Introduction

Welcome to my French project on French architecture, French architecture is one of the richest and classiest architectural styles in the world it has also given some of the world’s best buildings there is quite a few things that distinguish French architect from all the rest like narrow windows coupled with wooden shutters, sloping roofs and a lot of arches. this is an example of a very French architectural building.

Now an example of a traditional architectural style would be burgundy in eastern France in burgundy they mostly use stone as a construction material. Traditional properties there would include farmhouses, half-timbered and winegrower houses.
