Know your architectural styles – Renaissance

In the period following the Gothic style up until the origin of the Baroque style, the Renaissance style of architecture was predominant. Among the different architectural styles, this is one that I knew the least about and so writing this post really helped me wrap my head around what the Renaissance style is all about. The term Renaissance means rebirth and refers to the reawakening of classical architecture.


This post is quite brief and touches upon the very basic aspects of Renaissance architecture. For further reading you can check out this book.
