    What are the characteristics of Gothic Architecture?

    Correct Answer
    emphasis on verticle and light progressively freed from architecture
    Gothic architecture is characterized by its emphasis on verticality and the use of light. The buildings are designed to reach great heights, with tall, pointed arches and soaring spires. The use of stained glass windows allows for the manipulation of light, creating a mystical and ethereal atmosphere inside the structures. This style of architecture also saw a departure from the heavy, solid forms of previous architectural styles, with the use of flying buttresses and ribbed vaults that allowed for a more open and airy feel. Overall, Gothic architecture aimed to create a sense of awe and transcendence through its verticality and manipulation of light.
