Kind of, but not really. Greek Revival architecture is more distinctive in the United States, where it was arguably most popular. It was especially popular in residential architecture. Peaking from 1825-1850, it is most well-known for its temple fronts.

Greek Revival architecture is distinct from Federal, Georgian, Adamesque, Palladian, or others, all of which are variations of Neoclassical architecture.
