Neo-Eclectic architecture

Neo-Eclectic architecture

One of any number of domestic modes of architecture during the second half of the 20th century that freely borrows from, but does not copy, an earlier traditional style and detailing, making little effort to be precise in imitating its prototype; some features of Post-Modern architecture can be called Neo-Eclectic. For examples, see Neo-Classical Revival, Neo-Colonial architecture, Neo-French, Neo-Mansard, Mediterranean Revival, Neo-Tudor architecture, Neo-Victorian.
