Neoclassical > Architecture > Intro

Neoclassical architecture often uses the orders of classical Greek and Roman architecture to achieve effects of balance and harmony.

But private homes and interiors were also decorated with geometric shapes, pillars and pilasters, and the characteristic rounded archways of Neoclassicism.
