Other than the trees, Denver and Urumqi look somewhat similar.

There are a number of buildings across the world that used that same pattern, including the Wrigley Building and NYC City Hall. They are all (including the one in Spain) based on a mosque somewhere. Can anybody help me out with the specifics?

Actually, Chicago is the Paris on the Prairie. The name was attributed to the Windy City after Burnham's Plan of Chicago was drafted in 1909.

Are you trying to equate real buildings with an ice-castle? Surely that's a stretch.

No I am not. St. Paul and Harbin both have winter festivals. That isn't all of the architecture. It is just difficult to find pictures that aren't from flickr.
