Most of the designs are proposed ones, final designs probably will change.

Seems like it is approved one. If you compare with previous renderings, there are some changes.

Baku has a tradition in Vernacular architecture that goes further back than many other cities.

What is unfortunately not known to many (inluding in this thread), that Baku is an old city with a rich and authentic architectural heritage of different architectural styles spanning different periods. This city was not built recently and from scratch - and as a theme park, unlike other cities previously mentioned and which bear no relation to Baku.

Baku, has a indeed a rich and authentic history of Neoclassical and Art Nouveau architecture dating to the Czarist era during the 19th century and early 20th century (which was the heyday of these architectural styles around the world as well as in Baku) with many examples concentrated in the heart of the city. It is not a crime to build new buildings which completely adhere to historic architecture styles (and are not kitsch pastiches and interpretations of historical styles) especially if such architectural styles have been historically present in a city, which is the case for Baku, unlike other cities previously mentioned.

nevertheless, no other european city copies their past architectural experience. you may see some features in new buildings, you of course can see old-style buildings in historic district built in order not to spoil the view, but you will never see new districts full of 19century-looking buildings!

that may show that city either got stuck in the past or is building an amusement park
