19th Century Architecture

19th Century Architecture was marked by significant changes in technology, society, and culture, which influenced the development of architecture. During the 19th century, several architectural styles emerged and evolved, including Neoclassicism, Gothic Revival, Beaux-Arts, Art Nouveau, and the beginning of Modern Architecture. Neoclassical architecture, inspired by ancient Greek and Roman styles, dominated the first half of the century, while the Gothic Revival style became increasingly popular in the latter half. The 19th century also saw the rise of industrialization, which brought about new construction materials and techniques, such as cast iron, steel, and reinforced concrete. These innovations allowed for the construction of taller and larger buildings and the development of new building types, such as factories, department stores, and skyscrapers.
