Church Columns

Gothic Columns and Vaults, 1449-1500,  Aarhus Cathedral, Aarhus, Denmark

Aarhus Cathedral, as it now exists, was built in the Gothic style between 1449 and 1500. Like the exterior, the columns are made of brick, rather than marble or another stone. Prior to the Reformation, at which time the walls were painted to cover the frescoes, the natural brick might have been exposed. The painting decorating the vaults which the columns support was restored in 1990.

Reflections, Weisman Art Museum, designed by Frank Gehry (1993 and 2011), University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN

I have to admit, I am not a fan of Frank Gehry designs. And I am not a fan of where the University of Minnesota stuck the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum Gehry designed. It is out-of-sync with the Art Deco student union and the 1940 dormitory it sits between. Because it hangs on the edge of a bluff overlooking River Road and the Mississippi River, it does catch unobstructed reflections from the sky and the Washington Avenue Bridge, which crosses the Mississippi River. The actual reflections on the brushed stainless steel panels are more subtle. I enhanced them for dramatic effect.

Exterior wall, 13th/14th century, Aarhus Cathedral, Aarhus, Denmark

Originally a Romanesque basilica, Aarhus Cathedral was started in the last decades of the 12th Century, was partially destroyed by a fire in 1330, and enlarged into its present form as a Gothic cathedral between 1450 and 1520. The outer walls and the chapels along the eastern wall of the transept are the only surviving Romanesque elements. The cathedral is dedicated to St. Clement. It is the longest and tallest church in Denmark.
