There used to be many more even many detached/semi-detached, also schools & churches. Loads got cleared away for tower blocks after the US-style monster highways/skyscraper modernist influence.

In Europe, my perception is that each country has a unique style.
Looking to pictures, I never had difficulties to point if the city is italian, french, british or dutch.
The case of Germany is interesting because large cities look more modern than I expected, but the small towns also look distinctively german.

Brazilian cities also have a look which I would not confuse with other country.

However, countries where the cities themselves look distinct from each other, I guess USA or Canada due to the heavy influx of immigrants and colonisation for distinct countries - british, french and, in the case of USA, also spanish.

They both begin with a V but Valledupar is not Andean foothills but Caribbean interior lowlands unlike Villavicencio which is on the transition between Andean foothills and Llanos Tropical Savannah & northern South America's cowboy culture.

Villavicencio, Meta State, gateway to the Llanos Tropical Savannah.





You can't talk about cities or people in Colombia without talking about how intrinsically they're tied to the nature that's on their doorstep and even in the city. Something lost among most in the developed and even much of the developing world.

Of the last 10 threads on the world forum, 60% are about Covid-19. I understand its if course THE major topic if our time but its everywhere 24/7 - a little overkill.
Why not discuss some other topics to distract us.

Cali I think is a mix of Atlanta and Camaguey, Cuba; Medellin has a hint of Barcelona & Tel Aviv, Bogota is like a Northern England powerhouse city mixed with Quito, Cartagena is like a mix of Seville & Panama City, Barranquilla feels like a Baton Rouge inside a Mini Dallas and the list of urban diversity goes on.

These houses reminds me a lot the british row houses; it's a surprise that they are also present in Colombia. I never saw any place like this in Brazil.

Just type in Teusaquillo, Quinta Camacho, La Merced, Zona G and Palermo, Bogota and you will see plenty on google images. Until relatively recently they were pretty cheap too as the were abandoned for Condos in more desirable areas of the city.

I also think its unfair to say Canada is homogenous. It has about moderate divesity in the urban aesthetics of its cities.

Outside the US, Italy has a lot of physical diversity between major cities especially between Northern and Southern Italy. France has similar regional differences too though not to the extent of Italy. The difference between Venice and Palermo is definitely very large.

The OP said that Mexico is very homogenous which I don't think is true. Cancun, Mexico City, Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta and Ciudad Juarez all look very different. But Mexico has various city models - the beach resort, Mexico City, the colonial cities, and the border cities each with a different style.

Russian cities are very homogenous aside from Moscow and St. Petersburg.
