    Description:

    Center circle is top of sunken rotunda with Napoleon’s tomb below. In 1676 he was commissioned to build the church of the Hôtel des Invalides, after Libéral Bruand, who designed the rest of the complex, failed to produce a satisfactory scheme. For this almost monastic establishment for disabled soldiers, Hardouin Mansart created a bipartite building: the first part [Église St-Louis], a nine-bay nave for the pensioners, has a barrel vault and side aisles with tribunes opening through flatt…

    Description:

    The early 12th-century church of St. Front, Périgueux is a close copy either of San Marco in Venice or its model the Holy Apostles (destroyed) in Constantinople. Such a connection can only mean that the patrons were embarking on a bid to have Saint Front, a shadowy figure who converted the region in antiquity, raised to a status equivalent to that of the Apostles themselves. This bid was probably inspired because the church was one of the pilgrimage sites on the route to the Cathedral of Sant…

    Description:

    [The Sacré-Coeur Basilica is a Roman Catholic basilica and popular landmark in Paris, France, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre (Montmartre butte), the highest point in the city.] One of the more exotic variants on the Basilican form is Paul Abadie’s design for the Sacré-Coeur (1875-1919), Paris, which has a Greek-cross plan expressed in a Byzantine Revival style.

    Description:

    The tympanum depicting the city of Paris surrounded by muses is the work of sculptor Jean Antoine Injalbert.

    Girault had done temporary structures for Exposition Universelle, Paris, of 1889 and of 1900. He also erected two structures that were intended to outlast the 1900 exhibition: the Petit Palais, which was entirely his own work, and the Grand Palais, of which he was principal architect. The façades are interpretations of 18th-century French architecture and the Petit Palais in particula…

    Description:

    Early in 1755 Soufflot was appointed to provide plans for Ste Geneviève, the new church promised by Louis XV to house the reliquary of the city’s patron saint. A collection of drawings (Paris, Bib. N.) and Claude Boulleau’s engraving of 1764 show the building in its ‘ideal’ state in that year. Built partly over a crypt, where, for the first time, Soufflot used the Doric order of Paestum, it owes its grandeur to his use of the same colossal Corinthian order both inside and out….

    Description:

    In 1645 Mansart was appointed by the queen, Anne of Austria, to add a church and palace to the convent of the Val-de-Grâce, which she frequently visited on retreat. For this project Mansart devised a highly imaginative scheme based on the Escorial in Spain, where Anne had spent her youth. His design for the church was original in many respects, with bell-towers flanking the nave and a projecting single-storey entrance portico, more reminiscent of his château frontispieces than of a convention…

    Description:

    In 1862 Baltard was invited to design a new Parisian church, St Augustin, in which, for economy, an iron framework was used for the first time in a French church. The metal structure, made into a decorative feature, is readily apparent in the interior of the church and its lofty dome, while the masonry exterior combines an eclectic mix of Byzantine, Gothic and Baroque elements. To resolve the difficulties of the wedge-shaped site, bordered by two busy streets, Baltard placed the entrance at t…
