he European styles of art are heavily influenced by literature, music, architecture and philosophy, and as these factors change and evolve, so does Europe stylistically. Within the era of Elizabeth I, the architecture was heavily inspired by European architecture between 14th century and the 17th century. Moreover, this also matches the Renaissance in France and the Cinquecento in Italy. In addition to this, it mimicked the style of the Tudor architecture and popularised in the 17th century due to its stylistic expansion.One European style of art is the Romanesque art, from the period from approximately 1000 AD to the start of Gothic art in the twelfth century. Romanesque art is forward, bold and vibrant with vivid colours and a touch of sophistication. The art formed itself as stained glass, sculptures and architecture.
Its architecture consists of broad, deep walls, curved arches and stained windows and lots of sculpted decorations. Traditions have come to evolve with every generation and era and they shape the architecture of that generation. The influences of change come from other cultures and traditions.
A great example is the Tudor houses that were built in the 16th century that are still standing strong today and still remain a key design for architecture in the UK tradition. The Islamic movement is known globally for its adoption of Arabian influenced designs and its Turkish inspired architecture. The movement is a global phenonium which brought together culture and religion within forms of art. Furthermore, the Islamic movement reached all continents and infused its styles with the styles of the land it was in through art and architecture; keeping it unique in contrast to the neighbouring country’s designs. A great example is in Turkey, the Ottoman art is one of the most influential and significant elements in Turkish and historical art. The Islamic architecture covers both a secular and religious style from the history of Islam to the current day.
Although having some unique factors like it’s geometric and complex patterns and styles, it does take from Persian, Chinese and Indian traditions as Islam was established near North and East Africa and East Asia.In conclusion, it has been marked throughout recent history the iconic development of the Houses of Parliament’s interior space and architecture. It has therefore defined the traditions and structural development of the buildings that represent England.
Moreover, the historical theories and concepts related to the architecture have given the buildings more depth and worth. The movements, styles and traditions in Europe and the Islamic world have also contributed to the architectural art around us, thus making it significant in both the western and Islamic world.
