Arts and Crafts

The Arts and Crafts movement in architecture, originating in the late 19th century, was a reaction against the Industrial Revolution’s mass-produced goods, emphasizing traditional craftsmanship, simple forms, and the use of natural materials. Pioneered by figures like William Morris and John Ruskin in the United Kingdom, it advocated for the artistic dignity of manual labor and the integration of the arts and crafts into daily life. This movement produced architectural designs that were often characterized by their robust and unadorned structures, with a focus on functionality and harmony with their natural surroundings.
