  Custom Huse Architecture > Federal Style
The Federal style of architecture, employed in many of the public structures erected between 1776 and 1820 can be seen as an Americanization of the classical architecture which preceeded it in Europe and the colonies.
Architecture being one of the fine arts, and as such within the department of a professor of the college, according to the new arrangement, perhaps a spark may fall on some young subjects of natural taste, kindle up their genius, and produce a reformation in this elegant and useful art.
Could we carry into our civil architecture the responsibilities that weigh upon our shipbuilding, we should ere long have edifices as superior to the Parthenon, for the purposes that we require, as the Constitution or the Pennsylvania is to the galley of the Argonauts.

 US: Monticello and the University of Virginia in Charlottesville
His architectural works were an integral part of the neoclassical movement, but their adaptation to the convenience, ideals, and requirements of the new nation made them uniquely Jeffersonian.
His architecture reflected his high regard for the classical civilizations of Rome and Greece and was part of the classical trend that swept through Europe in the eighteenth century.
As embodied in Jefferson's architecture, these ideals also were depicted by historian Howard Adams: As the house of the chief architect of the New Republic, Monticello continues to speak openly of those goals Jefferson held for himself, his family, his government, and his fellow countrymen.

The Empire style in architecture is epitomized by such mammoth public works as the triumphal arches at the Carrousel du Louvre, designed by Percier and Fontaine and begun in 1806, and the Champs-Élysées, designed by Jean-François Chalgrin and begun the same year.
Greek-inspired architecture in England is exemplified by such constructions as the Bank of England rotunda (1796) by Sir John Soane and the British Museum portico (1823-1847) by Sir Robert Smirke.
The Greek Revival was modified by the Regency style, notable architectural examples of which are the facades designed by John Nash for Regent Street (begun 1812) in London and his Royal Pavilion at Brighton (1815-1823).

In the official lists in sections 6.2 - 6.10, an asterisk (*) next to a protocol denotes that it is new to this document or has been moved from one protocol level to another, or differs from the previous edition of this document.
While they may be proposed as a service protocol at a later stage, and thus become proposed standard, draft standard, and then standard protocols, the designation of a protocol as experimental may sometimes be meant to suggest that the protocol, although perhaps mature, is not intended for operational use.
Sometimes one protocol is replaced by another and thus becomes historic, or it may happen that a protocol on the standards track is in a sense overtaken by another protocol (or other events) and becomes historic (state 5).

 Architecture-Lounsbury
The purpose of this article is to present a systematic study of the development of vernacular domestic architecture in three counties in northeastern North Carolina.
The Virginia house, a one-story dwelling with gable-end chimneys and either a one-room or a two-room, hall-and-parlor plan was the first distinctively native style of domestic architecture to emerge in the English colonies.
Perhaps the greatest factor in the decline of vernacular architecture was the displacement in popular esteem of the traditional types of dwellings by ones taken from patterns in builders’ handbooks.
