After the choir was finished, these successors pursued their own artistic goals without disturbing the harmony of the overall building. While the five aisle conception of the choir was extended to the nave – thus the Gothic ground plan was brought to its highest perfection – the vertical tendency was increasingly emphasised as building progressed, until it found its highest expression in the western façade with its pair of towers. Only one sketched plan from the beginning of the fourteenth century has survived.
Westminster Abbey The last great work of Willem of Sens is Westminster Abbey in London (see p. 50, 51). When building commenced in 1245, a pronounced Anglo-Gothic method of construction was already established practice. Its characteristic peculiarity was a straight ending choir without ambulatory, which often was extended into a square Lady Chapel. Above the crossing, a massive square tower replaced the ridge turret. Also typical are the two transepts, the arrangement of horizontal and vertical tendencies, as well as the exuberant creation of the vaults, which in the end would indulge in excessive extravagance (net, star and fan vaults with low hanging keystones).
Still, there are some churches in Saxony and Thuringia that are of monumental significance. The most voluminous and artistically significant are Magdeburg Cathedral (1209-1520) (see p. 66), Halberstadt Cathedral (1239-1492) with its towers that stem from the early building period and still bear Romanesque forms, and the Cathedrals of Meissen and Erfurt. The latter two are hall churches and feature a three aisle structure. The equal height of the aisles accommodates the need for spaciousness that had manifested itself in the reign of the Romanesque style.
