Baroque Architecture

I haven't seen any thread with this style on here. Might as well make one.
Rounded arches, ovals, pillars and extravagent ornament makes up this style.

Interesting thread and nice architecture but would you add the photo source or the names of the photographers below each photo. Thanks!

Of course, if you can find any new enough to be considered a revival.

That's Renaissance, not Baroque I think.

This is another part of that building, I'm pretty sure it's baroque. All the characteristics are there.

From its wikipedia page:

Quote:
The architects rebuilt the interior of the Hôtel de Ville within the stone shell that had survived the fire. While they rebuilt Hôtel de Ville –from the outside– a copy of the 16th-century French Renaissance building that stood before 1871, the new interior was based on an entirely new design, with ceremonial rooms lavishly decorated in the 1880s style.
