    No valid reason that the world should not look like this.

    Pipistrelle Pavillion, built as an architectural exercise by an institute backed by the Prince of Wales. It's fascinating as it shows where some classical architecture derives from http://www.johnsimpsonarchitects.com/pa/Pipistrelle-Pavilion.html

    @RockMan You could always commission an accurate anatomical painting or sculpture to decorate your office, there are still a few artists who are traditionally trained and spend a huge amount of time studying anatomy.
    Finally, watch the Roger Scruton documentary "Why Beauty Matters"

    I'm with the Golden One crowd, let it burn and we can rise from the ashes again.

    I like that very much! Do those animal images encode an actual readable text, like Koran passages or something?

    Most of the time, it's the artist's name and/or description of the animal.

    For instance, "angry lion", or "shrewd fox" but the peacock is the opening of the Koran.

    If this house would not cost $1,000,000+ to build I would have built it a few years ago. Or something similar, maybe a plantation style house, actually.

    It's difficult to afford all the decoration and ornamental touches when people only see property as having value in their own lifespan. Such a building ought to last centuries.
