- • A History Lesson:
- • What is Edwardian architecture? Edwardian Classicism is associated with the reign of an English monarch. Edward VII, son of Queen Victoria, reigned between 1901 and 1910. The style is a precursor to the simplified styles of the 20th century. Many of the Classical features - colonettes, voussoirs, keystones, etc. - are part of this style, but they are applied sparingly and with guarded understatement. Finials and cresting are absent. Cornice brackets and braces are block-like and openings are fitted with flat arches or plain stone lintels.
- • By 1900, most architecture was reflecting a revival of some sort from pre-Victorian times. Edwardian Classicism provided simple, balanced designs, straight rooflines, un-complicated ornament, and relatively maintenance-free detailing.
- • In the US, Edwardian is particularly popular in San Francisco, as this was a key time period during the city's development.
