I wonder what the architecture is like in Istanbul. Moscow has stunning architecture downtown but awful architecture outside of the center. Buenos Aires is pretty shocking in that the good architecture extends well past Downtown

Well apparently Moscow is going to get a face lift since huge swaths of old commie blocks are going to be forcibly demolished and 1.6 million people resettled, however I have a feeling these new apartments won't be anything to marvel at, and it will become a sea of high rise cookie cutters.
