that may show that city either got stuck in the past or is building an amusement park
And there is nothing wrong with that.

Some European cities are engaged in large scale reconstruction of lost old neighbourhoods though.

And others are in fact building in some retro styles. Berlin has various examples of neo-art-deco. And you know what? There is nothing wrong with that as long as the buildings are well designed.

Those neo-historicist blocks in the White City are in my opinion properly dimensioned and to see some kitsch in them, one has to have a serious kitsch paranoia. I fail to see it. I know modernist buildings that are more elaborate.

I have nothing against historicist architecture. In fact, I do love it! But it has to be done right. Original, tasteful, in the right size and proportions...and Baku does apparenty not ahere to any of that. It's just nouveau riche kitsch, like anywhere else in Asia! A wannabe Paris...

Pedestrian underpasses are usually built when cars take precedence over pedestrians and crossings are designed as traffic hell holes. Its a pity when new neighbourhoods are torn in bits and pieces by roads you can only pass through under- or overpasses.

Are all of those blue roads above that monstrous?

Anyway, urban roads even if they are major arteries should accommodate pedestrians. They managed to do so in the Main station district in Vienna as well which is currently under construction: (the major road in the upper left corner: http://hauptbahnhof-wien.at/de/Servi...et_orthogr.jpg) That multi lane road is one of the most used roads in the entire city and the only underpass is at the main station itself, because there is a big underground transit connector.
