The stunning Gothic architecture of York Minster. Thanks to my AP European History class sophomore year, I can now successfully identify these supporting structures as buttresses. Flying buttresses, to be precise. I remember all of us fifteen-year-olds getting a kick out of that. Of course that would be all I took away from that class.
