WHY THE ARCHITECTURE?

Besides being a fan of art and architecture in general, Winston always appreciated the long-term outlook of Medieval builders in creating their legacy.  These architects and builders set out to build grand churches and cathedrals knowing that they may not see them completed in their lifetime, yet built something lasting for the sake of their children and future generations.
