Regardless of the beauty of the site, one forgets one very important parameter. The sound. Gothic naves , due to the crenelation of the stones and the height do create an acoustic ambiance that is not noticed at once. Like a subliminal feeling it does accompany your experience and makes it grander... Sound is an important element of our memory for spaces. The comfort factor we perceive is based on a multitude of parameters. The Germans have a word for Comfort Zone in a building "Klima Behaglichkeit " it is limited to a series of quantitative factors unfortunately. The reality of our perception of space is multiple. We as little animals, our memory is based on all our senses. Vision is only one, and our sense of comfort or fear is far more complex.
