In the history of architecture, it is interesting to understand the central movements and consecrated styles that have arisen over time as a reaction to the continuity or rupture of the relations produced.


Hendrick Kganyago Only by knowing and understanding one of the phenomena that have led to this can one help to create a more comprehensive overview of what humanity has produced over the years.

Here we present some of the most influential architectural styles and movements of history, their peculiarities and singularities. For the purposes of this architectural field guide styles are associated with key phases of development, from the 18th century colonial period to the modern movement of the 20th century. There are 8 recognized architectural styles that are applied to many popular buildings around the world.

Hendrick Kganyago Architectural styles are a generic term that includes several different styles that gained importance in the first half of the 20th century. This type of architecture refers to the styles used in ancient Greece and Rome. This architectural style is a minimalist style practiced by many architects before and during the Second World War.

This architectural style prioritizes simplicity of form, clean structures and a lack of ornaments over function and form. This style fell out of favor in the late 20th century as an architectural style, but its appearance is still sought after by modern homeowners in the US and UK.

The origins of the colonial living style dating back to the 17th century date when European settlers let their houses be inspired by the architecture of their country. The style of living dates back further to the 19th century, when American settlers began to experiment with architectural designs focused on symmetry.
