Architectural Styles
VICTORIAN STYLE
The Victorian style evolved largely from
the imposing, elaborate Gothic style,
which appealed to the romantic
Victorian idea that fashion, architecture
and furnishings should be beautiful
rather than practical. A wealthy Victorian
woman's clothing, for example, involved
corsets. It made sense for the trendy
home designs to reflect that excess as
well. Manchester Town Hall (Manchester, England)

NEO-CLASSICAL STYLE
Neoclassical architecture was a reaction
to Rococo and Baroque architectural
styles. New discoveries of Greek and
Roman architecture led Neo- classical
period, which lasted 1850-1900. They
have clean, elegant lines, uncluttered
appearance, free standing columns, and
mostly associated with massive buildings
The ideal form that Neoclassical
architecture looks at was the temple.
Which was represented classical
architecture in its purest form.

Architectural Styles
ROMANESQUE STYLE
It is an architectural style of medieval
Europe characterized by semi-
circular arches. There is no consensus
for the beginning date of the
Romanesque style, with proposals
ranging from the 6th to the late 10th
century, this later date being the most
commonly held. It developed in the
12th century into the Gothic style,
marked by pointed arches.

Leaning Tower of Pisa (Pisa, Italy)

BRUTALIST STYLE
Named after its raw aesthetic, Brutalism in
modern architecture features elements of
strict linear design and repetitive
geometric shapes. The controversial style
rose to popularity in the 1950s and mostly
fell out of favor in the last few decades with
the exception of sporadic resurgences in
South America and the Middle East.

Architectural Styles
POSTMODERN STYLE
Postmodern architecture is a style or
movement which emerged in the 1960s as a
reaction against the austerity, formality,
and lack of variety of modern architecture.
The movement was given a doctrine by the
architect and architectural theorist Robert
Venturi in his 1966 book Complexity and
Contradiction in Architecture.

Sydney Opera House (Sydney, Australia)

DECONSTRUCTIVIST STYLE
Deconstructivism is a movement
of postmodern architecture which
appeared in the 1980s, which gives the
impression of the fragmentation of the
constructed building. It is characterized
by an absence of harmony, continuity, or
symmetry. Besides fragmentation, It often
manipulates the structure's surface skin
and creates by non-rectilinear shapes
which appear to distort and
dislocate elements of architecture.

Architectural Styles
HIGH-TECH STYLE
High-tech architecture, also known
as Late Modernism or Structural
Expressionism, is an architectural
style that emerged in the 1970s,
incorporating elements of high-tech
industry and technology into building
design. High-tech architecture
appeared as a revamped modernism,
an extension of those previous ideas
helped by even more technological
advances. This category serves as a
bridge between modernism and post-
modernism.
Turning Torso (Malmo, Sweden)

TUDOR STYLE
The Tudor architectural style is the final
development of Medieval architecture in
England, during the Tudor period (1485
1603) and even beyond, and also the
tentative introduction of Renaissance
architecture to England. It is generally
not used to refer to the whole period of
the Tudor dynasty. The four-centered
arch, now known as the Tudor arch, was a
defining feature.

INTERNATIONAL STYLE
The most common characteristics of
International Style buildings are said to
be: (a) rectilinear forms; (b) light, taut
plane surfaces that have been completely
stripped of applied ornamentation and
decoration; (c) open interior spaces (d) a
visually weightless quality engendered
by the use of cantilever construction.
Glass and steel, in combination with
usually less visible reinforced concrete,
are the characteristic materials of the
construction.
