This French Renaissance style building houses the iconic Danish departmental store 'Magasin' which after it's takeover of the Hotel du Nord, was renamed as as "Magasin du Nord". The company's root dates back to 1868, and were celebrating 150 years of operation in the year of 2018! . . . . #magasin #magasindunord #dusk #denmark #danisharchitecture #frenchrenaissancearchitecture #holidayseason #copenhagen #visitcopenhagen #visitdenmark #what_i_saw_in_denmark #denmarkphotography #thelocal #igerdenmark #instagood #lategram #scandinavia #visitscandinavia

Wilson building, 1903. French renaissance/second empire (beaux arts) style building. I always find it fascinating building, every time I passed by. I like the style of the building it self. It take you back to the original time and imaging what it like before the technology emerge. #photography #dallas #downtown #wilsonbuilding #beauxarts #frenchrenaissancearchitecture #architecture

I M Pei's Pyramid in the courtyard of the Louvre. Completed in 1989, the pyramid forms the entrance to the museum but has courted controversy ever since its original conception, for many reasons but mostly because of the imposition of a piece of hard modernist architecture in front of the French Renaissance Palais du Louvre. Personally, I love it. The contrast and constantly varying way it reflects the light and the palace around it adds to, rather than detracts from the original building. #louvre #palaisdulouvre #louvrepyramid #impei #museum #frenchrenaissancearchitecture #modernarchitecture #urbanlandscape #paris #france #phonephotography #architecture

Reminiscing about our recent trip to New York, I was taken away by the beautiful architecture of the buildings all over the city. Alwyn Court, apartments and home of the Petrossian is majestic, located at 180 West 58th Street on the corner of Seventh Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. Just one block south of Central Park. It was built between 1907 and 1909, and was designed by Harde & Short in French Renaissance style. Truly breathtaking and so were the pastries I was eating from the bakery ! . . . . . #nyc #alwyncourt #petrossiannyc #architecture #frenchrenaissancearchitecture #midtownmanhattan #takemeback #designlovers #newyork #newyorkcity #manhattan #ilovenyc

Built in the heyday of the Upper East Side’s opulent Gilded Age mansions, the Gertrude Rhinelander Waldo House on Madison Avenue and 72nd Street was constructed between 1895-1898. The French Renaissance Revival building was inspired by the great 15th- and 16th-century chateaux of the Loire Valley in France. Rhinelander’s intention was to surpass the Vanderbilt mansion, and she made several trips to Europe to collect art and furniture to adorn her home. The ballroom furnishings alone cost $1 million and the grand room was lit by 1,000 lightbulbs. Interestingly, despite the great lengths Rhinelander went to to construct and acquire rich items to adorn her pseudo-chateau on the UES, she never actually moved in. And, though the crates containing all of her European goods were delivered, they were never opened and unpacked. Instead, Rhinelander chose to live across the street in a row house with her sister, and the mansion remained vacant until 1921. To learn more about the Upper East Side's splendid Gilded Age mansions—and their residents—join us for our "Upper East Side: A Clash of Titans" tour tomorrow, December 28th @ 1:00 PM or Thursday, January 3rd @ 1:00 PM. #bigoniontours #gertruderhinelanderwaldohouse #frenchchateaux #rhinelandermansion #renaissancerevival #frenchrenaissancearchitecture #gildedage #gildedagemansion #72ndstreet #madisonave #uppereastside #ues #nychistory #nycarchitecture #walkingtour

On Sunday we wanted to explore this beautiful French mansion. Unfortunately it was closed but we enjoyed the green landscape view all around. It's known as Los Moreau Palace, Castle Labadie, Old Labadie House, or any mix of these names including Palacete. It was a coffee plantation during the 19th century and a sugar mill at the beginning of the 20th century, with the names of Hacienda Labadie or Irurena. It is located in Moca in western Puerto Rico, and its 1,262 acres of land extend into the municipalities of Isabela, on the east, and Aguadilla, on the west. @callejeandopr @hashtagpuertorico • • • #LabadieMansion #LosMoreau #Palacete #PalaceteLosMoreau #CastilloLabadie #Mansion #frenchstyle #frenchmansion #Châteauesque #château #FrenchRenaissanceArchitecture #puertoricohistory #frenchhistory #rootsandculture #discoveringpr #seepuertorico #isladelencanto #roadtrip #historyinpictures #photographingeverything #hashtagpuertorico #mocapuertorico #Aguadilla #IsabelaPuertorico #exploring #turisteando #turismointerno #exploreyourcountry #puertoricoestacabron

The beautiful Central Library Building on the George IV Bridge, Edinburgh. This was the first public library in the city, opened in 1890. The foundation stone was laid by the Scottish American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who funded £50,000 for its construction . His motto , “Let there be light” is emblazoned just above the entrance . Four storeys of the building are below the bridge level . Architect George Washington Brown has designed this magnificent building in French Renaissance style, with much decorative imagery. There are engravings of the Scottish emblem, the unicorn , on the friezes . Another Scottish emblem, the national flower, the Thistle , stands proud on the gates , whose top border shows castle and anchor cut-outs. The ornate entrance lamps augment the beauty of the gates . One of the city’s beauties , for sure ! 🏫 🏫 🏫 #edinburgh #touristinedinburgh #indianinscotland #walking_shots #georgeivbridge #edinburghcentrallibrary #edinburghpubliclibrary #architecture #architectureanddesign #frenchrenaissancearchitecture #heritagearchitecture #historicalarchitechture #edinburgharchitecture #edinburghbuildings #andrewcarnegielibrary #andrewcarnegiegift #ihavethisthingaboutbuildings #buildinglove #buildingstodiefor #greatbuildings #beautifulbuilding #lampwednesday #lampenmittwoch #stopandstarebeauty #scottishchronicles

#FunFactFriday Designed by architects Weiss, Dreyfous and Seiferth in the French Renaissance Style, the French House stands out among LSU’s overwhelmingly palladian style campus. While the structure was surrounded on all sides by farmland when it was constructed in the 1930s, the French house is now the administrative and academic center of LSU’s bustling Ogden Honors College. Rather than being archaeologically significant, the building is primarily evocative of its loose mixing of medieval and residential French design styles. Early Medieval elements include the asymmetry of the front facade, the steep hip roof, and the octagonal tower containing narrow embrasures. The late Renaissance influence is portrayed in the modular articulation and segmental arching of the windows, baroque oculus dormers, and the entablatures over some of the doorways. The 3 acre area including the property was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 13, 1982. Since then, an extensive 5 million dollar renovation has restored the interior of the space to its current grandeur. "The French House" (PDF). State of Louisiana's Division of Historic Preservation.

Château de Chambord Commissioned by King Francis I and imagined by the great Leonardo da Vinci, the ‘Château de Chambord’ at Chambord, Loir-et-Cher, France is the largest and most majestic castle of the Loire. It is a symbol of the French Renaissance and of the power of a passionate ruler who revered the arts. ‘Château de Chambord’ is one of the most recognisable châteaux in the world because of its very distinctive French Renaissance architecture which blends traditional French medieval forms with classical Renaissance structures. French king Francois I (often Francis I in English) commissioned the building of ‘Château de Chambord’ as a hunting lodge in 1519. Although medieval in structure with a central keep, round bastions at the corners, two wings, two further towers and an enclosing curtain wall the execution of the building is Renaissance a style Francois became familiar with during his campaigns in Italy. The royal hunting lodge ‘Château de Chambord’ was favoured by kings fond of hunting such as Henry II and Louis XIV. Although ‘the lodge’ was never fully completed. Francois I died in 1547 and during his 32 year reign only spent 72 days at ‘Château de Chambord’. At the time of his death, only the keep and royal wing had been completed. His son, Henry II and later Louis XIV – both kings fond of hunting – continued construction at the castle. Louis XIV had some rooms altered at ‘Chambord’ to reflect his notions of what the royal protocol demanded. These State Apartments has a series of anterooms, staterooms, and private rooms as were customary at the 'Palace of Versailles'. As was customary with many royal chateaux during the sixteenth century, the rooms were only furnished for the duration of the king’s visits. It was only during the eighteenth century that ‘Château de Chambord’ was occupied continuously for any period of time. However, the castle remained a rather uncomfortably residence and was still lived in for only around 12 years. #neonurchin #neonurchinblog #dedicatedtothethingswelove #suzyurchin #ollyurchin #art #music #photography #fashion #film #words #pictures #neon #urchin #châteaudechambord #loir-et-cher #chambord #france

Château de Chambord At ‘Château de Chambord’ the salamander a small amphibian as comfortable in the water as on land is represented more than 300 times on ceilings and walls. The small creature was the emblem of Francis I with a crown and the motto “I eat the good fire, I put out the bad.” Popular belief had it that a salamander has the power to resist flames. Comprising 426 rooms, 83 staircases, 282 fireplaces the ‘Château de Chambord’ and its grandiose architecture rival that of the ‘Palace of Versailles’. History has not officially recorded the name of the architect responsible for the castle of ‘Chambord’ but the influence of Leonardo da Vinci, whom Francis I invited to live in France as "first painter, architect and engineer of the king" is indisputable. The central staircase, the innovative ventilation scheme and sealed double pit latrine system clearly bear his mark of genius. Set in the central axis of the castle it was a revolutionary design and an engineering masterpiece. The ingenious spiral open staircase joins various levels via two sets of steps set in a huge lantern-like case. You can ascend on one side without meeting or making eye contact with those who are descending on the other side. In the spring of 2017 ‘Château de Chambord’ renovated its grand gardens. Six hundred trees, eight hundred shrubs, two hundred roses and a whopping 15,250 plants filled the borders plus an immense 18,874 m² of lawns were replanted. This blitz of gardening followed 16 years of study for a restoration of almost identical gardens created in the rule of Louis XIV. The park at ‘Château de Chambord’ is as vast as inner Paris. It is the largest enclosed park in Europe: 5,440 hectares surrounded by 32 kilometres of walls. It is home to an exceptional range of flora and fauna. In fine weather you can follow more than 20 kilometres of trails which allow you to explore the enchanted woods. #neonurchin #neonurchinblog #dedicatedtothethingswelove #suzyurchin #ollyurchin #art #music #photography #fashion #film #words #pictures #neon #urchin #châteaudechambord #loir-et-cher #chambord #france #huntinglodge #castle #kingfrancoisI #frenchrenaissancearchitecture

Château de Chambord Time for a little bit of history. The first permanent resident at ‘Château de Chambord’ was the father-in-law of King Louis XV – Stanislaus Leszczynski, the disposed king of Poland. He stayed in ‘Chambord’ from 1725 to 1733 but after loosing the Polish throne a second time in 1736 preferred to stay in Lorraine. From 1745 to 1750, the Maréchal Maurice de Saxe lived in ‘Château de Chambord’ as reward for services rendered to the French army. This interesting character was the son of Saxon elector Augustus the Great. He was one of eight illegitimate children that Augustus acknowledged although rumours had the actual number over 350. He was hugely successful in the service of various European armies but it was in the French army that he really excelled and ended as marshal general of France. He died at ‘Chambord’ – probably pneumonia but according to gossip it could also have been as a consequence of a duel over the wife of another noble. At ‘Chambord’ Maruice de Saxe had ceilings lowered and rooms made smaller in an attempt to make it easier to heat the castle in winter. He introduced the tiled heaters brought over from his home country of Saxony. Much of ‘Chambord’ and its furnishings reflect the look from this period. After the French Revolution ‘Chambord' was stripped of its last furnishing and art. Even some of the floorboards and wood paneling were sold. The castle eventually ended up in private hands. The last notable owner of the chateau was the Comte de ‘Chambord' the last Bourbon, who owned the castle from 1821 until his death in 1883. The Bourbon line of succession became complicated during the nineteenth century. After the defeat of the Second French Empire by Prussia in 1871, the count was offered the French throne. He refused, as he was not prepared to accept the tri-colour as flag. France reverted to a republic. Although owning ‘Chambord’ for six decades and improving the estate, he spent only three days in the chateau. ‘Château de Chambord’ became national property in 1930. At the outbreak of the Second World War ‘Chambord’ housed several art works from the ‘Louvre’ including the ‘Mona Lisa’ and 'Venus de Milo’.
