Durand Choir Longitudinal Section

Choir Longitudinal Section (Durand)


This longitudinal section shows the three-story elevation with glazed triforium as the middle level. To the east of the main vessel of the choir is the hemicycle surrounded by an ambulatory. Here you can see the section through the axial chapel. The section provides an excellent understanding of the form of the openwork flying buttresses and the relation of the high vaults to the main roof.
