It is interesting how many characteristics of the Gothic period came simply in order to accommodate for the stained glass. Flying buttresses, for example, became popular during the period mainly because they allowed the walls to be able to support the stained glass. It did created a very beautiful and unique design, though! It makes me wonder how the period might have evolved if stained glass had not become so popular.
