rt Nouveau architectural style arose in the late 19th century in Brussels, as a refutation of all previous styles, in contrast to eclecticism, based on the blending of historical architecture. Buildings built in this style characterized by a practical plan, expressive ornamentation, original interpretation of historic styles, striving upwards.
