Aesthetic appreciation and scientific investigation combine in this program, which highlights the architectural triumph of the Middle Ages. The engineering achievements of the cathedrals at Chartres, Bourges, and Beauvais are analysed by photoelastic modelling, and the distribution of forces and dangerous stresses are explained.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
