Several beautiful secular buildings can be found in Venice. The local Gothic architecture was influenced by the magnificent Byzantine architecture.

The Palais des Papes in Avignon, is the biggest Gothic constructions of the Middle Ages.
During the 14th century, the papal residence was the seat of Western Christianity.

As far as I know, the biggest Gothic secular construction is Marienburg Castle in Malbork/Marienburg, but that's not really relevant.

It was built by the Teutonic Order in the 14th/15th century and served as the residence of the Hochmeister (High Master).

It is possible, because the area of this fortress is impressive !

Tallest building in the world between 1300 and 1549 too. It also used to have spires on top of the towers that were as tall as the building itself.

Possibly the last "Gothic" form ever built on a massive scale (outside of Barcelona)... found in Detroit, the 1993 completed 200m tall One Detroit Center office tower. (Which of course is Post Modern, and only the top half of the 47 story tower is showing here.)

image hosted on flickr


Note: the office building to the left of it (and to the right of the Church steeple) is One Woodward Ave., the 1962 completed Minuru Yamagasi's prototype for his 1966-73 late World Trade Center towers. This was Detroit architect Yamagasi's only office tower before his huge WTC commission. This 28 story office tower, like the later WTC towers, also had Gothic details.

Nice skyscraper but it's neither Gothic nor Gothic Revival architecture.

Please, stick to the topic.

Good job, but you left out the "Unfinished Chapels" (Capelas Imperfeitas).

Basilique de Saint Denis, France (Basilica of Saint Denis): where it all began.

Constructed between 1137 and 1144, the Church of Saint-Denis marks the beginning of the Gothic style in Europe.

Saint Denis Basilica, built under the supervision of Abbot Suger, heralded Europe’s shift from Romanesque to Gothic.
The facade is primarily Romanesque, but many details in the church move away from the low Romanesque style. The Church of Saint-Denis was the first large building to use the new vertical style known as Gothic.
The difference can be seen in its pointed arch, the ribbed vault, the ambulatory with radiating chapels, the clustered columns supporting ribs springing in different directions and the flying buttresses which enabled the insertion of large clerestory windows.

Originally the Church of Saint-Denis had two towers, but one collapsed in 1837.

The church is where the kings of France and their families were buried for centuries and is therefore often referred to as the “royal necropolis of France”. All but three of the monarchs of France from the 10th century until 1789 have their remains here, as well as many from previous centuries. (It was not used for the coronations of kings, that function being reserved for the Cathedral of Reims; however, queens were commonly crowned there.)

The basilica's 13th century nave has been the prototype for the Rayonnant Gothic style, and provided an architectural model for cathedrals and abbeys of northern France, England and other countries.
The church would have "the most radiant windows" to "illuminate men's minds so that they may travel through apprehension of God's light."
--Suger, Abbot of Saint-Denis

Great job, keep it up!

Maybe a little bit to much.

Notre-Dame de L'Épine Basilica in Champagne, constructed between 1405 and 1527.
It's representative of the art Flamboyant Gothic.
