    During the early 19th century, the romantic medieval Gothic revival style was developed as a reaction to the symmetry of Palladianism, and such buildings as Fonthill Abbey were built. By the middle of the 19th century, as a result of new technology, construction was able to incorporate steel as a building component; one of the greatest exponents of this was Joseph Paxton, architect of the Crystal Palace. Paxton also continued to build such houses as Mentmore Towers, in the still popular English Renaissance styles. New methods of construction were developed in this era of prosperity, but ironically the architectural styles, as developed by such architects as Augustus Pugin, were typically retrospective. In Scotland, the architect Alexander Thomson who practiced in Glasgow was a pioneer of the use of cast iron and steel for commercial buildings, blending neo-classical conventionality with Egyptian and oriental themes to produce many truly original structures. Other notable Scottish ar...

    During the 18th century, a few English architects emigrated to the colonies, but as the British Empire became firmly established during the 19th century, many architects emigrated at the start of their careers. Some chose the United States, and others went to Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Normally, they applied architectural styles that were fashionable when they left England. By the latter half of the century, however, improving transport and communications meant that even remote parts of the Empire had access to publications such as the magazine The Builder, which helped colonial architects keep informed about current fashion. Thus, the influence of English architecture spread across the world. Several prominent architects produced English-derived designs around the world, including William Butterfield (St Peter's Cathedral, Adelaide) and Jacob Wrey Mould (Chief Architect of Public Works in New York City).

    Efforts to preserve landmarks of Victorian architecture are ongoing and are often led by the Victorian Society. A recent campaign the group has taken on is the preservation of Victorian gasometersafter utility companies announced plans to demolish nearly 200 of the now-outdated structures.

  5. Although architectural historians generally agree that about eight primary architectural styles were prominent in the United States and Canada during the Victorian era, Victorian-era residential architecture in the United States and Canada was a procession of styles borrowed from countries and historical styles.

    The picture on this page of the Carson Mansion is infact not the Carson Mansion, but Manchester Town Hall. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:00, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

    I don't think this should be a disambiguation page. Victorian architecture includes many styles, but it seems as valid a term as Georgian architecture. Besides, it is difficult, if not impossible, to tell which specific style it refers to when used in articles. Indeed, would it even be a good idea to try? I'm inclined to remove the {{disambig}} template. -- Flauto Dolce01:20, 28 December 2005 (UTC) 1. I've gone ahead and done it. Flauto Dolce01:31, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

    It is a little disappointing that British photographic examples appear to be in the minority on this page given the wealth of variety clearly in evidence across the country. In addition I believe the article should make a distinction between public and private building and make reference to interior architectual elements alongside the obvious external characteristics.--John Gibbard (talk) 08:41, 14 September 2008 (UTC) 1. 1.1. I don't know enough on the subject but I agree; the majority of the images are from North America which, given that many great examples come from Britain (the Natural History Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Northampton Guildhall, the Crystal Palace, Glasgow City Chambers, the Royal College of Music etc.), is rather strange. 1. 1.1. 1.1.1. Also, there are many other places in the UK that have a significant amount of Victorian architecture, for example Glasgow, Birmingham, Liverpool, Nottingham and Newcastle. It seems that there should be a more represen...

    This artical hs sustained a considerable regional bias since its creation. If you can help please address the following points: 1. Reduduce bias content or increase content for other regions to balance the world view, with references and supporting images. 2. Significantly expand the article. 1. 1.1. If it proves impracticable to achieve a global representation of Victorian architecture, several references and images of Victorian architecture in the USA may have to be to removed until a balance is struck. Removed items will not be deleted, but will be transferred to the article talk page for future use.--Kudpung (talk) 12:11, 12 August 2009 (UTC) 1. Thanks for the note, I don't have the time, but The Victorian Society would be a good place to start for the UK perspective, I believe that they also publish the authoritative book on the subject. I similarly tagged the Victorian house article. -- John (Daytona2· Talk· Contribs)09:33, 16 August 2009 (UTC) Hear hear. I will do a section o...

    Thanks to everyone who responded to last year's call to expand this article and give it a more international coverage. It's now looking a lot better, but could still use more - IMO Victorian architecture is an important subject and is not adequately covered. With just a bit more work, this article could probably now be nominated for GA.--Kudpung (talk) 18:57, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

    There is nothing distinctively "Victorian" about the photo of a Victorian-era slum. Why is that included? I suspect it is merely a present-day "social justice" campaigner trying to make their point about the economic discrepancies of Victorian society. This article is about architecture, and not a platform for people to make Dickensian judgments - even if they are valid. Unless someone can justify why that photo belongs in this article, I think it should be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Naymetayken (talk • contribs) 03:05, 23 December 2010 (UTC) 1.

    This section is referred to on other pages which refer to the reign of this Queen. I am visiting you last of all since I did not realize you existed but I found you quoted after I had added on other pages comments relating to the absence of any reference to the Royal Albert Hall. I find now that the same applies to this article and I therefore wish to quote here what I have said elsewhere as follows: (Quote) I have not read the article throughout but a search using Ctrl-F reveals nothing about the Royal Albert Hall and I conclude therefore there is nothing about the architecture of Britain during the reign of this Queen? In fact it did of course effectively change very radically in a number of ways in particular as a result of industrialization. I do not here intend to be understood as referring simply to the creation of Victorian new towns but also to the fact that for the first time a majority of the population lived in urban areas and, within the countryside itself, there was a c...
