  7. 7. Left: Saint-Sernin, Toulouse Right: Amiens Cathedral The heavy ribbed vault of the Romanesque building are made possible by thick walls, heavy cruciform piers, and few windows. Ribbed vaults are structurally more efficient than a barrel vault that evenly distributes the weight and thrust along the wall. A ribbed vault directs thrust to specific points in the masonry--where the ribs meet the wall at the clerestory level. These in turn are supported by the use of flying buttresses visible on the outside of the building.
