just saying…

Nervi never shied away from his love for the gothic.  And I’ve just been editing a bit about the “eyebrows” in the Palazetto while gawking at St. Denis and Chartres.  And–maybe it’s just me?–there seems to be a wonderful parallel between these eyebrow windows and the way the classic fan vaults fold the cathedral roofs out of the way to let light in.IMG_8117IMG_0653

One thought on “just saying…

  1. It’s not just you. Interesting comparison. Studying University of Chicago collegiate Gothic and very good and broad vocabulary Modern on perimeter of campus, one sees many similar parallels.
