Rocking Architectural Styles

Yaroslavskiy Moscow art nouveau
I don't know what it is about Art Nouveau that made me fall in love with it. The pure expression of the flowing lines is so intriguing. It also spans so many mediums aside from architecture, I can have a piece of Art Nouveau history in my home with simply a vase or a framed print.
2
deconstructivism
I love this style for its unpredictability. Each time I find a new building in this style it fascinates me. I have yet to visit the closest one on the MIT campus!
3
Expressionist architecture
Unpredictability again. It is unique, it is odd. Original. No two buildings are the same, or even similar. Sort of like me!
4
Classical Architecture
Classical rocks because of its predictability! I know, I know. Well I like opposites. Classical architecture is beautiful in a way Expressionist Architecture never could be.
5
Rococo interior
I like Rococo because it is insane! Imagine the hours and hours of work that went into all that gilded handwork, sculpture, and reliefs. I've seen a lot of Rococo work in person in the palaces of St. Petersburg and museums across Russia, nothing short of amazing! The interiors are even more impressive than Rococo exteriors.
6
Bauhaus architecture
Simplicity of form.
7
Art Deco
Intriguing ornament combined with simplicity of form.
8
International style
It is sort of like Modern Architecture but with a little more unpredictability. A bit classy and chic.
9
Modern architecture
It is all around us. My generation grew up with the modern style, witnessing it sprouting in cities world wide.
10
American craftsman style
Rocks simply because it is the coziest and the most livable/functional of all of the above!
