Classicism and the Empire style

Symmetry. Clean, simple lines. Antique motifs. Beauty, harmony, the ideal. All these are hallmarks of the Classicist and Empire styles.

Enter a dream world, the endless search for the ideal! Our forebears found this ideal in the form of Classicism and the Empire style. These sober, simple styles, preferring strict symmetry, were the exact opposite of the restless, curvy Baroque. They were applied in urban design and the architecture of newly-built theatres and spas.
