Architectural style

Post  be_map1512 on 16th October 2010, 14:35

Architectural styles classify architecture in terms of form, techniques, materials, time period, region, etc. It overlaps with, and emerges from the study of the evolution and history of architecture. In architectural history, the study of Gothic architecture, for instance, would include all aspects of the cultural context that went into the design and construction of these structures. Architectural style is a way of classifying architecture that gives emphasis to characteristic features of design, leading to a terminology such as Gothic "style".

The Victoria and Albert Museum maintains an interactive online microsite with an introductory overview[1] of ten architectural styles grouped in four clusters:

* Modern, High-Tech and Postmodern
* East Asian, South Asian and Spanish Islamic
* Gothic and Gothic Revival
* Classical and Classical Revival.
