City of London
The revival of the British and Irish architecture of the 18th and early 19th centuries. It often depends for its effects on sash windows, symmetry, and carefully calculated proportions rather than on displays of columns and grand formal features. At its peak in the 1920s, it can be traced back to the late 19th century and is still current as a style mostly for private houses.
