Abstract

Hispanic Late Gothic architecture has peculiar characteristics by the integration of the forms from the north and center of Europe, the Islamic contribution and the creativity of the Hispanic architects. Those peculiar forms were transmitted in the organization of factories, where the learning was strictly regulated and the professional and familiar ties were mixed. In the same way, the asimilation of techniques and forms in those factories generate an interesting form to recreate the forms of the past and to elaborate new solutions.
