Architectural Movement and Styles
Architectural movements are trends that emerged in certain periods and geographies and reflect the understanding of architectural design. These can change over time and affect each other. For example; Classical Architecture, Gothic Architecture, Baroque Architecture, Neoclassical Architecture, Bauhaus and Modern Architecture.
We wanted to give some more detailed definitions about Classical Architecture, Gothic Architecture and Neoclassical Architecture. These architectural movements, which are among the most preferred in the world, are still widely used today.
- Classical Architecture: It is an architectural movement that emerged in the Ancient Greek and Ancient Roman periods and can be defined by elements such as regular geometric shapes, columns, frontons. This movement spread to Europe with the spread of the Roman Empire and formed the basis of many architectural works in a process starting from the middle ages to the baroque period. Classical architecture is a style that reflects values such as power, harmony and civilization and is still popular today.
- Gothic Architecture: It is an architectural movement that emerged in some regions of Europe between the 12th and 16th centuries. Gothic architecture, unlike classical architecture, is defined by its features such as thinner and longer columns, irregular wall openings, very high and hollow domes. In addition, the use of glasswork to create a strong and bright interior is also unique to gothic architecture. This movement allowed the creation of works such as ostentatious churches, cathedrals and palazzos in Europe.
- Neoclassical Architecture: It is an architectural movement that emerged in Europe and in USA between the 18th and 19th centuries. It is based on the artistic and cultural influences of the Classical Greek and Roman periods and includes the design elements of the works of these periods. Neoclassical architecture uses elements such as regular geometric shapes, symmetrical appearance, columns, frontons, and trillions. This movement was widely used in the design of buildings such as government buildings, palaces and opera houses in Europe and the USA.
Architectural styles, on the other hand, are architectural tones that belong to a certain architectural movement and reflect the characteristics of this movement. Styles can emerge in different geographies and time periods within a movement. For example, Gothic styles include French Gothic, English Gothic, and German Gothic.
