🕰 ARCHITECTURE STYLES BEHIND NYC LANDMARKS ✨
Dozens of architecture styles surround each other from different periods in history, artistic movements, and architectural philosophies to create the unique skyline of New York City.
🤓 Beaux-Arts – Grand Central Station
“Grand Central Station, located in Midtown Manhattan, was constructed between 1903 and 1913 by two architectural firms, Reed & Stem, and Warren & Wetmore. The Beaux-Arts characteristics of Grand Central Station include the symmetrical columns and the embedded statues and figures on the facade of the main entrance.
Originating in France in the 19th century, the ancient-looking, historical revival style of Beaux-Arts evolved from French classicism as a result of new technologies and modern materials. Beaux-Arts merges the grand essence of classicism’s columns, with the Renaissance style and technological advances; specifically the use of steel and glass to allow light. Beaux Arts puts an emphasis on symmetry, columnar support, and triangular pediments.”
