Renaissance architecture

Isaac Kremer/ January 14, 2018/ / 0 comments

An architecture resulting from a rebirth of interest in, and knowledge of, earlier classic forms and from a revolt against medieval forms and habits. Starting in Italy in the 15th century, it spread throughout Europe, strongly affected by regional influences. Characterized by the re-use of the classic orders and emphasis on pictorial impact, Renaissance architecture is a generic term for widely differing design in Italy, England, France, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, and the Americas, up to the end of the 19th century.
