This again has turned into: Let's call all 19th and early 20th century buildings Beaux Arts/French. *sigh*

40% of the buildings of this page are not Beaux Arts but of different other styles:

Neoclassical:


Edwardian baroque (interesting to see this in Brazil):


Neorenaissance:


This is just eclecticist:


Neoclassical:


Neorenaissance:


Real Italian baroque:


Neobaroque:


Neorenaissance:


Neorenaissance:


Neoclassicism:


Neoclassicism:


Art Nouveau/Modernisme:


Neorenaissance:


Neorenaissance:


I'm getting tired. :/

^that's very harsh... Judging like that, there is no Beaux Arts style (which in reality is only a new take on the same classical language), even its most high profile buildings would be just a mix of neoclassical, neorenaissance and neobaroque.

The building that you label edwardian seems to be quoting French architure directly, with those Saint Sulpice styled towers... And regarding the arts museum in Rio, I can see that the boxy rectangular volumes make you think of Quattrocento architecture, but that "dome" is extremely specific to Beaux-Arts architecture, it even features on buildings I have posted myself here or that EMarg has posted.

I wasn't harsh at all, I merely stated the obvious. Many of the buildings in here are just not Beaux Arts. One of those was even real Italian baroque from the 17th century. With some other buildings it might be debatable though, I'll give you that.
By the way, this isn't the only thread about Beaux Arts in this forum in which people at some point basically claim all 19th century architecture was Beaux Arts just because they don't know any better. That's the reason why I even responded here. It happens often...and annoys me, because real Beaux Arts is actually my most favorite architecture style.

Regarding this building...




...it's clearly more Edwardian than similar to Saint Sulpice. Here are other examples of that style:





Saint Sulpice's towers may also be round, much more they don't have in common.



You could have picked better examples. Some of the baroque and neoclassicist domes of Paris for example that have a similar column structure. But these kind of domes aren't unique to French baroque. You'll find them in Italy, Spain, Germany and of course the UK where it inspired Edwardian baroque.

To not just criticize but also to actively contribute to this thread:
Here's a rare example of Beaux Arts in Germany:

Dresden's Academy of Art

Kunstakademie by Dennis Karjetta, on Flickr

Dresden (Altstadt) - Kunstakademie by Patrick Scholl, on Flickr

I wasn't talking about your tone, which was fine. I was talking of where you set your threshold of what's Beaux-Arts and what's not.
For example, what you did was like me coming and saying (in a virtual scenario) that the Belfast City Hall building you gave as an example above is a neoclassical building and claiming something else is ludicrous. Which would be correct at this harsh level of judging, but I'd disagree with because I believe that regional and/or historical nuances of larger artistic languages can stand on their own as subsets / subgenres etc.

But the building was given as an example for another of its façades if I remember well.

No you ARE getting harsh in tone too

I didn't say the building is similar to Saint Sulpice, but that its towers could be referencing Saint-Sulpice. But if you say this kind of tower is common in Edwardian architecture too then I believe you, the influence might as well not be French.
Although now that I look at it again, beyond its towers, the loggia is also an element that resembles Saint Sulpice a lot, so who knows. Instead of a loggia at the front, your examples have Greek type frontons on columns.
Overall I'd say the Brazilian building looks a lot more like Saint-Sulpice than like your examples, despite your claim to the contrary. Neither of your examples have that combination of massive loggia and "cut" towers on the sides. BTW now that I mention that the towers are"cut", I realize that the side towers in your examples aren't, and the cut endings are what is the most peculiar and specific about the Saint-Sulpice towers (and others in French architecture).
The one similarity with your example is the pedestal type ground floor but I don't see that as a major element.

Huh? I'm not sure what to understand from this. I think you may be talking about the same towers as above and calling them domes, but I was talking about another building, the Rio art museum, the one with the dome. Here it is:
