Tough assignment, expecially since there is no 'Gregorian architecture'. There is the famous Gregorian chants (plainsongs) of the Middle Ages. Maybe what was intended was Cistercian architecture, the architecture of many of the monasteries of the Middle Ages.

Good Luck!

"Cistercian architecture" is just maintaining the proportions of plan and elevation in 1:2 rt!!!!!!without any external projections and no plasterings rt!!!!!!

I saw your dilemna - and googled 'gregorian buildings' instead of architecture. There is a stylistic thread that might just be the answer.

Noted buildings within a certain genre include:
.... "In 1800, the (US) federal government moved to Washington, DC and the Department of the Treasury moved into a porticoed Gregorian-style building designed by an English architect, George Hadfield."
