c. 1408
Parish church, Salzburg

In the main parish church in Salzburg, a cylindrical column was placed in the middle of the polygonal choir space. This allows several vault elements to converge on the column but blocks the view of the axis window. This changes the perception of the space greatly. Burghausen applied the same solution in the hospital church in Landshut.
