Who said 'bigger' isn't 'better'?

Well, who knows, most of the time its only a matter of showcasing how rich someone is, or well- connected or strong or powerful. In this case, its about architecture or perhaps it would be better to say architectural giants built in the capital of Azerbaijan showcasing yet again the whatever it is the country  leaders are trying to make it look like. 

The series of three videos below are part of the Discovery Channel's "Build it Bigger" show hosted by Danny Forster who travels the world in the search of "bigger" architectural marvels, talking about them and most importantly enjoying it very much. Here you can find detailed info on each of the countries and projects the show hosted. 

In the episode on Azerbaijan, Danny visits the extravagant Heydar Aliyev Culture Center and the Flame Towers

I came across these three videos on Twitter while reading my friend Ani's feed. So with no further ado, I present you the tree parts of a show on Azerbaijan.
