It's more to search by style. Typicaly French architectural style are:

- Gothic Architecture (formerly known as French architecture actually)
- Second Empire

That's about it, there are of course other architectural styles that are well present in France but they originated from other places (ie: romanesque, baroque & neo-baroque, classical & neo-classical).

Indeed, but the French neo-classical, for exemple (which includes second empire style), is not the same than others, and many neo-classical buildings in the world are clearly influenced by the French one....

I forgot star shaped fortresses designed by Vauban, these are trully typical.
