You aren't wrong.
A little worse for wear, but I appreciate the composition.
I'm assuming that your post is sarcastic, however? In that case, I understand your anti-modernist/contemporary sentiments.
There is a lot to be desired in structures that disregard the elements of the past. Structures like this belong nowhere, to no one people. They aren't indicative of a single region, unless you understand the real particulars of their design.
It would seem that aesthetically, the west has forgotten art noveau, rococo, beaux-arts, art deco, etc. etc. etc.
In reducing so many decorative elements, modernists also reduced some soul.
Such buildings,they reflect the legacy of engineering and industrialization required to make them. But they don't honor aesthetic traditions or spark a real sense of community.
Modern societies don't incentivize beauty, do they? It's about efficiency and globalism, isn't it?
