St. Mary's Church in Bergen, completed in the late 12th century. A mix between Gothic and Romanesque style. It burned a few times early on after its construction, but it didn't see any significant damage after that until the 19th century, when the left tower collapsed. Otherwise, it's a very much intact medieval church, especially in appearance. It's closely related to the original Lund Cathedral in Sweden.

Here's the concept for the whole area. Don't really know what to say about the taller buildings since they don't have any official design yet, they just started a competition for it. But as a concept it's pretty alright, they're not too tall and there's a decent amount of them so it looks pretty proportionate. The street level between the towers could be better though, since there aren't really any proper city blocks

Forgot the most important one. Nidaros Cathedral, built from the mid 1140 to 1300 on top of the great St Olaf's burial ground, and one of Europe's most famous pilgrim destinations during the middle ages. It partially burned down only 30 years after initial construction, and then got further fucked up throughout history by more fires and even some lightning. Since the plague happened, and poverty followed, it wasn't rebuilt until the 1800's again. The majestic and ornate front wall was the most badly damaged, as in, completely gone for the most part, except for the lowest row of statues and entrance, so the present day one is a lose reconstruction, as little sources from the middle ages exist as far as its appearance was concerned. All that was known is that the wall had a large golden rosette and many statues all over. Inspiration for the reconstruction was mainly sought from English and French Gothic cathedrals, as Norway had deep ties to those countries back then and the cathedral was most likely based on those. But for all we know, the cathedral could historically have been prettier than it is now. It took between 1869 and 1968 to rebuild, with finishing touches going all the way to 2004.

Skylines only look "good" when you have at least 10 or so buildings.

Unlike traditional architecture where if the skyline is dominated only by a single church spire and a few smaller chimneys, it still looks nice. And of course you also have more developed ones like pic related.

Heh.

May the random colour cladding phase come to a swift end.
I think even Modernists, with their ultra-low standard for aesthetics, started getting bored of the same old shit buildings being built everywhere, and so their big innovation was: we'll make the buildings with random colouring.

Why are they still making modernist boxes that could have been made any time over the past 100 years then? And you've completely misinterpreted my post regardless. I wasn't talking about destroying cities when I talked about ignoring history and location, I was talking about purposefully ignoring lessons learnt over thousands of years of architecture and building glassy boxes in locations that aren't suited to them. Being called narrow-minded by a modernist is pretty hilarious though so thanks for that.

Winner of a competition to redesign our second tallest (Postgirobygget). All green n shiiet, with increased height from 110 to 130m. I have mixed feelings about it, especially since even if it's technically taller, the redesign makes it look shorter.

It's being joined by a bunch of other skyscrapers with similar heights. The place will even out. The buildings are pissing off the locals though because it's only increasing value for the ultra rich and blocking the sunlight from getting into central park. As much as I love skyscrapers and dense cities, I am with the poorfags on this one.

Sarona. First a German colony, then an army camp and as of last year an open-air mall with shops and restaurants, after years of construction that included moving entire buildings. The latest in a series of old compounds around the country turned into shopping districts.

Honestly, I'm disappointed. It's not worse than the soulless mall they would have put in if they had permission to tear the old houses down, but everything outside the houses is underwhelming. The streetlights, the footpaths, the gardening, it all looks like the default stuff you'd see in a recently renovated municipal park.

They are building these in Manchester.

Manchester wants to be our second city. But who will it attract when it looks like this?
I remember hearing a news story about some Mediterranean footballer moving to Manchestter to play for Manunited, and his girlfriend, and him, were saying how miserable it is and how offputting the miserableness of it is with regards to moving there.

But then, as I have said before, modernist architecture is about making things which looks like prisons or warehouses, so what do you expect.

Posting city i live close to:

”Örlogsstaden” Karlskrona, The city was founded in 1680 when the Royal Swedish Navy was relocated from the Stockholm area to the Trossö island (picture). The city name means Karl's Crown in honour of King Karl XI of Sweden.

The city has kept its street structure since its foundation. Since the streets all follow a grid pattern the winds can blow freely from the sea right into the heart of the city. Parts of the city (mainly the Naval Port) have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In October 1981 the Whiskey-class Soviet submarine S-363 (called "U137" by the Swedes) ran aground in the archipelago near Sturkö just outside Karlskrona.

The city is positioned at the south east corner of Sweden with excellent connections to the other side of the Baltic Sea. There is a ferry line to Gdynia in Poland (cheap as fug) transporting both goods and passengers.

Why do Asian cities try and make their cities as bright as possible?

>>54029707
It depends on methodology, if you are talking urban, metro, conurbation, etc. By some counts they are definitely 10 million+.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baoding
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanyang,_Henan
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhoukou

I think if you used flexible counting there are probably 10 or more cities that qualify.

none of these 3 cities have real metro of 10 million(desu I never even heard about any of these cities), they can be counted as conurbation at best, and it's just probably because of fucked up Chinese statistics, like they claimed Chongqing is "40 million city" when in fact most of it's area is rural
