Gothic architecture, stalwart symbol of the Middle Ages, was revived in the late 19th and early20th centuries, primarily in North America and the United Kingdom. While most commonly utilized in designing churches, the remarkable intricacy and verticality of the Gothic style can also be seen in many academic, commercial, municipal and residential buildings throughout the Chicago area. This presentation explores those various manifestations as well as subgenres of Gothic architecture and decoration.
