Peut être plus romano-byzantin.

Ce qu'on appelle en français: Style néo-byzantin.

(inutile, je pense, de te citer trois fameux exemples dominant les trois plus grandes villes françaises , sachant que ce style fut très en vogue durant le Second Empire & à la Belle Epoque et que par conséquent il y a des dizaines d'autres exemples, ici en France).

« designed in an eclectic variation on the ornate French Renaissance style » … the architect certainly wanted to celebrate french architecture perhaps but he did it with so much influences…
who here can denied that there is too in this building victorian, german and italien influence. You ?
Come in France, i propose to be your guide…i know perfectly what is « the french renaissance architecture » and this building is perhaps 10% about french architecture
i repeate myself : why an eclectic building with so much influences can be only called « french influence »??? it’s true in a certain way and it’s incomplete…
and there’s so much examples in this thead.
And there is so much posts in this thread with 100% no French influence…
I just propose to people to take care about what they say… so I will not shut up and propose to you to stay polite with like I’m with you please

That building in Richmond looks very German with some British influences to me. But this thread is testament to the prestige that anything "French" has in the world, so why are the French offended?

i'm not here to honorate french architecture but to respect what architecture is

that's french renaissance




look and compare with the richmond train station



see the roof ... there is no red tile in the french renaissance... the roofs are in slate
see the ground floor... there is no rustic stones in french renaissance
see the first floor... there is no open loggia in the french renaissance
see the belfry... there is no belfry in the french renaissance castle
see the brick... there is no french renaissance building entirely in brick... they are always mixed with stones like in paris, place des vosges


another examples????

That's another French Renaissance castle :

Le Manoir de Bévilliers, near Le Havre (woch shelters l'Académie Golf club de Normandie).
It's a Renaissance architecture specificly located in le Pays de Caux, in Normandy.




The Richmond building looks like the architecture of the Nord Pas de Calais (in the north of France) and Belgium :

City Hall of Calais :

during the historical period called Renaissance the "Nord Pas de Calais" was not french
this area became french during Louis XIV who became king in 1643 until 1715 (and the renaissance was finished)... so sorry what you call "the architecture Nord Pas de Calais" is NOT french renaissance
like for example the Strasbourg cathedral which is german architecture because it was built when Strasbourg was German (but with french influence---- YES a little complicated... but because the design of the nave is french design)

I did not speak about the French Renaissance for Nord-Pas-de-Calais...

It's a Flemish architecture (In a way)... Typical of the north of France and Belgium !

Hmm..I don't really see it. The similiarity is rather superficial and limited more or less to the overall shape of the building. The windows of the Richmond building look very much like German neo-renaissance, and the top of the belfry looks like something you'd find in the UK or northern Germany.

Maybe, but there are French influenced architecture/buildings not only in the former French colonies, but also in numerous countries which have never been French possessions, such as Argentina and several other Latin American countries, the US (former Louisiana excluded) , the UK, Spain, Germany, Romania, Australia, etc, etc.

Once again, I am not the nps, stop whining about it, it looks beautiful, and it has been classified as french renaissance revival. You can stop whining about how 1 structure only has some french influenced elements.

Im Sooo sorry I am saying this based on facts (howabout we call it Japanese influenced Just for you, so you can shut up and just let people post) If you really care this much, how about you contact NPS and complain about how its not French to them after all, I was not the one who classified it that.

I just posted this because its a beautiful train station in my town which happens to be considered french (I would say it seems to be french influenced too). why don't you actually add more of what you think is French influenced rather than be a jerk about it.

Not being only French influenced doesn't prevent those buildings from being French influenced. Feel free to create other "influenced" threads in which you may use the same images.
Now indeed you repeat yourself. Way too much.

And who cares ? Oh wait, nobody but you. Oh yeah.

You behave as a lesson teller and as an offensive one. You're so sure of holding the universal truth.

Thanks for the precision. Ohterwise we might have thought you came here only to find a reason to complain and to attack people. By the way you have no idea about what architecture truly is. Actually it is never 100% something.

Wow. Thanks for teaching the ignorant world such wonderful peace of knowledge. Thanks for giving the ignoramus and the uncultivated a chance to improve their poor life. Thanks for all.
Of course you did nothing here but post images from France, which is totally off the subject. But well. After all you let us hope you have finished. Thanks again.
