A new building at a Northeast China university that bears a resemblance to the Arc of Trimph has sparked debate over copycat architecture on China's college campuses. An alpine town, the Eiffel Tower, the Egyptian pyramids … they seem to be everywhere.

China's own traditional architecture is aesthetically fantastic. And there are some examples of modern architecture inspired by the traditional. But why are Chinese obsessed with iconic foreign buildings? Not just in terms of what they look like but also the fact they simply don't fit in with their surroundings.
