nope.. jst gothic.. we're actually trying to make a manga here on crunchyrolls.. and the setting of the story is suppose to be on a modern metropolis city with elements of magic in it.. we thought gothic is a pretty spiritual style as a building.. so we're trying to fuse modern look with gothic to the buildings that's on the world of our story... trouble is we can't find a good examples from both style on the net yet.

Since you people here on this thread seems to know lots abt architecture.. i thought i'd discuss it while trying to draw idea from unsuspecting people at the same time : P


There are so many good Gothic buildings: Sainte Chappele, the Cathedral in Cologne, Notre Dame in Paris...

..although I must say, it would be really hard to understand so if you're trying to revive Gothic architecture most probably you won't be able to get the essence and the architecture fails. But since its a manga and nobody would probably know or care anyway, its worth a try, but you will still probably have a hard time even just copying the elements blindly and not understanding the architecture.


do you think it would look weird though? say like.. a art deco style with flying butresses and pointed windows and gargoyles? : S
i get your point.. but as long as it doesn't look funny/erroneous/unpleasing.. it would be good enough i guess..
And does it achieve what we were trying to say? A modern city that was based on magics instead of science..


Hmm.. i guess it will be ok since you're not really sending it to an architectural competition. At this point of the process, your design team should already stop worrying whether it would look weird/erroneous. It has already been weird/erroneous the moment you decided to incorporate Gothic style with "art deco".

In architecture, thats just wrong. Gothic is gothic, you cant revive it. At most you can take the underlying principles and apply it to your own contemporary style. But that will take longer and much more effort cuz then you have to study all of architecture and the classical and stuffs. And even if you do that, you will probably just end up with a modern -looking building and not the ambience that you want to achieve for your manga.

On the other hand, if you go the other way, go superficial and just blindly copy the elements (the butresses, arches, gargoyles, whatever..), chances are it would be totally wrong as a Gothic architecture but will look more like what you want to achieve in the manga. So just go with it and design a totally wrong Gothic-looking pseudo-Gothic architecture .

I'm not completely sure if you can can catch my drift but its kinda hard to explain further.


no that was actually pretty clear and to the point.. thx!


"gothic is gothic you can't revive it" ^-^
I have to admit i love some of the attempts. Mostly in science fiction you get those utopian buildings with so many elements. Though she is totally right you can go so wrong with a mock style. You just have to look at some of the georgian mocks in england (particularly stamford) arrgh they make me so angry >.<

For the sake of a change of coarse i love deconstructuralism ^-^. Thats the architecture for me

a good example for architecture gone wrong:


Wow. A swastika in architecture. Deffinately not my thing, even if the world had this symbol with a religious meaning long before Hitler existed. No, I am NOT trying to piss anyone off, so go to this link and read for yourself:

I like anything except Andrew Lyod Wright's stuff. All those boxes put together just isn't my thing...but man, I am ALWAYS amazed by the Great Wall. Talk about architecture...that's one of the world's BEST examples of what man can do.
