The Renaissance

This architectural style developed in early 15th century Italy during the rebirth of classical art and learning. It succeeded the Gothic as the style dominant in all of Europe after the mid 16th century into classicism.

Knowledge of the classical style in architecture was derived during the Renaissance from two sources: the ancient classical buildings, particularly in Italy but also in France and Spain and the treatise “De architectura” by the Roman architect Vitruvius. Initially it was characterized by the use of the classical orders, round arches, and symmetrical composition.

The Renaissance architects found a harmony between the proportions of the human body and those of their architecture. There was even a relationship between architectural proportions and the Renaissance pictorial device of perspective.

The concern1 of these architects for proportion caused that clear, measured2 expression and definition of architectural space and mass that differentiates the Renaissance style from the Gothic and encourages3 in the spectator an immediate and full comprehension of the building.

Churches, palaces, gardens, and well-organized open, urban spaces are the architectural works most often associated with this time. Great skill was expressed in ordering the interior of buildings, frequently using the same motifs as had been traditionally associated with the exterior.

Filippo Brunelleschi4 (1377-1446) is said to have created the Renaissance. In the early 15th century he formulated linear perspective, which was to become a basic element of Renaissance art. His basic vocabulary – fluted pilasters carrying entablatures5, columns supporting arches, unribbed vaults which are portions of the surface of a sphere – appears in his brilliant work, Ospedale degli Innocenti6 (1419-51) in Florence. It was the first building in the Renaissance manner.

The austere Tuscan Doric7 façade of Donato Bramante’s (1444-1514) Tempietto San Pietro8 in Montorio (1502) symbolized the beginning of the early 16th century High Renaissance in Rome.

The Italian Renaissance is assumed to have achieved the highest degree of perfection at that time. In 1505 Pope9 Julius II decided to demolish Old St. Peter’s and to build St. Peter’s Cathedral, the work of many architects, beginning with Bramante, whose ground plan10 was later changed from a Greek cross to a Latin cross. St. Peter’s Cathedral is the largest church in the high Christian world. It has 29 altars in addition to the high altar, interior length 187 m., width at front, 26,5 m., length of transept, 137 m. The dome (diameter, 42 m., height, 123 m. to the top of the lantern) was built by Michelangelo.

Baroque and Rococo

Baroque and late Baroque, or Rococo, are terms applied to European art of the period from the early 17th century to the mid 18th century.

The word “baroque” was derived from the Italian word “baroque”. This word also meant irregular or imperfect form, especially with reference to pearl.

The Baroque style is characterized by spatially complex compositions, interpenetration11 of oval spaces, curved surfaces and remarkable use of decoration broken pediments, paired or coupled columns or pilasters. The Baroque art was essentially concerned with vivid12 colours, hidden13 light sources, luxurious materials and elaborate14, contrasting surface textures. There was a tremendous richness of motifs-festoons of flowers and fruits, masks, scrolls, wreaths and weapons. During the Baroque period, architecture, painting and sculpture were integrated into decorative ensembles. Architects used sculpture to support the members of a building, painters decorated the walls and vaults of churches with false architectural perspectives, sculptors introduced colour in their works in the spirit of a painter.

The Baroque rapidly developed into two separate forms: the strongly Roman Catholic counties (Italy, Spain, Portugal, Flanders, Bohemia, Southern Germany, Australia and Poland) tended toward freer and more active architectural forms and surfaces; in Protestant regions (England, the Netherlands and the remainder of Northern Europe) architecture was more restrained15 and developed a quiet monumentality impressive in its refinement16.

The greatest works of this style are Dome des Invalides by Hardouin-Mansart 17(1); the church of Santa Susanna (2); Versailles (3); Royal Palace in Madrid (4); Royal Palace at Caserta (5).

1) 2) 3) 4) 5)

The Rococo is assumed to have been the late phase of the Baroque, primarily French in origin. The style was first inspired by the shell-encrusted artificial fountains and grottoes at Versailles. This style refined the robust18 architecture of the 17th century to suit elegant 18th century tastes. Vivid colours were replaced by pastel shades; diffuse19 light flooded the building volume; violent surface relief was replaced by smooth flowing masses with emphasis only at isolated points. One can find intermingling20 of shells, C - and S - scrolls21, rocks, seaweed22, ribbons and carving and irregular acanthus foliation23. Churches and palaces still demonstrated an integration of the three arts, but the building structure was lightened to render interiors graceful and ethereal24. Rococo architects reduced column size to a minimum. In churches, the ceilings of side aisles were raised to the height of the nave ceiling unify the space from wall to wall.

The finest examples of the Rococo style are Church of the "Madonna del Carmine", Turin, Italy (1732) (1); The Steinhausen Church of Pilgrimage, Germany (1728) (2); Saint - Jacques, Luneville, France (1730) (3).

High-tech style


High-tech style embraces an industrial look, in which the decor and the building itself are obviously very influenced by technology. High-tech buildings are often created from such materials as heavy steel girders25, a metal deck plate26, metal shelves often seen in hospitals and factories, and a concrete structure. The outside of the building, instead of being opaque27, is often made entirely of windows or mirrored glass, not stressing the decorative outside of the building but revealing the skeleton of the building itself.


High-tech style can be seen in almost any city in the world.

One of the most well-known examples of high-tech style is the Swiss Re building28 in London – more commonly known as The Gherkin29, because of its distinctive, peaked shape. Designed by British architect Norman Foster, the building is the sixth tallest in London, and stands out from the background of centuries-old buildings from miles around. The Gherkin was opened in 2004, and has been featured in a number of television shows and movies, quickly becoming one of London's most recognized modern symbols. Also in London is the Lloyd's Building, which is unique as all of its staircases, elevators, ventilation shafts and piping are on the outside of the building.
Another well-known example is the Bank of China Tower, located in Hong Kong. Designed by architect I.M. Pei, the building was designed to resemble tall, slender shoots of bamboo.

^ The Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, France, is the home to a massive library, as well as to IRCAM30, a centre for music research. Color-coded pipes and ventilation shafts figure predominantly on the outside of the building.

^ Munich's Olympic Stadium also displays a unique high-tech style, with steel cables and domes of glass that were designed to represent mountains and a newer, more modern Germany.


High-tech style made its first appearances after World War II. Much of Europe – from England all the way across the continent – had been ravaged31 by war, leaving countless buildings destroyed. When the time came to rebuild, designers and architects replaced many of the old edifices32 with ones done in a forward-thinking, new style that was intended to show something new rising from the ashes of destruction.

Also, the postwar era was a time when scientific advances were taking the world by storm, from advances in industrial and medical practices to science and technology. This new world was undeniable33, and was reflected heavily in the buildings that were being developed at the time.

The name "high-tech style" came about in 1978, and was coined34 by a pair of home-design specialists: Joan Kron and Suzanne Slesin. Their book, "High Tech: The Industrial Style and Source Book for The Home," shared ideas for bringing the high-tech look into the home.

^ High-Tech in the Home

High-tech style isn't just for the outside of a building; it's also hugely popular indoors as well.

The style stresses an industrial look. Pipes can be worked into the decor of the home, instead of hidden in a cupboard or closet. Elements of a high-tech room can include factory lighting; partial room dividers made of glass bricks; warehouse or hospital shelving35 painted in flamboyant colors; work benches for countertops36; and office chairs for furniture. Steel appliances and even dishes can accent the style, as can geometric patterns in floors and walls.


High-tech style came about when architects and designers were looking for a way to liven up modern architecture. In many places, any sort of modern architecture had been replaced with economy buildings, as well as homes, apartment buildings and office buildings that appeared to have been made from a mold37. The high-tech style not only showed a rebellious attitude on the part designers who were willing to try something completely different, but also displayed impressive faith in what was to come. Technological advances were on everyone's mind, and this high-tech style leaned away from traditional architecture and more toward science fiction and the world of tomorrow.

2) What are the typical features of this style?

Futurism was an artistic and social movement that originated in Italy in the early 20th century. It emphasized and glorified themes associated with contemporary concepts of the future, including speed, technology, youth and violence, and objects such as the car, the airplane and the industrial city. It was largely an Italian phenomenon, though there were parallel movements in Russia, England and elsewhere. The Futurists practiced in every medium of art, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, graphic design, industrial design, interior design, theatre, film, fashion, textiles, literature, music, architecture and even gastronomy.

Key figures of the movement include the Italians Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà, Gino Severini, Giacomo Balla, Antonio Sant’Elia, Tullio Crali and Luigi Russolo, and the Russians Natalia Goncharova, Velimir Khlebnikov, and Vladimir Mayakovsky. Important works include its seminal piece of the literature, Marinetti’s Manifesto of Futurism, as well as Boccioni’s sculpture, Unique Forms of Continuity in Space, and Balla’s painting, Abstract Speed + Sound (pictured). Futurism influenced art movements such as Art Deco, Constructivism, Surrealism, Dada38, and to a greater degree, Rayonism39 and Vorticism40.
