Rocco architecture, also referred to as rococo or late baroque, is a flamboyant, ornate, layered and intricate style of architectural design that evolved in the late baroque or French period, and which subsequently became popular in the rest of the world. It combines elements of traditional tile styles from Italian, Spain and the French with nouveau riche decorative patterns from Great Britain, Holland, Germany and Italy. This style is characterized by large, often domed structures that are built up around a central point, but which have a much greater depth of design and detail than most typical modernist architecture. The buildings are built up around this central point usually by means of large colonnades which provide the framework of the building. The roof is normally a tier structure that extends to the exterior of the building.
The term rococo architecture actually came from the French word root, meaning “rosary” – a kind of cross, hence the idea of using stucco in the construction of buildings. The idea of using stucco in building emerged from the efforts of Napoleon III to erect buildings on his Grande Arreau estate in France, where stucco was used as a main building material, instead of mortar. The idea was to construct a more impressive structure and a more impressive interior decoration. Stucco, as it turns out, has several historic uses. Its use as a building material had begun long before the French Revolution, when the French used it to strengthen their walls, fortify their palaces, raise the roofs and make the interiors of their houses more impressive.
The decorative techniques used in rococo architecture are considered highly religious by many architects and historians. They are especially fond of using contrasting colours, unusual textures and designs. Most of these buildings are decorated using metalwork, bricks, stucco finishes or other decorative effects. There is no particular style in this kind of architecture; rather, it is a combination of various decorative techniques that are used to create very appealing effects.
A few important characteristics of late baroque and rococo architecture are the use of a lot of gold ornaments. These were embedded on the walls and ceilings or decorating the entrances of palaces or churches. Another characteristic is the prevalence of rustic elements in this kind of decoration. People who worked in the churches and the parishes where this style emerged felt that it was a great hindrance against modernism. Thus they used this style sparingly in order to preserve the traditional values.
One of the most fascinating features of rococo architecture is its ornamentation motifs. As we can observe in the palaces of ancient Palaces of the Mughal Empire for instance, the ornamentation consisted of lots of precious stones, metals and jewels. Similarly in churches, the vase head of the Virgin Mary or the portrait of Jesus Christ was decorated with precious stones. The usage of such ornamental items became more common during the late baroque periods. In fact, the use of decorative arts had become so widespread that the artists also started developing residential buildings like villas, manors, palaces and churches out of this type of architecture.
When the style started developing in the 17th century, the artists developed new ways to enhance the visual effects of the decoration motifs. This resulted in the development of the fine arts in this period. People’s tastes for art started increasing and the artists started developing new types of decorative arts based on them. In the early part of the 18th century, art collectors started searching for fine arts that were based on the works of these architects. The discovery of the fine arts of this era paved the way for the popularity of the rococo style of decoration.
In order to understand the effects of this decorative art in the early renaissance period, we have to know the role of the stucco masters of the time. Stucco was a highly popular medium at the time of the Renaissance because of its cheap price and availability. It was often used as an adornment for mansions and palaces of the time because of its cheap price. Many of the architectural wonders of Europe were built with the help of stucco masters. They not only perfected the application of the stucco by creating intricate patterns, but they also created unique pictures by using stucco masterpieces in their artwork.
The style continued to evolve in different areas of Europe during the early modern era. Some of the most famous structures in Europe that are a great example of the rococo architecture include the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Palais de Justice at Bon Voyage des Castres, The Louvre in Paris, The Chateau de Versailles, The Cathedral of San Lorenzo in Venice, The Chateau de Versailles, The Grand Palace in Barcelona, The Spanish Royal Palace in Madrid, The Roman Theatre in Naples and many others. Today, these buildings continue to inspire us with their beauty and richness of history. They are a great example of the beautiful art that came out of the Venice Renaissance era. The term “rococo architecture” is also commonly used to refer to other forms of medieval architecture that are a great example of the style such as the Baroque style.
