When it comes to architecture, there is nothing more iconic than the Gothic Revival.
It is so timeless, and so iconic, that the term Gothic Revival was coined by British architect Thomas Moore to describe the style of architecture that was created for the revival period of the 19th century.
The Gothic Revival began in 1876 and has been continuously evolving ever since.
The Revival period was the period that was ushered in by the Industrial Revolution.
There were two main eras of the Gothic revival.
The first was from the mid-1800s to the late 1900s.
This period was also known as the Great Gothic Revival, or GGR.
This was a period when the streetscape was full of Gothic Revival architecture.
The second period is known as “Post-Gothic” or the Post-Grunden Revival, which is when modernist architecture and styles started taking hold.
For most people, the term Post-gothicism refers to modernist buildings that are still being built and designed by artists and designers who specialize in a specific period.
Architects and landscape architects like Norman Foster, Peter Paul Rubens, and Frank Lloyd Wright were all active during this period, as were architects like Frederick Law Olmsted and Robert Graves, who created the most influential urban landscapes of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
After the GGR, architecture and landscape designers started making a shift to modernism.
Modernist architecture has always been a subculture of architecture, but it began to become more prevalent in the 1970s.
The shift coincided with the explosion of the internet and social media.
These were the days when most of the people in the world were watching television, and this changed how people viewed architecture.
As the internet revolution took off in the 1990s, many of these styles began to disappear.
The styles that were once seen as mainstream and considered classic were now considered trendy and outdated.
While it is true that the styles have changed over time, the trends and trends that are associated with Gothic Revival are still very recognizable.
