How Gothic architecture was structured. Important: The location and use of flying buttresses and ribbed vaulting.

So much design! I believe this might be Notre Dame in Paris.

CHAP 9: This is a flying buttress. Flying buttresses transferred the thrust of the arches diagonally to a buttress at the end, from where the weight was carried downward to the earth. Along with ribbed vaults, these two architectural designs are just amazing to me.
