Continuation of the other thread that did not bump for some reason.

If there's one thing ancient Muslims perfected it was architecture. Which when perfected in collaboration with Christians led to the birth of the longest lived architectural style in the CE (in Europe (I think)).
Look at that, isn't it beautiful? It both looks robust while also being completely open.

Also Gothic architecture really needs to make a second comeback. Just imagine a modern building made with modern materials in that style.

What are your favorite historical buildings?

Needs more pointy arches and edgy points

Some historians have advanced the hypothesis that pointy arches originated from muslims too, but this is a controversial subject.

>A modern understanding of physical laws and the mathematical tools for calculating stresses were centuries in the future. Brunelleschi, like all cathedral builders, had to rely on intuition and whatever he could learn from the large scale models he built. To lift 37,000 tons of material, including over 4 million bricks, he invented hoisting machines and lewissons for hoisting large stones.
It always amazes me how everyone back then just pretty much eyeballed everything and it just worked.

Beautiful.
If these were made today they would probably still be left mostly unchanged in a hundred years. Gothic is timeless and just goes with everything.

I read this book about the giant conundrum the architects from both the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany uncovered when they realized they had basically designed the same building.

Imagine the stress on both sides

Nothing beats Gothic. Gothic is the highest you can possibly go.

Profane whimsical meditteranoid architecture needs not apply.
Besides Muslim architecture is fucking garbage once you go sufficiently away from Spain or Byzantium. It becomes Brutish, cold and lifeless.

But muh tile patterns and geometry, domes to 11 and spacious volumes opened on the outside for airflow

Look at this, that tile fetishist from /v/ would probably cum liters if he saw that.
