Paris
Indeed !
Almost the same (in a bigger scale) than "Magasins Réunis-Etoile/Fnac", Avenue Niel in Paris !

"Late Art-Nouveau" style !



Buenos Aires is really stunning !!

PS: Thanks all of you for your pics !

Thanks I think Buenos Aires is the largest city with a French influence in its architecture in the world, as the French influence is not only confined to the city center but is also a km from the center.

It would be meaningless to categorize the entite gothic tradition as French, even if it reached its first mature expression in France. That would be saying that all classically inspired buildings are Greek. England has its own gothic tradition, because the use of similar elements produced a different vernacular there from that of France. Whether the architects were born in France is quite irrelevant, because categorization is not about crediting a particular country but simply to classify. Similarly, the French mannerist or baroque styles are not Greek or Italian because French architects used classical elements to form a uniquely French expression of classical ideals.

We would refer to something being in French style, when the building is meant to exude a particular Frenchness. Second empire and beaux arts have always been popular to copy beacuse of associations to wealth and style. The Mansard roof is often seen as a strikingly French feature, but can also be incorporated into buildings that overall are not French. There are German examples of this.

The fact that Buenos Aires is so reliable to the French architectural style, is caused because the Argentinean capital was, designed by French architects and urban landscape designers, in the XIX and XX.
So, you could see that there are many buildings that are like sisters in Paris and Baires.

BTW: Buenos Aires is a superb city: I love the architecture, the people, the tango and the dancers. I'd love to visit it some time in my life!
