Coráni Empire - Architecture
I've been thinking about the spread of and creation history of the Coráni Empire and in it's scope of history how it influenced the building design and style of western Hârn.
From all the sources and materials at had, it seems to me to range from Pre-Romanesque (Merovingian/Carolingian, Ottonian, Asturian), Romanesque, and heading into early Gothic styles when looking at the western areas of Réthem, Thârda, and Kandáy.
The overall picture paints a good amount within Romanesque in my opinion, yet i'd also like to think that each area had their own spin-off style, like say Thârda being influenced by Roman Imperial architecture and since the Coráni grew around Côranan and the area, did any of the architecture have much influence from the Àzeryáni? As I assume they would have have trade with their vast empire.
So to the question at hand, does each of the areas and regions within what was the Coráni Empire have a particular style to regional locations. Such as Spanish, and Byzantine elements, or do some draw influence from France, Germanian, even far east, such as Romania and eastern orthodox influences. Each would cross each during a period of economic boom like at the great height of the Coráni Empire's advancement period.
Then as each split off into their current ares, have other changes that trend when a local area has some boon, like a wealthy merchant, some special event occur, that spurs on the next phase of building.
Be intersted to see all your thoughts, as I'm writing and drawing up some ideas that will show all this growth in the style and character of a particular location.
