Genius anticipates our best achievements; perhaps this is no where clearer than in architecture. The fan vaulting in Gloucester Cathedral combines the mathematical considerations of engineering with organic form in a way that underlines the unity of experience.

And GC is the place where fan vaulting was invented, way back in the 1350’s. It’s hard to improve on some things. RT
