The three distinct dimensions give the axonometric projection a far more substantial spatial aesthetic than the "floating field" technique but this is countered by the lack of depth distortion, which inhibits the naturalism of the scene.
If one then looks at the axonometric projections of buildings in Poland, in particular the "Centrum E housing estate" in Nowa Huta (Stanek, 2012a, page 41), one can indeed discern a sensitivity to the urban context (as well as to aspects of scale, volume, style, proportion, and traditional imagery) that was inspired by the experience of Polish designers in Africa and the Middle East.
