The Rococo architecture shares many similarities with its predecessor, the Baroque style such as columns and the same style of ornamentation. However, the Rococo style is lighter and more graceful. Many architects were inspired by nature and often decorated windows with "rocaille decorations" of seashells and corals.

Rococo windows are asymmetrical, unlike Baroque window. The transom is raised and the upper casements are smaller than the lower casements.

Copenhagen has some of the best examples of Rococo architecture in Europe, for instance the Amalienborg Palace, which is designed by the famous Danish architect, Nicolai Eigtved.
