Category: Stone Art and Architecture

Since the dawn of civilization, the relationship between Art and Architecture has been deeply intertwined. Over the years, technological advancements have created stunning works of art and magnificent architectural structures. Architecture, in particular, is an art form that exudes grandeur and elegance. Similar to how we classify classical music into different eras, we can also trace the evolution of architecture through a timeline that spans thousands of years, with each period marked by distinct styles and techniques. From the ancient pyramids of Egypt to the towering skyscrapers of today, architecture has always reflected human creativity and ingenuity. To understand how architecture has evolved, we have classified it into different eras, each leaving its unique signature:

  • Classic Architecture: The year 1000 CE marks the end of this period of architecture. In this Era, we have classified periods extending backward to the 7th Century BCE. Monuments like the Colosseum in Rome and the Parthenon in Greece belong to this Era.
  • Romanesque Architecture: 1000 CE to 1170 CE.
  • Gothic Architecture: 1100 CE to 1450 CE.
  • Renaissance Architecture: 1400 CE to 1600 CE.
  • Baroque Architecture: 1600 CE to 1755 CE.
  • Rococo Style (Late Baroque): 1730 CE to 1800 CE.
  • Neo-Classical Architecture: 1750 CE to 1920 CE.
  • Art Deco Style in the USA: 1920 CE to WW2. The Empire Estate, New York, is an outstanding example.
  • Modern Style: 1917 CE to 1965 CE.
  • Post-Modernism: 1950 CE to 2007 CE.
  • Parametric Architecture: 1997 CE onwards.

Transitioning from one artistic style to another has always left a lasting impact. Art forms have seamlessly blended from sculpture to architecture, leaving their mark on each period. Natural stone can bring human and natural beauty to life. It has always been the material of choice for centuries. Its enduring presence has connected art and architecture, leaving an inspirational legacy for future generations to admire and appreciate.
