I don't hate it

I don't hate it, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I agree with KillerZavatar. Other countries architecture like english architecture, French or chinese are built in my country, usually it's used to attract people to come, or place of interest. I would say china did much better in doing this copycat, copycat of european or chinese architecture building in my countries look awful. They look like plastic cakes

well, if well built and people like it I don't find any wrongness
everyone had copied in the past, even Europeans the gothic arch for instance (derived from the arabs)

I'm both amazed and flabbergasted by what I've just seen!
