Updated Timeline

This is an updated timeline of ornament in architecture. I thought it would be interesting to include various styles of architecture and the periods of time when they were most present. Also, the shift towards reducing ornament in architecture has been noted, beginning during the 1850's. Some quotes have been included as well, describing the shift towards the reduction of ornament from the book Architectural Ornament: Banishment and Return, written by Brent C. Brolin.


  1. Nice work, Sonia. Any way I can view this timeline in a bit higher resolution? Cheers!

    1. Thanks for your comment Steve! Unfortunately, no matter how high the resolution of the original image is, blogger always seems to reduce the quality.
