is a term given to a style of architecture combining use of the Gothic lancet arch
influences. The style originates in 14th century Venice
where the confluence of Byzantine style from Constantinople
met Arab influence from Moorish Spain
. Chief examples of the style are the Doge's Palace
and the Ca' d'Oro
The style was revived in the 19th century, largely through the influence of British architectural critic John Ruskin and his treatise The Stones of Venice. In North America the style was popularized by architects Charles Amos Cummings, Frank Furness, William Robert Ware, Willard T. Sears, and Frederick William Stevens.
