's a great article about it. http://reurbanist.com/2012/09/korean-suburbs-a-great-place-to-live/

They are mostly formed right after the Korean war (60s to 70s). So they're not planned. Roads are narrow, illegally parked vehicles,Electric poles and wires. no paths for pedestrians nor bikers. No private guards so easy target for robbers.

Pic related is good comparison. I know it looks *soulless* but low destiny neighborhood on the right side is filthy and mess (And yes, that's considered low destiny in South Korea)

I can't find very good pictures of it, unfortunately. In Norway we call them "bazaars", not that I quite know why, but I think it's because they typically contained stores and the like inside the arched walls. There were 3 of them in Oslo, largest and finest one being the one demolished there to make way for its brutalist replacement, and the only remaining one being this one, which goes in a circle behind the cathedral.

It is very souless, all those building look too orderly, that's why people dislike commieblocks. Too much of the same is just boring. Of course the other end of the spectrum (like favelas) is just as bad, too much disorder.

Now when you have something like the houses of amsterdam (just an example), where the buildings are about the same height and width but different colors, rooftops windows and even architecture for newest houses, all looks so charming. These building are the same height, color, style and look too uninteresting.

Both of these were example to illustrate my point.

I agree, to an extent. What I mean is variety within order.

I guess they are used to it's not like the entire cities looks like this and every residental is the same, and making different designs for every single one would cost a lot

there are better and more diverse residentals in KR too but they obviously aren't affordable for average people

In >>53497345 the buildings could very well have been at the very least been painted differently. But oh well, better orderly then not.

I love neon signs.
>>
>>53500579
yeah they paint commies in Poland it make them look less shitty

but they weren't originally like that
>>
>>53500667
Neon is beautiful.
The first neon sign came to Norway in 1909, and was unfortunately also one of the last of its kind here. Both back then, and to this day, this single Freia sign remains a huge landmark. Makes you wonder why more didn't come, but I guess Europe in general wasn't prepared. Well, if you look away from Amsterdam, at least.

Yes, what the fuck. Seems like every time I open the London, Manchester, Birmingham, etc, development pages on SSC it's nothing but this shit.

When will we next see an architectural style that doesn't just throw aside ornament and that's actually made in collaboration with artists or by artists themselves?
>>
>>53502364
like what style actually ?
>>
>>53502364
when people get tired of glass rectangles
>>
>>53502677
Pretty sure the public's already tired of glass rectangles, at least in England I see polls all the time and people repeatedly choose the traditional architecture over newer ones.
>>53502664
Well I don't know because it hasn't been made yet but something like Art Nouveau (no, not exactly that) needs to emerge again.
>>
>>53502664
Maybe neo-classicism is a good example
>>
>>53502364
It kind of feels like we've run out of options when it comes to styles. Art Nouveau, as you mention, is probably the last classical one that wasn't also a revivalist one.
>>
>>53502677
I want more glass rectangles :D
>>
>>53502983
How do you run out of artistic styles to draw upon? And even if that were true why not then draw from the past as we have done for thousands of years rather than be arrogant enough to assume that what we're doing now is inherently better than them despite not at all being in accord with the public's taste and invariably lasting nowhere near as long as the classical buildings looked?

But even then there are surely still good enough creative minds out there to create the next Art Nouveau if given the chance?

Contemporary Dutch architecture is sometimes pretty good
>>
>>53503127
I'm just saying that it feels like the options are limited, without looking completely absurd. Revivalist movements arose partially because of this. I'm not saying I like what is being built now any more than what was being built then, but going back in time, it was probably the logical step to take architecture into simpler times. We can only keep it up for so long, though, so who knows what might be next.

Poles consider this church an outstanding example of reneissance architecture...

Sad thing - this is the best Poland even have.

What don't you agree with? Do you find that photo more pleasing than the one you posted underneath?

I don't know. It seems more fitting to its name than our -only- example of renaissance. Worst is that much of it is part of a Gothic castle tower that was there prior to it.

Just want to thank you lads for the great pictures and general threads, especially when you post cyberpunky pictures of Tokyo and other cities. I sometimes contribute with Belgian pictures, but I rarely have enough time to be active here on a daily basis.

Again, thanks lads for keeping the literally only remaining part of /int/ that isn't total autistic shit alive.

whats your opinion on Thai architecture lads

Pretty good. All of Southeast Asia has some good traditional architecture in general.

>>53504097

but anyway they could make this polish church more sophisticated and don't base it on some basic fucking shapes because basic fucking shapes looks shit in traditional architecture

also all the fucking old churches in poland look the same they all are out of red brick

At least it's in style with the actual medieval building in the back here, but still. I don't really mind it, but it's pretty much the only thing the Danes bothered to build here during the renaissance.

As for your building, it looks alright, but it's as if it's not meant to have that colour. White and yellow is something I'd expect on traditional Spanish houses, not a large baroque palace.

I don't really fucking find anything fascinating in Polish traditional architecture. It's just European average, nothing really remarkable.
