Beaux-Arts Architecture compilation

Quote:
Beaux-Arts architecture (/ˌboʊˈzɑr/; French: [bozaʁ]) expresses the academic neoclassical architectural style taught at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. The style "Beaux Arts" is above all the cumulative product of two-and-a-half centuries of instruction under the authority, first, of the Académie royale d'architecture (1671–1793), then, following the French Revolution of the late 18th century, of the Architecture section of the Académie des Beaux-Arts (1795– ). The organization under the Ancien Régime of the competition for the "Grand Prix de Rome" in architecture, offering a chance to study in Rome, imprinted its codes and aesthetic on the course of instruction, which culminated during the Second Empire (1852–1870) and the Third Republic that followed. The style of instruction that produced Beaux-Arts architecture continued without major interruption until 1968.[1]

The Beaux-Arts style heavily influenced the architecture of the United States in the period from 1880 to 1920.[2] Non-French European architects of the period 1860–1914 tended to gravitate toward their own national academic centers rather than fixating on Paris. British architects of Imperial classicism, in a development culminating in Sir Edwin Lutyens's New Delhi government buildings, followed a somewhat more independent course, owing to the cultural politics of the late 19th century.

Was built in the last decade of the 19th century by public subscription, by a French architect in the French Eclecticist style, and remains the premier venue for classical music in the country. The acoustics are amazing.

Very Petit Palais-ish. Sadly it is not in a good state, as can be seen bellow.

Was built between 1897 and 1900, with plans by French architect Paul Gottereau.

From the same architect of the Army House, this is the old Chamber of Deputies, now Orthodox Patriarchy. I like this one much more than the Army House, I find it more graceful. It was built in 1907.

The whole complex is on a hill and makes up a nice little historical skyline on its own.

Quality pics don't seem to exist in abundance, I'll try to find better ones and come back.

My Bucharest favourite: The Central University Library, built as the House of Royal Foundations in 1893 by the same Paul Gottereau (see the CEC building above).

On the opposite side of the road where the CEC palace lies, this is the National History Museum, built between 1983 and 1900 as the Postal Service Palace. Was inspired by the equivalent building in Geneva apparently.
