This thread should focus on medieval Gothic architecture.

There is nothing to be said against a Gothic Revival or a general Revivalism thread.

St Lawrence Church (Lorenzkirche) in Nuremberg is another example of a German hall church.

It has an assymetrical appearance because of the impressive Late Gothic choir.

The Castle Church(Schlo▀kirche) in Chemnitz, Germany. This is a late Gothic hall church (16th century) which has a quite "dynamic" vault and a very fancy main portal.

The St. Elisabeth Cathedral in KoÜice, Slovakia. Built in High Gothic Style between 1378 and 1508, but also later underwent numerous restorations/reconstructions (most extensively in 1877-1896).

What should not be forgotten is that the buildings in this tread are examples of high gothic. Thats understandable because they are very attractive. But they don't define gothic architecture totally, in the first place those are buildings from the later period and second because they are the really really expensive ones.

There still is a large amount of more provincial churches. They usually have later additions and/or modifications and some are extended (sometimes even beyond recognition. I┤m talking about the Dutch situation here, but for obvious reasons, I guess that must also be the case for other countries.

These churches are not the grand pieces of art, sometimes they are downright clunky with a plain white interior. But I think they are always charming and give identity to the village they stand in. Walfriduskerk first romanesque church was built ca. 1050. What you see here is from the 15th/16th century http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Walfriduskerk


Yes, it┤s really leaning.


I also find it hard sometime to distinguish between romanesque and gothic churches. For example this one has the signature gothic pointed arches, but it is enlisted as romanesque. Look at the details of the round part from the church of Westergeest, 13th century, http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hervorm...k_(Westergeest)

I guess that's what's mend by Romano-Gothic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romano-Gothic

Church of Breede, between 1150 and 1400 http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerk_van_Breede


Martinichurch in Bolsward, built between 1446 and 1466


Saint-Nicolaschurch in Oostrum, 16th century http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sint-Nicolaaskerk_(Oostrum)


Church of Eelde, 14e eeuw http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorpskerk_(Eelde)


Jacobuschurch of Rolde, 15th century



Church of Den Hoorn, 1425


High ambitions, but then trade collapsed...
Part of a tower in Zierikzee, the church was never build, 15th/16th century


This one on the other hand is a remaining part of a church (1410) in Westkapelle. The original tower wasn't much higher as the brick part, it had a simple pitched roof on top. What might be a funny story is that during the gothic revival, a lot of medieval towers which never had a spire and never were mend to have a spire, have been 'restored' into their 'correct' shape with a high pitching spire because of the theories about architectural purity. This tower had a rather different fate. Ironically the lighthouse is more iconic then the church could have ever been.

K÷nigswiesen Parish Church (Pfarrkirche K÷nigswiesen) in Austria looks rather unimpressive at first glance.


http://de.academic.ru/pictures/dewik...gswiesen_1.jpg


Nonetheless, it contains an awesome Late Gothic "serpentine" vault from the 16th century.

It is really relevant, because Marienburg Castle today is modern reconstruction from XX century without medieval soul vs Palais des Papes from XIV century.

Marienburg Castle from 1945

I am fan of truly intact old gothic cathedrals with survived old soul.

CathÚdrale Notre-Dame de Paris mosty intact from 1260.

1163 - Cornerstone laid.
1182 - Apse and choir completed.
1225 - Western facade completed.
1250 - Western towers completed.
1260 - Transepts completed.

From 1260 to 2013 - Very small interventions (statues, windows, furniture...) - nothing in layout

Gothic isn't usually my favorite style. But Notre Dame and the Cathedral of K÷ln are two of my favorite cathedrals.

It's funny, because It seems that technological profits that came with gothic pointed arches didn't affect form of churches in Italy

Gothic=Barbarian, stranger and unrefined.

That's the etymology of the word - coined by art historian Giorgio Vasari- and that's how gothic features were perceived on the southern side of the Alps.

Even the Duomo of Milan is an all-marble 5-nave roman basilica with gabled front.

Some shots of the oldest parts of Milan cathedral, built in the late XIVth or in the first decades of the XV century. It's pure european gothic stile (with the carachters of that age, like the polygonal apse, and with some original solution depending from the architects). I think the only church in Italy with a real gothic conception.
