"But I think that is very very fake try to do something that represent another moment of the history.
The worst thing is that some times include this type of architecture, include donít respect the proportions of the original models."

I agree. But if an architect is so good that they can come up with a totally new interpretation of home, it is also possible that an architect can take an existing form and transform it sucessfully, changing proportion etc. After all that is how these forms were first developed, by one design following another.

I know that this is not often the case. Try the book "Patterns of Home" for some approaches to this question. I have not read it all ,but looks like some interesting propositions to spark discussion.
