Any serious study of the modern skyscraper must acknowledge its precursor-the Gothic cathedral. This program examines the design, construction, and history of Cologne Cathedral-which, for a grand total of four years, was the tallest building in the world. Dr. Barbara Schock-Werner, the cathedral's resident chief architect, describes political and cultural conditions during Cologne's initial building years and guides viewers through the evolution of the colossal church. Dr. Ulrike Brinkmann, in charge of the cathedral's acres of stained glass, sheds light on the religious meanings and architectural significance of the myriad colored windows.
