Neoclassical Architecture - Emma

This Style of architecture was produced as a response to the Rococo design which included overly exagerated naturalistic designs. It was a modified version of ancient Greek architecture which includes pillars, heavy stone. light and shadow being made more 'flat', and more clean lines as opposed to the ornate twists and turns of Rococo (a post Renaissance design).
