Features of European architectural style
1. Gothic architectural style
When it comes to the Gothic architectural style, the first thing people think of is Notre Dame de Paris. This is because of the well-known world-famous work “Notre Dame de Paris”, and the French writer Hugo devoted himself to writing this stalwart and atmospheric building. Gothic architecture first originated in France. Gothic churches are tall and open, mostly with pointed arches, etc., and large-area stained glass windows are often installed.
2. Baroque architectural style
The most famous architecture in the Italian Renaissance period is the Baroque architecture. Its shapes are more complex, dynamic, and bizarre. They often use contrasting colors and oval spaces to express freedom.
3. Ancient Roman architectural style
In ancient Rome, people worshiped great gods and instilled this kind of worship into architecture. For example, the Pantheon, Venus Temple, and large theaters in Rome. The ancient Roman architectural style is dignified and vigorous, and the style is relatively uniform, but the style is changeable. 4. Neoclassical architectural style
The neoclassical architectural style was popular during the reign of French kings Louis XIII and XIV. It retained the structural rigor of classical architecture. The representative works of neoclassicism mainly include the Louvre in Paris, the Palace of Versailles and so on.
