Description
Ever since taking CMRS(Classical, Medieval, and Renaissance Studies), I've been fascinated with medieval architecture. Therefore, I tried to recreate a gothic cathedral. A gothic cathedral is characterized by having pointed arches, as opposed to the semi-circular arches from the roman period. This allowed for walls to be thinner, not bulky. Therefore, it allowed for a lot of windows, usually glass windows. Another prominent description of a gothic cathedral is having flying buttresses, which you can see in this cathedral. Another thing, gothic cathedrals are known to have ribbed vaulting, which is more of an interior work, so it is not visible on this model. Tell me what you think.
