Ambulatory, 1140-1144.
One of the earliest examples of gothic architecture, aiming at the same time to be colossal as well as light. Designed at the request of abbot Suger, one of the most significant innovative elements of the new style was the continuity of the windows, "the wonderful and uninterrupted light of the most sacred windows."
