I haven't been in Rotterdam in years, I should check it out soon. Rotterdam has a pretty interesting combination of 17th century and contemporary architecture (thanks to the extensive bombing in WW2)

They just started with this building in Amsterdam. Some guy bought the top floor for €15 million, kek. Apparently a lot of Chinese/Russians were interested in it as an investment object, but they were outbid in the end.

The park and gardens of the Château of the Dukes of Harcourt were constructed in 1635 by Odet d'Harcourt and expanded upon in 1714 and 1723.

It was during fierce fighting against the British 59th (Staffordshire) Infantry Division on 13–4 August 1944 that the German forces retreated from the town and set fire to the chateau, which had suffered little damage up to that point. The fire destroyed many public archives, a library of nearly 15,000 volumes, and hundreds of family records.

Should Germans be considered anti-European?

Kind of funny isn't it. Construction costs in NYC being 3-4x places like Dubai or China , and then they build these super thin buildings with double-height ceilings and wind break floors.

It's hideous.
It honestly sucks to see countries with a rich and unique culture/history throw away all of that in exchange for gigantic glass structures.

There's nothing wrong with tall buildings -- it's just the boring plainness of it all that makes it hard to look at.
I think the best example of a 'good' East Asian skyscraper would be Taipei 101 -- tall and glassy but still maintaining the culture's architectural style.

I hate it too, we really need more quality skyscrapers soon. At least Hudson Yard is pretty nice, I like its weird angled buildings.

It's not really a proposal, it was just a concept to stir discussion about aesthetics. With 3d printing it would easy to make ornamental modules and make houses more decorative again. Buildings are so sleek and sterile now. Like these for example >>54107877 they're alright but not particularly memorable. Eagle Tower is intentionally overdesigned so I wouldn't necessarily like to see it built as it is, but I would definitely like to see this type of stuff on a supertall. I think stone in general feels more inviting and robust as a material

I would like to see the return of ornaments myself, and while Eagle Tower might be over the top on purpose, it makes me wonder if any Art Deco style ornamentation at all is fitting for modern glass towers. Will be interesting to see how architects expand on this concept in the coming years. I would especially like to see the return of proper crowns and spires.

Maybe more buildings will start to be made from other materials again. This is going up next to Central Park, the design is pretty derivative but resembles the old highrises. Shame it will kinda be overshadowed by Central Park Tower since they're right next to each other
>>
>>54108498

Oh yeah here's how close they are. Some contrast, an old school terra cotta style tower next to a glass one

Very postmodernist. I would like it better if not for that awkward piece on top, but it's something.

Spoiler: People don't hate it because it looks that way. There are a lot of butt-hurt leftists and niggers who think that new skyscrapers/condos/apartments/buildings is somehow contributing to gentrification, since gentrification prices them out its not bad anyway.

Is it bad that id wish that older buildings get demolished just so theres more space for Modernist buildings?

My area has a ton of new apartments that looks like this and i Love it since NYC is quite late to modernist styles and id prefer NYC looking more like Scandinavia.

Yes, fuck off. We don't need any more soul-less cheap boxes. "Modernism" ruined American cities. Thankfully cities have enacted very strict preservation laws.

we have plenty ""neoclassic"" skyscrapers, theres even one with the whole greek temple facade you posted. its interesting but its all kitsch

neoclassic already had its time in history... twice. what would be nice is a new standard of aesthetic, but thats not gonna happen since architecture is individualist now.

Ehh. I think a couple of the towers should have been ~85 metres, but I think their height is otherwise fine. I want to see towers ranging between 120 and 300 metres around Plaza and Postgiro. Barcode was kind of the start for a natural build-up into the real (hopefully) future cluster in the back.

I honestly don't think this tower is that bad.

It's not so tall that it will stand out in the overall skyline, and it's ugly, but the ugliest part is the bottom 2/3rds, which wont be that visible.
>>
>>54126312
Doesn't look too bad when seen like that. It's almost like a normal tower, except it hasn't finished loading or something.

The probem is that it is so much better than 90% of what is around it.

It's larger, but Seattle is more aesthetic.

Cozy,

I'd kill to live in an apartment in an old city centre on the 4th of 5th floor.

I lived in Bristol, pic related, on the fifth floor during my time in student accommodation. Most of the other building were probably around 3 or 4 stories, so I had great views looking out over all the different rooftops.
Having said that, the buildings in Stockholm central are mostly the same height, so you'd never really have a view over the top of them unless you went to the roof.
Still, cozy.


You'd be able to see my old student accommodation block if the damn Radisson wasn't in the way.
