Tudor Revival

Tudor Revival. C19 eclectic revival of Tudor architecture. It had two distinct strands: the style of early Gothic Revival cheap churches of the Commissioners' Gothic type, and of educational buildings (Collegiate Gothic); and the revival of domestic and vernacular forms for houses and country cottages associated with the Picturesque. As Tudor architecture was often of brick, the Revival lent itself to the construction of schools, workhouses (which gave the style a bad image), chapels, gate-lodges, and model cottages, often with diaper-pat-terns, small casement-windows with leaded lights, moulded-brick chimneys, and even partially timber-framed structures. Many books of designs were published that featured such domestic buildings. Later C19 Tudor Revival was part of the Arts-and-Crafts movement and the Domestic Revival, and at its best could produce master-pieces, such as the housing in Port Sunlight (1880s–1914) and Thornton Hough (1890s), both in Cheshire, and both containing brilliant designs by Grayson & Ould, Douglas & Fordham, and William & Segar Owen. A further, not often successful revival occurred in C20, especially in public-house and domestic architecture of the 1920s and 1930s.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
