gothic inspired african wildetect style architecture

Gothic style architecture has an incredibly powerful visual life of its own. for me its the architectural style that best represents human existence, planet earth. the intensity of lace , the almost other worldly aire of the style is for me, fascinating.
to use the Gothic architectural style as a design point of departure for a wildetect type building, has been an exercise Ive been meaning to do for awhile. using insectiture elements in the flying buttresses and an African raptor roof rafter system. adding arachniture lace and leaf visual shape to the columns and the conceptual space takes shape.
this stands in direct contrast to the modern architectural style with its militant, "accountant like" losing of all things fussy and visual .
