Some French art deco and modernism buildings in Saigon.

Unlike most of other colonial cities in the empire which are about clasicalism, Saigon is about modernism in term of achitecture. Sadly, most of them has fallen

The second one is the old governeur's residence of Cochin-China by Foulhoux - 1890, now the Hochiminh City Museum

The third one is the Hotel de Ville by Gardes - 1898, now still Hotel de Ville.

the Haussmann architecture is a variant of the architecture of the Second Empire. Belle epoque is generalist, beaux arts perhaps?
