A friend of my parrents gave them this link so I could use it as a reference. It’s an architectural dictionary and even though everything is in French and I don’t understand a word of it, it’s absolutely awesome. Most articles are suplied with plenty of technical drawings and/or floorplans and have an assload of text to them that’s probably very descriptive (haven’t tried deciphering any of it yet, my French is that bad). There’s a lot on gothic architecture as well as military and civilian buildings. It deals with stuff from the 11th to the 16th century.
In any case, I just thought I’d share it in hope sthat somebody might find it useful:
p.s. this is the correct board for stuff like this, right?
