Very nice building.. but not very French influenced I must admit unfortunately (if not French influenced at all) .

Having said that, don't get me wrong 'cause I'll/d be happy to learn about the Frenchness of this building...

Well of course it's an eclectic building but I think the french influence is undeniable... it's clearly inspired in french palaces.

As Tincho Lavie says, it can only be categorized as eclectic. This has influence of the Art Nouveau of France and Italy. Have in mind that the different types of Art Nouveau were adapted when they came to Argentina. In other strange cases, you may also find argentinian adaptations of the New Art of Vienna and Catalunya (mostly in Buenos Aires).

Lezama Palace - Buenos Aires



The golden age of the architecture of Buenos Aires went even further from the residential buildings, reaching the industries of the city. Unlike the residences and big houses of the 1880-1930 period, the industrial architecture had the luxury of experimenting with new styles, far from the french and italian academicism. One of the most iconic factories of Buenos Aires following this concept was the Canale Factory, also iconic for its cookies and other sweet products and its presence in the argentine market for almost a century. Because of its huge size and the great views in front of the Lezama Park (who’s also in a small hill), the Canale Palace is an essential piece of the neighborhood of San Telmo (though it’s actually in the exact limit with the neighborhood of La Boca). For all the massive influx of tourists who came back from their vacactions on the beach of the cities of the south of the province, it was great to smell the cookies from this factory and the Bagley Factory just a few blocks away (the highway finishes just in front of this area). Nowadays, it’s part of the vast restoration of the South, where dozens of old factories are being recicled, resulting in a very cool revitalization of that part of the city.

Second-Empire architecture was popular in 19th century America. Indiana has a large collection of Second-Empire buildings, both folk and true interpretations of the style.
