Why is not "how big are the lakes?" acceptable?

Hey there, I am also not a native speaker in Dutch, but intuitively I think I would use "big" rather for something like a big (and high) building while the lakes are maybe also big, but also ("horizontally") wide in space - It is just my guess but maybe it helps?

Maybe someone knows it better? ;)
