Yes, it looks like Azerbaijan architects are skilful enough to make some architectural details like columns, capitals, reliefs, etc. but have absolutely no ability to properly combine it all into a whole building.

That's such a sad sight...
I should have guessed! That building at Hed_Kandi's pic looked suspiciously better than other Azerbaijan examples from that set.
But for what's happened with it terrible is too mild to describe.

Is it only for me or all those Chinese buildings really look Disneylandish?

Well if there is one thing I've realised from following this particular forum it is that recreating traditional European architecture should be left to the Europeans.

The Azerbaijani's are having a fair go, but with disastrous results, and as another poster pointed out the attempts by the Chinese, though better, appear very 'Disneyland-ish'.

Those villas in Guangzhou look very nice, ornate but not over-the-top. They might not follow classical architecture orthodoxy, but they look as one would expect European architecture to drift in execution in a total foreign environment, which is interesting. The Suzhou development is also good. More new developments in Asia should attempt to reconcile modernism with traditional Asian architecture. They actually combine very well, better in many respects than Western architecture.

An interesting building to be sure. The basic underlying forms are western but the details are eastern. Does the building have a function other than looking nice?

Do you realize that this looks like every god-awful kitsch suburb house built since 1990 in America. This officially takes the forum no lower than it can possibly go.

Come on now. It may not be a great example of traditionalist architecture, but now you're just being overly dramatic. I hope you were just being sarcastic.
