  1. This is wonderful! Is this postmodernism in architecture?

  2. @Žarko Aćimović So so. It mainly follow the lines of the buildings beside.

  3. I have some old books with engravings illustrating French hotels of the 19th century, they all have floor plans. The lack of plans accompanying current architecture is interesting. I did an online search, and I guess I can find it plans somewhere, but they are not readily evident. I guess it doesn't matter if a building works? Is the only requirement to have an interesting facade?
    I understand the extra work in obtaining plans etc. on the other hand I'm not sure how it is possible to understand the building any other way.
