Rillian here with a digital portfolio of sorts, a showcase, a display, a collection if you will, a grand aggregation of style; that is to say I present to you various styles of buildings that I am capable, willing, and quite adroit at creating in Minecraft, as well as a couple of other miscellaneous categories that I feel I can also conjure into your Minecraft world. And as sure as time is time, day day, and night night, brevity is the soul of with, and thus I shall be brief.
I proudly present to you STYLES: A SHOWCASE OF THE FINEST.
Timber Frame: This is a very old style of architecture, identified by its frames made of logs—or timber— and the whitewashed walls referred to as pargetting. The roof is usually made out of wood (or thatch in less wealthy towns or districts).
Gothic: A style that came long after the timber frame house, you can recognize Gothic style architecture by the stonework, the steep incline of the roof, and the buttresses (which in this case are "flying buttresses") protruding from the lower walls.
Victorian: This style was quite recent in comparison to the other two, coming into fashion about the 1600s. A Victorian house is well-known for its whitewashed siding (although in certain cases, such as the Queen Anne style house, the walls can be many different colors), the brickwork around the house, the towers that often stick up from the house, and the wrap-around porch, commonly called the "veranda."
The Bridge:There's no particular style for a bridge, but you may want to stick to the brick pallet that you chose to do your buildings with, and use that style. Here, I was just playing around with a cool looking design, but if you took the fences and replaced them with stone bricks, and put an embellishment on the ends of the top cover, it could easily pass for a Gothic-style bridge. At any rate, I also consider myself to be adept at building these beautiful creatures.
The Fountain:Another decoration that doesn't have a particular style attached to it, I also make fountains. While there are no real requirements as far as architectural styles to build a fountain, do note that historically, fountains were usually located in wealthier parts of town, and during the periods when Gothic and Victorian buildings ruled; they also became more popular around the 1800's in England and America (whose buildings I usually don't create because I don't like them quite as much personally) when the Half-Timber style came around (a revival of the Timber-Frame houses, also called the Tudor Revival arch). In this case, you would probably classify it as a fountain built in a Gothic fashion because of the buttresses and stonework. If you added more fencing, took the buttresses away, and replaced the outer stonework with brickwork, you might be leaning more into a Victorian style.
And so I thank you for reading, and I hope you had a great time looking through my catalog of builds, and hopefully you carried away some inspiration. If you want, feel free to post pictures of your own work inspired by this thread. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to PM me straight away, or reply to this thread, and I will get back to you straight away!
