Copied from Paris' Palais Garnier?[edit]

I heard it stated that the 1875 built Palais Garnier was modeled closely after the Great Hall in the Library of Congress' Thomas Jefferson building. If true, this probably bears mentioning in one of the two articles. WilliamKF 16:47, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Picture of the day
Library of Congress Reading Room

The main reading room of the United States Library of Congress, located in the Thomas Jefferson Building, the oldest of its three buildings. Constructed between 1890 and 1897, the Beaux-Arts style building is known for its classicizing facade and elaborately decorated interior, designed during the "American Renaissance".
