This is the National Building Museum, which I find to be rather interesting.
Please go to the icon that has the name of the museum, then visit the exhibitions.
Check out two different exhibitions and see what types of visual information you can gather.
Remember-we are dealing with architecture here and that is what I want you to focus on.
What are your favorite exhibitions here and WHY?

This is the Amiens cathedral, a perfect example of Gothic architecture.This site has all the pictures of the cathedral for you and many drawings and graphics.
To get larger views, click on the thumbnails on the right side of your screen. IF YOU CANNOT FIND THE SITE, USE GOOGLE.
Once you view the second site, please consider the following:
a. What are the generalities of the facade? How many doorways are there in the facade of Amiens and how would you think that number plays into the Christian faith of the time? (do some research!)
b. What was the shape of the floor plan and why is it significant? Use your textbook or else check online to see what floor plans meant in those times. c. What type of archway is used in Gothic? Check this lesson for the answer.
