Edwardian architecture is really a blanket term that applies to a number of related styles prevalent during the Edwardian period (1901-10, or up to 1914). It covers Edwardian Baroque, Anglo-Dutch, Warehouse, Queen Anne, Free Style, Arts and Crafts and Bungalow. The use of Edwardian Baroque in large public buildings and monuments is certainly the most memorable element of Edwardian architecture. Also, the widespread use of red brick and terracotta on a domestic scale (with many Arts and Crafts influences) is worthy of mention.
