A city in which you find different architecture


Senior Member
Can I express a city in which you find different architecture as follows:

"In our country a city epitomizing distinct architecture is called X."

PS:should you think I have not used a correct way to imply the intended meaning, please let me know how I can say it!

    Hiya, what is your audience for this?

    What you have written does not really sound very idiomatic.
    We would not say a city is called, we would probably start with the city's name:
    London offers a great range of distinct architecture from different periods.

    As a general reader, I would have no idea what "district architecture" was, unless it was explained. If it is explained elsewhere in whatever work this is going into, I would have no problem with using "epitomize," given Suzy's caveat: Chicago epitomizes district architecture.
