  • 1 Romanesque Revival

    The Romanesque Revival style was popular in the late 19th century and was inspired by the 11th- and 12th-century Romanesque style of architecture. Characteristic features include round arches, semi-circular arches on windows and stringcourses. Romanesque Revival buildings have thick walls and large flat wall surfaces. Romanesque Revival was more restrained than the later Richardsonian Romanesque style. It was used widely for civic and institutional buildings, and can also be found in the architecture of churches and synagogues. Though not as common as religious buildings undertaken in the Gothic Revival or Richardsonian Romanesque styles, there are a number of good examples of Romanesque Revival places of worship in Ontario.
