This is as "traditional" as they come--it also literally took a century to build, just like the buildings it's based on.
Washington, D.C.'s National Cathedral
Cornerstone was laid in 1907 and the last finial was finished in 1990.
It also strikes me that churches, temples, and mosques keep turning up in this thread because they are the consummate examples of traditional principles (or well-executed
variations thereon). And yes, a well-designed church or mosque or temple can do exactly what it was designed to do--inspire awe.
