The Renaissance architecture was the “new birth of learning” that arrived in Europe some five hundred years ago. The Renaissance does not bring new ideas into architecture. However, it encourages the study of the classical styles of Greece and Rome, which improves the architectural design of modern architecture. Up to fifty or seventy-five years ago, the only developments in architecture for hundreds of years had been designing. About two hundred years ago, Robert Adam designed the simple single-walled residence he built in London, England. Cities in Europe and America then copied that architectural design. At the same time, the American “colonial house” was built not only in all of New England, but throughout the country, and in the “Southern House” with its high pillars or wooden columns.
