Between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries, the culture of western architectural records a broad range of expressions related to the imaginary Orientalist. This "feel" intercepts regularly transitional seasons of the contemporary era project culture. The hedonism minute cult Rococo (with the exaltation of attraction for the distant, distinct and different), will allow the culture of the Enlightenment to carry the forms generically Orientalists towards a new search. This ensures the more radical Neoclassicism an undeniable place in the progress towards a "new architecture".Kept the aesthetic and ideological impulses of the last season of "the age of reason," the Orientalism will be tuned to the variables of stylistic periodization throughout the nineteenth century. So will take the value of real and intangible protein in the aesthetic revolution of modernism, and then slip back into exotic complacency of the Roaring Twenties.In the wake of a renewal of Western will to dominate the world, already evident in positivist age, in this period, the Orientalism is back with its external components, also for its vitalistic ideas and susceptibility to stylistic contamination.After World War II, Orientalism will impose a different presence in the most advanced culture of the project, with humanizing results even in the objective mechanistic vocation of the International Style.
