- Neoclassical Architecture -


About:

Neoclassical architecture is characterized by grandeur of scale, simplicity of geometric forms, Greek—especially
Doric or Roman detail, dramatic use of columns, and a preference for blank walls.
The new taste for antique simplicity represented a general reaction to the excesses of the Rococo style.
Neoclassicism thrived in the United States and Europe during the 18th and early 19th centuries, with examples occurring in almost every major city.

* I'm a bit suspicious of why there isn't already a thread about such a massive movement in classical architecture, so if there's any reason why, or if I've just missed a thread please tell me :)
