And this is why you should not be the one running the traditional revival thread

I disagree. Especially, Chicago town houses that Hed Kandi shared are magnificent.

More to the point is that it should not be included in this thread. Traditional style? For a very contemporary building I quite like Gehry's Disney Hall in Los Angeles but this one here is just a mess, I'm betting it will date very quickly.

Building Parisian buildings in Baku is like building Chinese temples in London. It is not fitting for the culture. It is aesthetically not satisfying for the culture. There is no escape. Regardless of how much they try, those Parisian buildings will look kitsch, even if they build them out of 500 years old stone blocks because that type of architecture is not the invention of Azerbaijani people.

I believe this example is gonna be right on spot.

China built this town. Can you believe it? It is in China. They copied an Austrian town, even the street pavements. The result is disgusting and it is a huge insult for Chinese people. They have an amazing culture and they don't need to copy other cultures.

Yes, I can actually believe it because thanks to globalization, many Chinese people want to live modern interpretations of Western society they never experienced from their own "culture," most of which was destroyed by the communists in the first place. Why is it an insult, and why would they be "copying" other cultures?

Of course, you should realize people have different tastes. It's the same in the United States or England, if somebody builds a Japanese teahouse in their backyard. BTW, there are Chinese temples and Parisian-style buildings in London, although yes, the former are usually in ethnic enclaves. Still, it's evident to conclude Parisian-style buildings, whether you find them kitsch, are just as international as International Style buildings, whether you find them boring.

A residential sub division in Istanbul, Turkey. I don't like that all houses are the same but I really like the design. It is very Mediterranean/Turkish.
