I have found this from the Infernal City novel:
Rimmen has elegant bones of ivory-colored stone with few towers but many domes. Soldiers- human soldiers- met them at the gate... For another hundred yards they snaked through the twists and turns of an entry overlooked by platforms for archers, mages, and siege weapons. that brought them to the market, a bustling, colorful plaza empty in the middle but girdled by tents and stalls and bounded by canols. A broad avenue flanked by even more expansive waterways continued on to what was clearly the palace, an ancient-looking structure raised up on a high, tiered substructure. the tiers held some buildings, and apparently earth, because he[Attrebus] could see trees growing there. Surmounting that was a cylindrical building with a large golden dome. Water cascaded down the sides of the palace, feeding the pool that encircled it.

Attrebus wondered where all the water came from.

Off to the eastern side of the palace, he could see the odd curly-edged roof of what had to be the Akaviri temple ... The only place ... with similar architecture was Cloud Ruler Temple...
...

He was surprised to see that fewer than half of the people were Khajiit, and many of those lolled about with wild or vacant eyes, skooma pipes clutched in their hands. ...

They left the plaza, crossing a canol on a footbridge and thence down a narrow street where gently chiming bells were depended between the flat roofs of the buildings and viridian moths flittered in the shadows. the addicts were even thicker here, a few watching them and holding out their hands for money; but most were shivering, lost in their visions.

They arrived at their destinations, a smaller square with a fortified building surrounded by guards in purple surcoats and red sashes.

This can also be used to help plan the town.

From Dragon Break Study
Rh'leyt-harhr, Khajiit, Tender to the Mane:
"Do you mean, where were the Khajiiti when the Dragon Broke? I'll tell you where: we were recording it. 'One thousand and eight years,' you've all heard it. You probably believe that the Cyro-Nordics came up with that all on their own. You humans are better thieves than even Rajhin! While you were fighting wars with phantoms and giving birth to your own fathers, it was the Mane that watched the ja-Kha'jay, because the moons were the only constant, and you didn't have the sugar to see it. We'll give you credit: you broke Alkosh something fierce, and that's not easy. Just don't think you solved what you accomplished by it, or can ever solve it. You did it again with Big Walker, not once, but _twice_! Once at Rimmen, which we'll never learn to live with. The second time it was in Daggerfall, or was it Sentinel, or was it Wayrest, or was in all three places at once? Get me, Cyrodiil? When will you wake up and realize what _really_ happened to the Dwarves?"
There was a Dragon Break in Rimmen and Khajiits "will never learn to live with". What did it happened?

What is a dragon break? I have never known what that is.

And someone had proposed an explanation for what can do a Dragon Break:

When Zurin Arctus and the Blades reactivated the Numidium for Tiber Septim, they used it at Rimmen. And something that wasn't became something that is. But whatever they wanted, they failed...

Uh-huh. Seems that most architecture is ivory colored stone. Most was built by the Akaviri...
