Sao Paulo, Rio, Bahía: all tropical and into a jungle biome but still they've some european arch. and avenues. In fact, most of southern Brazil have one of the most fake and man made environments in the world.
Shanghai: classy european avenues, yet subtropical climate with hellish summers.
Mendoza: actually located in a desert but lush and very green (man made)
Dhaka: in the middle of tropical jungle, yet still very dusty and with so few trees, so it may confuse someone as if it were in a desert.

Shanghai probably has only one “classy European avenue" and that's it (there are some western architecture elsewhere in the city of course). There is very little European about this typical Chinese city.

Plus, Europe doesn't lack cities with "hellish summers" to begin with.

Seriously do you think that this 'londonesque' cityscape of Shanghai street image or this street image or this street image fix with Miami summers by any means??
southern european summers are way drier and the typical arch. there is much different from that of central and northern european in order to match, in fact, the hot med climate.

The climate of São Paulo is not properly tropical, but subtropical; although, yes, in the most recent years the summers became unusually hot.
Bahia is a state of Brazil, not a city (maybe you mean Salvador, its capital).
