French architecture, Often imitated, never equaled

About eastern palaces. I think they all have their own charm.

Versailles is truly built on a grand scale, but its size sometimes proved its undoing.

As grand as the state rooms are, huge swaths of the palace remained very primitive. Historically, courtiers dreaded the compulsory attendance because of the bad accomodations for everyone except for the King and his family. And the lack of lavatories and privies was so bad that the courtiers were forced to piss and shit on the grand stairway landings. Something like this would have been unheard of in the great Eastern palaces, where cleanliness and fastidiousness was more enforced than in European palaces.

Even today, you can make direct comparisons between Versailles and the Louvre. Although Versailles is much much grander, the finishes in the Louvre are consistently of higher quality overall. In many places in Versailles, you only have scagolia, or faux marble, whereas some of the great galleries in the Louvre are finished with the finest and most precious marbles.

In many ways, Versailles was a grand stage -- in some places, pure smoke and mirrors. Still, it remained the palace to imitate in all of Europe.

i recently got more interested in some eastern palaces when I was browsing some Seoul threads and found that Seoul has many grand palaces that had lots of it destroyed during the Japanese occupation of Korea.

Many of them look similar to the Forbidden City in Beijing and I find this fairly interesting.

Also the one in Hue, Vietnam also looks similar to the Forbidden City buildings except in slightly different, more Vietnamese style

Again, i find these similarities very interesting. I was wondering if anyone has visited these palaces such as Gyeongbok Palace in Seoul?





some photos from google of Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul

There was a wonderful article about this palace (with lots of nice pictures) published in Arts of Asia a year or two ago. The similarities with the Forbidden City were discussed in some detail.
