Gothic architecture flourished in Europe in the Middle Ages, bringing to life masterpieces like Paris’ Notre Dame in France and Cologne’s Cathedral in Germany with their pointed arches and looming spires. This architectural style had a revival in the 20th century in the United States as well, with buildings like Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut resembling their European counterparts.

From the Space Needle to the Chrysler Building, you can look at the whole “American Gothic” series in the gallery below.
