In my History and Theory of Environmental Design: Small Scale class, we had to choose any topic related to the history of architecture and write a paper about it. That was a lot of choices.

After investigating the building further, I decided I wanted to learn more about Gothic Architecture and how the style influenced the creation of Sainte-Chapelle. Below is the cover page and first paragraph of the Full Paper.
