Amiens Cathedral (Ascent)

Upper choir, north side, clerestory and flyers looking west

Once past the hemicycle the triforium is now integral: not inserted as on the south side. In other words, the north triforium was not touched by the 1258 fire--perhaps it had not yet been built. The reconstruction of the flying buttresses by Pierre Tarisel c.1500 proceeded on the north just as it had on the south: insertion of a new flyer; reworking of the old.
