Beaux Arts

Term Definition
Beaux Arts
The Beaux Arts style is based on French architecture of the late 19th century. Beaux Arts buildings are usually of light-colored masonry and often display classical detailing such as columns or pilasters. While they have many of the same details found on other classically inspired buildings, Beaux Arts buildings are characterized by their preponderance of surface decoration, which can include decorative garlands, floral patterns, or shield motifs. Roof-line balustrades of masonry are also common.
