If your are interested into middle-age cathedrals, you will certainly know the great lady of Strasbourg : its marvelous cathedral.
If not, then have a look to wikipedia
you will certainly be impressed by its very characteristic unique tower making this cathedral the highest present middle age building (it was the tallest in the world from 1647 to 1874).
(source Google map).
Last december, the ARTE TV channel diffused a very impressive documentary
on the elevation of the cathedral and this gave me the idea to build it in an Architecture like style.
Virtually, it looks like this :
The scale was rapidly defined with the 3 studs diameter for the rose window and the sand green slope bricks for the roof.
