~ Now China copies whole European City!

Too much Copycat! It seems in China people misunderstood “Copyright” as “Copying is Right” 🙂 🙂

See China’s many copycat cities below…

US author Ms Binaca Bosker in her research showing how China had copied whole European (French,Greek,Austrian,German,Italy,Netherland) city and built it for people, not Amusement Park etc, real city for Chinese buyers.

She has visited many such Copycat cities and discussed the impact of it on China and original place’s tourism, etc in her book – “Original Copies: Archetectural Minicry in Contemporary China”

In India, there are some localities/parks which are inspired by famous Archetecures from abroad (see Lavasa City below) but generally people like to Celebrate Diversity and Different local indian culture based Archetecture in various states across India.

Hope Chinese will understand,its actually good to belong to the Different culture, heritage and civilization, not whole world should copy to be  Same (like Clone).

Being Differnt and preserving diversity is good for world society.Each country must preseve their Differnce and  Diversity, Sameness in the World will be boring!
