Neoclassicism? Opéra Garnier?



Interesting classification.

Yes it is, because Second Empire style (Napoléon III style) is a kind of French neoclassicism, just like the Beaux-Arts Style (which doesn't exist in France)!!

from wiki :

""L'opéra Garnier, peut être considéré comme l'apogée du style Napoléon III : il s'agit d'éclectisme, mais seulement à partir du classicisme dans ses différentes phases (de la renaissance au néo-classicisme).""

It doesn't feature neo classicist but neo baroque (tending to rococo) elements.

Though there might be a different definition of neoclassicism in French.

I know about this. I'm pretty much into this architecture as well. The term "neoclassicism" is still misleading in this case. It usually isn't used to describe the style you're talking about.
Just call it Beaux Arts architecture or 2nd Empire Style. Or historism. That's unambiguous

If this here was in German I would have initially wrote "Historismus" or more precisely "Neobarock". Also nix für ungut!

By the way, here my favorite Beaux Arts building in Germany (where this style is pretty rare):

Royal Academy of Arts, Dresden

I love it as well. Pretty good combination of French and German features of that time.

And a good replacement for the bland early baroque buildings that stood there before.

This is an interesting style. Some call it Neo-Dravidian. Its a combination of Indo-Saracenic and South Indian temple architecture. The building is Vidhan Soudha (Bangalore)

With all the great styles of architecture, it seems so dull that we usually only build modern ones (not that the style is bad, but come on, how about some diversity?).
