Do you support a revival of Art Deco & Gothic Styles?

Call it neo-art deco & neo-gothic. Some major projects lately. Neo gothic USC village & at Yale U. too. The Harry Potter-Hogwarts & Gotham City look. How about neo-gothic & neo-art deco skyscrapers? Costs needn't be excessive. Much of the craft work can be automated to save costs with 3D printing etc. Would love to see a neo-deco tower in L.A. The only question I have is the current wrap around windows...can we bring back individual windows? Hard to figure out wrap around windows in a neo gothic. May work in a neo deco. Maybe too much of an eclectic style mish mash? Post modern mish mash had its critics and so may neo gothics & neo decos. But the art deco style especially was so beautiful so an attempt should be made.

Maybe we take architecture too seriously--Have some fun! The seven dwarfs caryatids holding up the animation building at Disney studios comes to mind.
