  Façadism, in European architecture, refers to the practice of building anew behind a retained front elevation. In certain contexts, such as Brighton in 18th-century England, terraces were constructed to give a classical conformity to the street while each individual dwelling might be designed to suit an individual occupant. Façadism refers perhaps most specifically to situations of redevelopment, and often represents a failure to appreciate the three-dimensional integrity of a built structure\'s original design. JM
