Interiors and exteriors by Zocher

After centuries dominated by classicism, Zocher experimented with a new style: the Gothic Revival. This was daring, because in 1840 there was still nobody who took the Gothic architectural style seriously. But a change was coming up: architects and clients became fascinated by the Gothic Revival because it emphasises the emotional meaning of architecture. With these presentation drawings, Zocher struck out in a new direction, albeit still hesitantly. Alongside his neoclassical designs he presented a neo-Gothic variant. Not yet entirely sure of his case, he presented the familiar style as well as the experimental alternative.
