Question:

The flying buttress is a characteristic most closely associated with which major architectural style?

Inactive
William O.
Answer:

Flying buttresses, comprised of an arch extending from an outer wall to a pier to support the weight and horizontal thrust of roof, were widely adopted in Gothic architecture for both structural and aesthetic purposes. The Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral is a prime early-Gothic example which employs flying buttresses. These supports enabled architects to build taller and more expansively than in earlier Romanesque styles
