Merely judging by the looks I like this whole project. I have heard however that construction quality might be an issue, ie issues regarding (lack of) central heating or so. I don't know if its true but it would not fit well to the rather high quality look of the facades.

Meeting was OK but the thing is that they ask for prices from almost each brand in Europe,so we as distributors have little chances.

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!
Give me the "kitsch" Parisien style buildings over the stupid Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center anyday. I think it's fantastic that they're building elegant, traditional looking buildings, because so few people these days will even attempt it, and when they do, they get so called modern "architects" criticising them as "kitsch" or "pastiche".

They are not considered kitsch, because they look like Parisian buildings, they are kitsch, because they fail to reach the quality of their role model. They are inferior in every aspect: design, originality, details, proportions, quality of materials... Buildings build in traditional styles can be beautiful, elegant and of a very high standard. These buildings in Baku are not. They are cheap, really bad copies.

What makes them "really bad"? They don't look cheap at all to me. They're MUCH better than all pre-fabricated cheap garbage that's built here in the UK.
