Classical Architecture

More often than not Classical Architecture denotes the type of Architecture that has been consciously derived from certain fundamentals of Greek and Roman architecture. If we take a closer look at the Italian Renaissance, we can see a clear glimpse of Classical Architecture in it. In fact, it is this Architectural style that has dominated from The Renaissance period until the Second World War. Without question it is the classical antiquity that has been considered as the prime source of inspiration for much of the Western Modern Architectural endeavors. If we do have to name a famous Architect, it would be none other than Andrea Palladio who in more than one occasion has said that he drew inspiration from ancient Roman Architecture. Here, in Sigma College of Architecture, one of the top Architectural colleges in South India, we pay homage to such inspiring Architects that lived all through time.  A unique feature of Classical Architecture is petrification; which is the process by which primitive wooden appearance is reflected on stone fabric of new buildings. This process was initially created to preserve earliest temple structures which were made of wood.
