Henri IV (Quatre) style
The early phase of the Classical period of French architecture, named after Henry IV (1589–1610), preceding the architecture of Louis XIII and Louis XIV. It is particularly strong in domestic architecture and town-planning arrangements. The Place des Vosges in Paris (1605–12) is the outstanding example. (See illustration p. 504.)
