Neo-Classicism

(1900–1920)
A revival stylebased primarily on Greek and to a lesser extent on Roman orders, producing symmetrically arranged buildings of monumental proportions. Colossal pedimented porticos were flanked by a series of pilasters. The arch was not used, and enriched moldings are rare. The preference was for simple geometric forms and smooth surfaces. The design was based on the assembly of separate volumes, each dedicated to a single function.
