The whole world of architecture is so vast and amazing. Many people probably don’t realize how many different actual styles there are and it doesn’t get the recognition and respect that it deserves in my opinion. Just take a look here to get a full list of all the different styles and a little background on them. It truly is an amazing field that does not get the appreciation from the general public that it so rightfully should receive.
Out of all the generations of different styles of architectural design, I would have to say that my favorite would have to be from the “dark” and middle age period in America. Some of the castles and buildings that were constructed at such a long time ago are absolutely mind boggling.
The amount of ingenuity and precision that would have to be implemented to make these structures stand is advanced even by today’s competitive standards. It really does amaze me how intelligent the human race was even at a time where they believed witches were real and that demons were the cause of mental illnesses. Hey, they had the best intentions right?
I don’t know what it is about this time period that fascinates me so much but I can’t help it. Although it wasn’t the best times for America, the work that went into these buildings is amazing and should be recognized as a beautiful time as far as the architecture goes.
