Well, the cities consist strictly of historical buildings built till 1900´s.

The first "modern" city, allowed to use modern building techniques (such as combination of glass and iron) and skycrapers, built from 1987 untill 1999 is Bernitz, which has approximately 200 000 inhabitans.

A blend of Gothic and Victorian, although newer buildings have an increasingly modern bent.

Sidhae have a thing for everything Gothic.

Mostly modern buildings with skyscrapers of iron and glass. The government buildings are like ancient greece architecture. some old buildings still stand from other times that seem like colonial architecture from spain.

Americanized Romanesque.

Sothis, as a city-state has no parks, streets wide enough for vehicular traffic, and a lack of sunlight at the ground level. As such, our maze-like city often appears to be more like one building that is linked together by arches, and bridges over the streets, than actual separate buildings. Interstate highways are tunneled below the ground and bridged around the towers whereever possible, creating a mess of a city. Since our founding Brick and Stone facades are only permitted.

Pre 1980 zeganas had mainly modern and old european/north american architecture, post 1980 is modern and postmodern asian architecture for big skyscrapers, for housing and smaller buildings it's postmodern north american.
Borneik city, nicknamed the "upstart city" has the largest skyline and tallest building in zeganas, the gem tower, at 3,000 ft tall. The "normal" height skyscrapers stand at a height of 1,300-1,500 ft tall. And is an incredibly fast growing downtown population.

And there's san meggan, known for it's gleaming lights at night along the seashore.
The tallest skyscraper, san meggan harbor tower, stands at 1,640 ft tall, the highrise apartments at 750 ft usually. With cheap apartments downtown san meggan got 3 million people.
The dark skyscraper under construction across the river is the new capitol building, which will be 1,502 ft tall to the roof for the founding of the first republics and 1,798 for the full unification year of zeganas.

Suburbs are either stricly circular patterns whether they are one giant circle or a collection of them in a honeycomb style, or they are strictly very square.
Some of the more recent developments have been suburbs of high rises built in or close to cities, like this one at a river in san meggan delta.

essentially atonio gaudi, antoni lovins, roger dean, late early middle hippie alternative, minimalist, zen, form REALLY fallowing function, quirky, convoluted, rectangles exist as the exception, solar or living roofs primarily, every material, though much comes from on or near site, tansition space often emphasized (a cameroi wouldn't think of building without some sort of sheltered and roofed entryway).
also accessability as cameroi are of multiple species and often further genetically further self customized.

ostentation (of scale) is uncommon, few structures are ever built any larger then they absolutely need to be. camoeroi LOVE tiny rooms and narrow twisting hallways, also the natural convolutions of underground caves which are sometimes deliberately immitated in above ground construction.

structures often integrated into multilevel landscape/gardens.

few structures more then 5 floors above ground, but many more below and connected is not uncommon in urban areas, though majority of cameroi live in densely forested rural.

one of the more unique forms, or rather, not really a form in and of itself, but maze like ad hoc constrution by multiple occupants, called a palace of strangeness.

structures often interpenitrate gardens and wild forest with small form factor transit infrastructure often interpenitrating them.

while close to 30% of roofs are "living roofs" that is covered with gardens of living plants, more then half of all roofs are at least partially, and many completely, covered in solar electric panels.
truth isn't what i say. isn't what you say. isn't what anybody says. truth is what is there, when no one is saying anything.

Postmodern and modern architecture is the most prominent today. Also common is neomodern architecture which tries to aims itself towards simple designs but ends up being boring since most of our newer skyscraper look simply like a bunch of glass built towards the sky. Because of this an effort has been put into place in preserving older art deco and neoclassical buildings. Most suburban developments follow neo-eclectic designs.
