The article is OR. The subject of the article does not exist: there is no architectural term called "Architectural school of Arran" and the content has been copied from scattered information already existing in various articles. Meowy 01:18, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Delete I reviewed the references for the articles, and they largely consist of broken links and links which do not refer to the Architectural school of Arran. I can find no sources at all mentioning this topic, and I don't see any material in this article which can be proven to be accurate. There already exists an article architecture of Azerbaijan, which covers the region of Arran. NJ Wine (talk) 04:06, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Merge to Architecture of Azerbaijan. (For those wondering surrealistically about institutions on the Isle of Arran, the topic is Arran (Caucasus).) The A of A article is in fact unreferenced; I have no idea whether the refs here are any good but expect NJ Wine is right. At least the buildings mentioned in the article are real and notable.

We could merge it if it was identifiable subject but it is not, pure OR. Sprutt (talk) 00:34, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Delete per Meowy, and because it is WP:OR. Do not merge. Sprutt (talk) 00:34, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Keep. In the book of K. Mamedzade, published by Institute of a History of Azerbaijan Academy of Science Architectural school of Arran is mentioned:
К. М. Мамед-заде. Строительное искусство Азербайджана, Баку, 1983:

В связи с проблемами арранской архитектурной школы это сооружение представляет большой интерес. Дело в том, что памятники Аракса в основном входят в зону влияния нахичеванской архитектурной школы. Именно у 15-пролетного моста можно констатировать и влияние арранской архитектурной школы.(Page 59)

Delete. Мамед-заде is no credible source (e.g. internationally recognized scientist) and is Azerbaijan's Soviet era Ziya Bunyadov-managed compromised source. Sprutt (talk) 13:37, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
K. M. Mamedzade is a Doctor of Architecture, very credible source. --Interfase (talk) 08:42, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Relisted to generate a more thorough discussion so a clearer consensus may be reached.

  • Three more academic sources are found by this search, so the claims that this subject does not exist are clearly refuted. Phil Bridger (talk) 16:30, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
I wish we could get some experts on architectural writing here. Many of the coments on display here (and at the related [[1]]) have been dissapointing. This is the English-language wikipedia and "Architectural school" is a term used in English-language academic sources that has a specific meaning related to architecture. If that specific meaning is not met, the article should not exist, regardless of foreign-language phrases that might have a word for word translation as "architectural school". None of these alleged sources for of "architectural school of Arran" give any explanation (such as possible stylistic aspects or school of architects/ master masons, etc.) that justify an English-language useage of the term "architectural school of Arran".
