Classicism

Since my first lecture, way back in October 2010, I have noticed that Harrogate has a lot of this in architecture, not least because of such a large amount of buildings that were built during the Victorian era, but it is also reflected in more modern buildings.  For example, the Victoria Shopping Centre (1992) makes good use of this with it’s stone facing, and, if you notice, the columns are of Doric and Ionic types:

The place does blend in with surrounding buildings of the Victorian era, as you can see from these photographs I took.

I am a Design Student currently studying at Leeds Metropolitan University. Previously, I was at Harrogate College studying National Diploma in Graphic Design. Some people do ask why I haven't stuck with Graphic Design at University. The reason for this, is because I do have an interest and good knowledge on a wide range in design and I wish to find myself on this course over the three years and hopefully pursue a career.
