The Gothic monument

The Gothic monument

There have been attempts to explain the position of the Gothic fountain, rolandosa post, etc. on the sides of the square the interests of traffic. The consideration is not evidence-based, though this fact might have had a certain amount of influence. In those days the movement and not remotely like what exists today, even in small provincial towns, as people were afraid to admit in a city of strangers. Even market trade was often conducted not in the city and outside the city walls. Crucial requirements are determined by the form of monuments. Having evolved from the architecture finials (pointed towers), the Gothic monument, and this fragile architectural member, needs to be strengthened and relationships with the environment. The architecture of the vial achieves this through frequent repetition, one and the same motive; the monument is looking for support in a larger architecture: crystal, who grew up next to a large crystal formation. As the sacristy in the Church of St. Lawrence at Nuremberg, are not able to stay without the surrounding pillars and the fountain “Shinerunner” on the main market 1385-1396 he could not stay in the middle of the square (when you restore it a little bit pushed to the middle of the square). Similarly, the fountain “Berlinrosen” in Ulm, the market fountain in the Swabian town of Urach looking for support on a larger structure. To expand on the question of the position of the Gothic monument is not possible, as in most or they destroyed them or the environment has changed. However, in most cases it will be found that the location of the monument, in which vertical corner of some buildings serve him as a support, and if only because of this notice some attractive force higher buildings. The middle of the Gothic monument on the square in itself is impossible as the concept of mid does not exist to wrong construction due to the lack of architektonicznego balance of the parties. The Gothic font in the mathematical center of the square inspired the impression of instability: its structure seems too fragile to dominate the area. In contradiction to this are neo-Gothic “product”, erected in the middle of the correct square, on the axes of the surrounding buildings. It is the pursuit of agglomeration determines the position of even the monumental edifices built in the squares; thus, for example the town hall in Breslau and Posani pushed from the middle of the plan area to one side.
