This program lets popular architectural styles & tell their stories; and explain why they remain popular today. The Tudor style explains its roots in the Roaring Twenties and reveals its beginnings in Medieval designs. A series of neo-Classic buildings trace their roots to ancient Greece and speculate about why they remain popular thousands of years later. Each style gives viewers visual clues to help identify its style. A lively Victorian explains why it was once an example of high tech; design and why it still inspires houses built today. The Prairie style explains its strong horizontal lines. Colonial Revival houses explore their origins and viewers learn that the style of a house is a visual expression of social values. The "less is more"; contemporary style is contrasted to post-modern styles where "less is a bore." (Learning Seed, USA).
