Well, there are already three buildings I know of that look like Art Deco Revival. 30 Park Place in New York looks like an authentic 1930s skyscraper, and 220 Central Park South is beginning to shape up and look like that. In Philly, the Mormons are building a new building called The Alexander, which also looks like it's from that era. Those are among my favorite buildings completed recently, so it's definitely a trend I'd like to see continue. As for Gothic, I posted yesterday that the redevelopment of the Tribune Tower is the perfect opportunity for a supertall that's a modern variation on Gothic architecture. For that, I wouldn't expect it to be the same materials as Tribune. More like a glass and steel supertall that uses the shapes from Gothic.
