Gothic

 

Author Jonathan Glancey makes a brilliant return to architecture criticism to show how Gothic architecture retains its grip on our imagination and why we still need its formal template and its moral example. Far from being a cultural dead end, Gothic architecture reached fresh heights in the 20th century. Skyscrapers could be seen as medieval spires re-imagined for the era of rampant commercialism, elevators and high finance.
