The Gothic Cathedral focuses on the interaction between design and the requirements of patrons, following the creative processes of architects by reconstructing the problems and opportunities which faced them. Christopher Wilson presents the essential facts on such aspects of chonology, structural techniques and stylistic developments; and then goes further, seeing the story as a sequence of choices from which new solutions - and still greater challenges - arose.

Illustrated with carefully chosen photographs and specially drawn diagrams, The Gothic Cathedral has already established itself as a definitive introduction to the subject. For this paperback edition, the author has incorporated the results of the most recent research and added new bibliographical material.
