Design based on The Fall Of The House Of Usher | Gothic Style

Beside the characteristic of gothic architecture, gothic style interpretation from other region enriched the meaning of it and consequently formulate a horrifying yet mysterious metaphor. I believe it is the literary and artistic creation that gives spirit and story to "gothic". From my personal perspective, gothic style always remind me of the darkest hour before dawn, after which comes rebirth and hope.

Light Imitation | Gothic Design Style

Gothic design, particularly, Gothic architecture, celebrates nature and captures the eclectic beauty of nature. It utilizes light as its main medium to create a microcosm of nature in an enclosed space with elements borrowed from nature: its shapes, textures, and patterns.


Contrast to its predecessor, Romanesque style, Gothic is dramatic with its skeletal frames supported by flying buttresses and colorful stained glass windows. These features are created in careful yet playful observation of nature the Gothic buildings inhabit.

GOTHIC

Gothic morphology, a derogatory name because its origin is not dark or gloomy, on the contrary, these works were the greatest advance in Europe in the new millennium (1400 AD), they started from the construction of semi-circular arches in a random sense due to their structural support intrinsic to formulation and planning. Those who possessed this knowledge had real power in such a way that they consolidated the visualization of Catholicism for 300 years.
