- I'm going to go ahead and make this change, as the genre property is being applied to people as well as works, and this is analogous. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 11:33, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
Dangerous mix / des choux et des carottes
English: I think that there could be a risk in allowing objects of this property to be a structure or an architect. One day, if we request for all items for which style is Art nouveau, we will get a completely heterogeneous list, that we will have to intersect with other properties another property. I wonder if we should have here 2 distinct properties: has the style and practices the style
Français : Je pense qu'il peut y avoir un risque à mélanger le type des objets possibles pour cette propriété : structure ou architecte. Lorsqu'on va faire des requêtes pour savoir tout ce qui est de style Art Nouveau, on se trouvera avec une liste complètement hétérogène, qu'il faudra intersecter avec une autre propriété, en espérant qu'elle soit bien instanciée pour tous les éléments pour avoir une liste exploitable. Je me demande si nous ne devrions pas avoir ici deux propriétés différentes : est de style et pratique le style.

- Should not cause a problem, the correct way to query and get the expected results would be to select items with GND = geographical feature and architectural style = Art nouveau. – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Danrok (talk • contribs) at 14:47, 19 May 2013 (UTC).
Confusion with P31 (instance of)
It’s not clear to me whether to use this property (P149) or P31 (instance of) for buildings. I see the phrase “xxx building is an example of yyy architecture” — which to me suggests that I should use 'instance of'.
Also, since most of the architectural styles are in the form “Name architecture”, it feels redundant to say “Architectural style: Neoclassical architecture” (for example).
- instance of (P31) is (ab)used for a lot of claims. A building can have half a dozen of P31's based on use and structural type, let's not put more into it when this property is available. /ℇsquilo 08:26, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
I would like to propose to merge this property with movement (P135). The only difference beteween the two properties is that architectural style (P149) is restricted to some classes of items but that does not seem very useful, and in practice, p135 is used for buildings as well anwyway (compare fr:Catégorie:Page utilisant des données de Wikidata/P149 and fr:Catégorie:Page utilisant des données de Wikidata/P135). --Zolo (talk) 09:09, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
