1⁄1Architecture of Normandy
The FeatureThis summer, I had an opportunuity to visit a handful of towns and small cities in Normandy. Much has been modernized and rebuilt since the war but it still remains a good source of details of traditional Norman architecture. I have concentrated on as many 'typical' buildings as time permitted me. Although much is modern (particularly in cities such as Caen) there are still a surprising amount of buildings which HAVE survived and are very much as they are when they were constructed several centuries ago. Although materials and building techniques have changed, there still remains a interest in create buildings in the traditional style. Inevitably, with more time, I could have explored furher, but in the meantime, I hope this feature will be some use when the time comes to create your own structures!
