This is an extremely ambitious project, and very expensive too I imagine! Good to see a master plan so well thought out and very transparent to the public. A lot of mixed comments in this thread, so will be interesting to see how the reaction is to the completed buildings and continued development in the years it come. - G

We already have a Paris. Why would you do something if you already know what you are doing won't be as good as the original. Will it satisfy you to be the second class, cheaper version of the original thing? This is nothing but a waste of national resources on some cheap arabic utopias.

You are who you are and it is the best version of you. Imitating Madonna won't make you a Madonna but a Lady Gaga.

No dear friend, I am not raging. Please don't get me wrong. Take my words as expostulation from a friend. Those architects are required to do what is expected from them. Their patrons who I believe are Azeris, want such projects to be constructed. As a Turkish architect, I am very proud of the progress Azerbaijan has been making. I just wish the best for Azerbaijan and such kitsch copycat projects are not the best way to go. For example the Flame Towers and the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center are amazing projects!

I don't think they really intended to built a second Paris, do they?
It's a quite unique project and well if it looks a bit like Paris, so be it.

no , this project is solely based on investors and they can choose what to build
the "paris district" only covers a small part of the project
