Indeed, but there are nevertheless some examples of French(influenced) architecture built in GB back then (during the same period, or/and just before) :

PS: What you call "Beaux Arts Style" doesn't exist here in France (I mean, not under that name).

I agree, the Notre-Dame d'Afrique Basilica is not "French influenced", it's simply French (since it was built and designed by the French)

It was built in order to be the African "counterpart" of the Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica in Marseille, on the other side of the Med. sea :





A bit like the Saint-Louis Cathedral in Carthage (Tunis metro area),which is even more "recent" AFAIK:

But, sorry, the rest isn't! Haus zur Trülle is Renaissance revival but it's northern/germanic Renaissance, not french Renaissance. It has very few similarities with the Chateau you posted. Especially the towers/spires of Haus zur Trülle are distinctively germanic. And when I say germanic I don't just mean "german". Sorry to tell you, but Switzerland is for the most part a germanic country too.
And I do not know, where you have that "small brother of the Arc de Triomphe" from, but have you actually compared the entry gate of the station with Arc de Triomphe? There are all over Europe numerous other triumph arches that look much more similar to Zürich Hauptbahnhof.
Triumph arches are a roman and not french invention by the way and Arc de Triomphe was not the first one.

In fact here in this thread are some more examples of architecture, that IS NOT french. Just because it was built around 1900 doesn't make it "french".
Since when is Neo Byzantine architecture french? Just because of Sacre Coeur?
I agree with you. At Main Station I was just joking. «Haus zur Trülle» is, on the point of view, mainly influenced by just every Style you could imagine. The windows in french renaissance, the top german, as you could find also these styles such as Bourgogne etc. Pfleghard Häfeli, the architects, just were copying several styles they saw in theyr voyages. In the detailling, you find ironic stuff like «the Joker», flowers and a Pelican (no eagles were allowed, too german):

Germans? We are Germans? Would you say the IRA is british? We are gallo-celtic, a french country, so called «Helvetians», were under german siege since one of us killed one of them (William Tell), then we were a free little country!!

Some other french stuff:

You do know that germanic does not equal german, right? I think you have some weird paranoia with Germany. XD We are talking about architecture here and not about what ancient tribe you once were.

Here another french influenced building in my city Trier:

@ Tjaren: So you ARE German? I thought you were Swedish (because of the name). So look out for your words yelling some stupid stuff in here, bloody Kraut.



PS.: Cool picture, left gothic, right some Neorenaissance and in the middle some french. I like the look not totally clean an' overrenovated (like in my city Zurich). Has got some soul.

Hi everyone...

Lima (capital of Peru) is not most french influenced city in Latin America. However I think it is the one that caught the essence of urbanism of Paris best ...

Two boulevards (one of them with french style buildings) were laid out in historical centre. Both boulvevards meet at a circular square (2 de Mayo) with french-inspired buildindgs.


Here is the monument exhibited in Paris.



Here the monument placed in Dos de Mayo Square, Lima 1873.





That square set the beginning of a urban growth beyond the spanish colonial town.




















Here are any other french buildings

Rimac Building, 1920s







Quinta Presa, s. XVIII

Unfortunately i do not have any pictures of my own with the old Bucharest (the capital of Romania), but you can admire these photos below wich are just a few examples. The French architecture was a strong model for Bucharest's architects between 1860 until 1930's.

CEC Bank


The Romanian Athenaeum


The National Military Circle


The National Library


The Students's Library


The Triumphal Arch


The Faculty of Medicine


The Romanian Comercial Bank

A French Renaissance style hotel in Manila is presently being restored..

Luneta Hotel


http://runningpinoy.wordpress.com/20...towalk-manila/


http://gerryruiz.wordpress.com/2007/12/13/luneta-hotel/


Quote:
Completed in 1918, the Luneta Hotel was designed by Spanish architect-engineer Salvador Farre, according to a study by Dean John Joseph Fernandez of the University Of Santo Tomas College Of Architecture.

It is being touted as the only structure reminiscent of French Renaissance architecture with Filipino stylized beaux arts in the country, Fernandez said.

The dilapidated building fronting Rizal Park was declared a historical landmark by the National Historical Institute and is protected by Presidential Decree 1505 which makes it unlawful to alter or destroy the original features of an edifice classified by the NHI without prior written permission from its chair.

In São Paulo we still have some examples of French inspired architecture, but the most precious ones were Palacetes Prates:

I would really like to find an investor to rebuild it. It could be a hotel, a residential building, or something, and the payback would be sure to come

All that I have been reading and seeing of Lima is much better than I expected.

Very nice buldings!
