Chapter 1

By mistere
The Chapter house at York Minster. Windows cover almost all of the upper wall space, filling the chapter house with light. The chapter house is octagonal, as is the case in many cathedrals, but is notable in that it has no central column supporting the roof. The wooden roof, which was of an innovative design, is light enough to be able to be supported by the buttressed walls.

I've lost count of the number of times I've been to York; must have been in the Minster on well over 20 occasions; but I have never been into the Chapter House. I really must make amends. V1 is particular favourite in this detailed set.

A small comment about the chapter: After seeing it here, went to the net to find more, and was surprised by the fact that every source mention the fact that the chapter has no central pillar; for 19.2 meters, that doesn't need, as Gothic style hasn't important lateral thrust, and England has not significant quakes. But the great surprise is to find that the chapter and the entire cathedral of York has a false coverage in wooden truss that mimics the ribs of a Gothic stone vault system. Very interesting! Why this solution? Many variants; sometimes it is a desperate solution after some failures, sometimes a fear of failure elsewhere; that occurs sometimes even for a lack of funds. But, in this case, the artwork is fantastic, even an exercised eye could be cheated.
In the following link you can see the model of the chapter roofing wooden system, a masterpiece.
Now, about the 4 pictures series, they are gorgeous, splendid all, with a special mention to the orthogonal projection, so well positioned and framed (last picture). That's an exceptional set of brilliant 4 pictures. Congratulations Dave!

4 stunning views of the interior Dave. V4 my favourite. You have really conveyed the beauty of the place.
My award goes to you for V4 but they can all share it.

Just having a dip into the mistere archives and spotted these gems! I have nearly identical images taken a couple of months ago which means that I have followed in the steps of the mistere ... master ... whatever!
Cracking images! SmileSmileSmile
