  Architectural style - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Architectural style is a way of classifying architecture largely by morphological characteristics - in terms of form, techniques, materials, etc. However it is not a holistic way of understanding architectural works because of its emphasis on style.
It overlaps with, and emerges from the study of the evolution and history of architecture, but it is slightly different in its emphasis.
While in architectural history, the study of, for instance, Gothic architecture would include all the aspects of the cultural context that went into the making of these structures, architectural style is a way of classifying architecture that gives emphasis to the characteristic features of Gothic architecture, leading to a terminology such as Gothic "style".
