[R Furneaux Jordan; Bodo Cichy]. Neoclassical architecture is an architectural style produced by the Neoclassical movement that began in the midth century in Italy and France. The development of archaeology was crucial in the emergence of Neoclassical architecture. Excavation sites like those in Pompeii and Herculaneum allowed architects to make in depth interpretations of Classical architecture and synthesize their own.

The Greek Revival was an architectural movement of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, predominantly in Northern Europe and the United States.

It revived the style of ancient Greek architecture, in particular the Greek temple, with varying degrees of thoroughness and consistency.A product of Hellenism, it may be looked upon as the last phase in the development of Neoclassical architecture.

Greek Revival architecture was a building style that emerged in Europe and the United States in the late eighteen and early nineteenth centuries. It took elements of classical Greek architecture.

The earliest examples of disagreement regarding the race of the ancient Egyptians occurred in the work of Europeans and Americans early in the 19th century.

Western architecture - Western architecture - Ancient Greek: The increased wealth of Greece in the 7th century bc was enhanced by overseas trade and by colonizing activity in Italy and Sicily that had opened new markets and resources.

Athens did not send out colonists and did not engage in vigorous trade, and it declined as a cultural and artistic centre.

The most important artistic movement of Greek art in the 19th century was academic realism, often called in Greece "the Munich School" (Greek: Σχολή του Μονάχου) because of the strong influence from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Munich (German: Münchner Akademie der Bildenden Künste), where many Greek artists trained.

The Munich School painted the same sort of scenes in. Indeed, most vases produced in the 18th and 19th Centuries in Europe had shapes based on Greek and Roman vases.

Although Neoclassical decorative objects borrowed shapes and motifs from Classical antiquity, they used contemporary materials, including porcelain and ormolu, both of which had become popular during the 17th and 18th Centuries.

The topic of this semester is the 19th century architecture. Actually it is a longer period in the history of architecture than a century that™s why it is called the ‚long 19th century™. In this era the architecture and the art turned to the past, to the previous styles using them in a new approach.

Architecture - Architecture - Theory of architecture: The term theory of architecture was originally simply the accepted translation of the Latin term ratiocinatio as used by Vitruvius, a Roman architect-engineer of the 1st century ce, to differentiate intellectual from practical knowledge in architectural education, but it has come to signify the total basis for judging the merits of.

Western architecture - Western architecture - From the 19th to the early 20th century: The great change that occurred at the beginning of the 19th century, when the Gothic Revival moved from a phase of sentimental and picturesque attraction to one of greater archaeological exactitude, was determined largely by the research and publications of antiquarians.
