architecture / arkkitehtuuria I

Renaissance Revival around Kotka church.

Renaissance Revival (sometimes referred to as "Neo-Renaissance") is an all-encompassing style designation that covers many aspects of 19th century architectural revival styles which were neither Grecian (see Greek Revival) nor Gothic (see Gothic Revival) but which instead drew inspiration from a wide range of classicizing Italian modes. Under the broad designation "Renaissance architecture" nineteenth-century architects and critics went beyond the architectural style which began in Florence and central Italy in the early 15th century as an expression of Humanism; they also included styles we would identify as Mannerist or Baroque. Self-applied style designations were rife in the mid- and later nineteenth century: "Neo-Renaissance" might be applied by contemporaries to structures that others called "Italianate", or when many French Baroque features are present (Second Empire).

Uusrenessanssi oli rakennus- ja sisustustaiteessa sekä taideteollisuudessa 1800-luvun jälkipuolella esiintynyt kertaustyyleihin kuulunut suuntaus. Tyyli sovelsi renessanssille ominaisia muotoja ja tyylipiirteitä.

Uusrenessanssin edustajia Suomessa olivat muun muassa arkkitehdit:

* Frans Anatolius Sjöström (1840–1885),
* Theodor Höijer (1843–1919),
* Gustaf Nyström (1856–1917),
* Axel Hampus Dahlström (1829–1882),
* Karl August Wrede (1859-1943),
* Odert Sebastian Gripenberg (1850–1925).
