Your Favourite Historical Style Of Architecture?

Sorry if this thread has been posted a billion times before.

I'm a feind for old architecture. To me, buildings these days don't compare. So I'm curious as to what your personal favourite styles are.

I'll use the Emporis list of the historical archetecture as it will save time.

For various photos and descriptions of the different styles, click here.

For me it's a tie between neo-classical and neo-gothic, but I will vote for neo-classical.

Neo-gothical. I love the detail and amount of work put in to every part of the building.

Beaux-Arts. beautiful. We have the Cullinan hotel in Cape Town built in that style, eventhough the hotel is about 8 years old. My fave building.

I like Baroque the best, followed by Rococo. Since they were not given as choices, I voted for Beaux-Arts because I love the look of Paris so much.
