This trip was not much different from other trips, again we analyzed more of the neighborhood’s architecture and they’ve evolved . we observed historic structure, which in my opinion is safe to deem magnificent architecture. These architectures were of course revival, which means the mimic   of visual styles that echoes the previous styles of architecture. We observed both Romanesque and Roman style architecture while touring the neighborhood. The Roman style of architecture consist of the following characteristics, arches, vaults, dome, concrete and mostly circular columns. Romanesque has similar Characteristics, but an additive of Byzantine and other local traditions that consists of massive quality, thick walls, round arches, sturdy pillars, barrel vaults, large towers and decorative arcade.  Gothic revival was another style we were privileged to witness. The Characteristics are as follows, pointed arches used for windows, doors, and decorative elements like porches, dormers, or roof gables. These detailed and artistic historic architectures require physical and time-consuming labor.

We also acknowledged the new era of construction also known as, “postmodern architecture.”  Which are typically vertical extruded geometry, mostly rectangular, with glass facades, called curtain wall. We established these types of architecture requires less labor work. These projects are mostly office buildings and some luxuries apartments. The demographics appears to have shifted dramatically as these new forms of architecture are made affordable to affluent individuals.
