Colonial Architecture - General Thread

There are remarkable pieces of colonial architecture scattered all over the world. The most remarkable for me has always been Cape-Dutch in South-Africa.

etc, etc, etc,...............................

I also consider the former presidential palace in Haiti build by the French as a major achievement

What are other examples of remarkable colonial architecture?

I recently visited Marrakesh and Congo. I was astonished by the so called European city in Marrakesh. Looks perfect as some French Provence city of the fifties while the Belgians clearly left some good (not flashy) buildings in Congo.

I wasn't speaking about the building, I was speaking about the Franchise inside the building. And by the way

I was being sarcastic

@Snoenske

If you'd have looked around before opening this thread, you would have found out that there already is a huge thread on Dutch colonial architecture and thus Cape Dutch architecture.

East African colonial architecture

Perhaps not up to those quoted but a number of remarkable buildings still survive within the former East African territories - not least my old school by Herbert Baker.
