>When completed, it was the world's tallest marble-clad building, being sheathed entirely with 43,000 slabs of Italian Carrara marble.
>The marble used was thinner than previously attempted in cladding a building; this quickly proved to be a mistake.
>On December 25, 1973, during construction a 350-pound marble slab detached from the façade and penetrated the roof of the nearby Prudential Center.
>In 1985, inspection found numerous cracks and bowing in the marble cladding of the building.
>To alleviate the problem, stainless steel straps were added to hold the marble in place.
>Later, from 1990 to 1992, the entire building was refaced with Mount Airy white granite at an estimated cost of over $80 million.

Depending on how you see it, that could be said for the whole world. Not many modern styles actually reflect the location they're in, and thus I'd say some of the modern architecture in Asia is more true to its roots than elsewhere.

What's the problem with encouraging more biking? And yeah, all cities have bike lanes, although most are really shitty hand-to-hand with traffic ones. Always pretty scary, especially when the markings are fading away as proof of traffic driving where bikers are supposed to be. And only the largest cities have bike rentals, as they're not exactly needed for sub-100k towns.

They steal space from normal people on cars. Biker hipsters often break traffic rules when use public roads and cause traffic accidents.
They annoy pedestrians too.

I'm not saying cathedrals aren't impressive structurally, but to build a whole town of temples like these is quite the feat, and this was even before Gothic cathedrals had made their mark, and while churches were incredibly vulnerable to decay, these could stand for centuries with little to no attention.

Really is the nicest modern pagoda. There are a few more "traditional" styled Asian towers out there, notably the Jin Mao tower and the Petrona towers, which are both worth looking into.

I'm not really sure why compact and dense cities are so loved. There doesn't seem to be any room.

I probably said the skyline is better that's all. HK has a lot more skyscrapers than NYC.

More bikelans -> less cars -> more fluent traffic

When you finally get out of the 50's and realise why modernist urban planing was wrong, please do read up on Braess' and Downs-Thomson paradox for a mathematical proof that wider roads and more lanes =/= better traffic flow.

Interestingly enough, Asian roof ornamentation is the same found on viking ships and later on stave churches. I wonder how this even reached Scandinavia in the first place.

What's the name of that building?

Also, here's the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. The campus features brutalist architectural style, and was built with concrete left over from the interstate highway project. Some of the buildings have flat roofs that are meant to serve as landing pads for hover cars, if they ever become a thing. There are large earth mounds blocking the views to the parking lots to keep students focused on either nature or on the architecture. The stairs are also deliberately made with a slow incline and wide steps to slow people down and make them look around. The benches all curl around themselves to facilitate conversation, but if you look at them on google maps, they look like they spell out "666".

>>53897929
Well, it will be just under 150 years since its groundbreaking once finished, which in ancient times would be nothing. Although of course, for a modern church, that is a while. The reason is simply that it's a church of an incredibly scope, built of difficult materials and with the most intricate design you can imagine. It would have been completed sooner, but work was halted numerous times during the 20th century. The Nidaros Cathedral here originally took 230 years to build, and 100 years to rebuild. Would have taken even longer if not for the whole medieval base still being intact.

That's actually an interesting thought, although I'm not sure who it would benefit. Churches/religious buildings in general were built for higher deities and everything spiritual, so it works despite the costs, but most other types of constructions are mainly for money there and then. Especially nowadays.
