I see some. From the outside you can even see the resemblance to Notre Dame cathedral in its two imposing towers. In the interior the verticality of the columns, pointed arches, and chandeliers do remind of Gothic architecture.

Maybe it can be categorized as Art Deco/Gothic.

I agree that there are suggestions of both styles - neo gothic and art deco. It reminds me of both, but it really isn't either one. It is too stark for an art deco interior, and it lacks elegance and fluidity.

But I do like the use of light.

As Freiburger I know that it is one of the really beautiful buildings in Freiburg. But I didn't know that it has such a prominent architect. Thanks for the information.

Elegant and gracious and also imposing. French roof design is quite unique in its style and beauty.
