To begin with the ancient Egyptian revival architecture, the Egyptian types or styles of construction were very popular during the 1920s. But these styles were not seen at a large scale. It was noticed that some churches, movie theatres and prisons were built following the Egyptian architecture. The Egyptian architecture incorporates smooth wall finishes and flat roofs, and the entrances that resemble the entrance of the Egyptian temples. The features of the pillars used to be lotus type and also included various symbols like discs, some sorts of inscriptions or vulture sun etc.

Similarly, the Greek architecture revival was based on the imitation of classical Greek temples particularly the Parthenon temple built in the 5th century BC in Athens. The Greek architecture was designed from the principle of order, geometry, symmetry and perspective. The basic architectural principle of order of classical architecture of Greece was Doric, Corinthian and Ionic. In the contemporary Greek architectural revival, a full entablature is normally kept on the row of columns and over this is the pediment roof. The homes which have Greek architecture normally keep the headers over the front door which are called transom along with the coloured lights in each side of the door. You can find white-column southern plantation homes which are the best examples of Greek architectural revivals.

The Gothic architectural revival was seen very popular during the mid-1830s in the constructions of cottages to churches and castles. The steeply pitched roofs are the significant features of the Gothic architecture.
