is the Boston Public Library ???[edit]

Is the Boston Public Library really designed and built in the neo-classical style? I hate to jump in and start slashing other folks work, but, I don't think that it is neo-classical. Carptrash 07:45, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

for the record, I'd be much happier with something along the lines of 'Renaissance Revival'. But then not everyone agrees that the point of the universe is to make me happy, so I'm tossing this out for a more general discussion.
Quite right. "Renaissance Revival" is the better style designation. The arcaded windows owe a debt to the side elevations of Alberti's Tempio Malatestiana, Rimini. --Wetman 18:10, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
Well, as Alberti himself would have said, "grazie." Carptrash 18:40, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
