Georgian architecture style is derived from the English Renaissance and refers to the reigning period of Kings George the 1st through the 4th during the years 1720-1820.
It was the first definitive architectural style adopted in America – admired for its stately formality and expression of wealth. Georgian-style buildings are typically symmetrical with distinctive ornamental details – columns, dentil blocks and quoins – details of the classical orders of antiquity.
Georgian style has many variations of design and materials. The Atlanta International School is an example of Georgian style in Atlanta, designed in 1932 by Philip Shutze, Atlanta’s preeminent neoclassical architect.
