Plan of Salisbury Cathedral, 1075–1092

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

This is a plan of the Salisbury Cathedral, England. It is an example of English Gothic architecture. The scale is in feet. “The square eastern termination, the less ambitious height, and the comparatively simple buttress–system, combine to give the English Gothic cathedral an air of great repose than is found in the magnificent triumphs of French Gothic art.” The grouping “of ‘lancet’ windows, the piercing of the wall above them with the foiled circles, and the combination of the whole under an enclosed arch, soon led to the introduction of tracery, for which the design of earlier triforium arcades had also afforded a suggestion.”
