Neoclassical Architecture

Neoclassical Architecture is an architectural style that emerged in the late 18th and early 19th centuries and is characterized by the revival of classical Greek and Roman forms and motifs. The style is inspired by ancient Greek and Roman buildings, with elements such as columns, pediments, and domes being used extensively in buildings. Neoclassical architecture often features symmetrical facades, grand entranceways, and a restrained use of ornamentation. The style was widely used for public buildings, such as government buildings, museums, churches, and private residences. Some of the most notable examples of Neoclassical architecture include the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, the White House in Washington D.C., and the Trevi Fountain in Rome.
