Romanesque Revival


Inspired by French and Spanish architecture from the eleventh and twelveth centuries, the Romanesque Revival style gained popularity in the United States in the late-nineteenth century. Used in a variety of building types, from private residences to courthouses, common characteristics included rounded arches, semi-circular arched windows, and belt courses. A resurgence of Romanesque Revival architecture, as well as a variant inspired by Henry Hobson Richardson, in the 1880s inspired the designs of many of Minneapolis’ most prominent landmarks.
