A style of architecture that evolved from the Mannerist period in the 17th and 18th centuries before being eclipsed by Neo-Classicism. Baroque architecture is characterized by sculptural, undulating surfaces, ovals instead of circles, and exaggerated classically based forms. Most Baroque architects were first sculptors.
