Blueprint of medieval cathedral

This is cool. The top image shows a drawing on parchment from the 1260s. It is one of the earliest existing architectural drawings and depicts the façade, or front, of Strasbourg Cathedral in France. The “blueprint” almost stands a meter tall. What’s so special about this medieval artifact is that it still exists: single sheets rarely survive from the Middle Ages (with the exception of charters). Equally special is that we can compare the drawing to the real thing (lower pic): it is not hard to recognize the big round window in both drawing and real building - note also the door underneath it and the pointy window to the right. How great that we are given a peek on the medieval architect’s drawing board. Ironically, he did not live to see his creation built, because the cathedral was finished in the 14th century.

"My name is Oliver Tate. I suppose it’s a bit of an affectation, but sometimes I wish there was a film crew following my every move. I don’t quite know what I am yet. I’ve tried flipping coins, listening exclusively to French crooners, I’ve even had a brief hat phase: but nothing stuck."
