Lisa, you need to create matrix to define the architectural themes you listed in capital letters by (a) time and (b) space.

Plus the essential difference between these architectural themes is that climate and environment determined these themes. For example, the designers of architecture in Northern Europe viewed the Sun as friendly source of gentle warmth and light to be let inside, whereas, the designers of architecture viewed the Sun as a hostile source of intense heat and light to be kept outside.
