New Classical architecture

New Classical architecture, New Classicism or the New Classical movement is a contemporary movement in architecture that continues the practice of Classical architecture. It is sometimes considered the modern continuation of Neoclassical architecture,[1][2][3] even though other styles might be cited as well, such as Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance or even non-Western styles.[4]

The design and construction of buildings in ever-evolving classical styles is continuous throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, even as modernist and other non-classical theories broke with the classical language of architecture. The new classical movement is also connected to a surge in new traditional architecture, that is crafted according to local building traditions and materials.[5]
