polychromy. Elaborate architectural decoration using many colours, as in Ancient Greek architecture, and revived by Hittorff, Bindesbøll, and others. Structural polychromy is where the colour is not applied after construction, but is provided by the brick, stones, or tiles used in the building: it was a feature of the mature Gothic Revival.
