  Triforium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Malmesbury Abbey, Malmesbury, Wiltshire, England showing the triforium, with its rounded arches and chevron mouldings, each arch supported by four small arches on columns.
On account of the richness of its mouldings and carved ornament in the sculpture introduced in the spandrils, it became the most highly decorated feature of the interior, the triforium at Lincoln being one of the most beautiful compositions of Gothic architecture.
In the great cathedrals and abbeys the triforium was often occupied by persons who came to witness various ceremonies, and in early days was probably utilized by the monks and clergy for work connected with the church.

The triforium was thus located beneath the clerestory windows and above the side-aisle vaults and corresponded on the exterior to the lean-to roof over the aisle.
In the north the triforium had arched openings with apertures in the wall behind it to ventilate the roof space over the aisle.
In Gothic churches, the depth behind the triforium arcades was generally limited to the thickness of the nave wall, into which a narrow passageway was built to furnish a second-story circulation around the church.

The nave is three-story elevation of the arcade, triforium and clerestory.
The elevation of the nave is vertical overlaid recursively.
Also the unity of elevation is brought by participation of triforium in the overall lightening of the wall and the colonnettes responding to the vault ribs without being disturbed any horizontal elements.

 Nave   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In Romanesque and Gothic Christian abbey, cathedral and church architecture, the nave is the central approach to the high altar.
In Romanesque constructions, where a gallery was required to allow passage above the aisles, an addition to the elevation of the nave was inserted, called a triforium.
In later styles the triforium was eliminated, the aisles lowered and great expanses of stained glass took the place of the clerestory windows, as at Bath Abbey (illustration, left).

 Chartres - la nef de la cathédrale gothique
Les arcades du triforium forment une galerie horizontale qui se continue imperturbablement sur toute la longueur de la nef, mais les faisceaux de colonnes continuellement traversent cette frise et la découpent en morceaux.
Cette expression toutefois se mêle à une expression analytique, puisque si l'on a vu précédemment que le triforium était régulièrement coupé par les faisceaux de colonnes, dans l'autre sens c'est la galerie creuse du triforium qui crée une nette coupure horizontale qui tranche le mouvement ascendant du mur de la nef.
Le triforium se génère par la répétition de différentes arcades qui sont toutes les mêmes, et de façon similaire l'ensemble de la nef se génère par la répétition de différentes travées qui sont toutes les mêmes.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Gothic Architecture
It will be seen that the main dispositions of the Gothic plan are derived from Carolingian developments of Byzantine modifications of the early Christian basilica, itself but an adaptation of that of pagan Rome; from the Lombards, however, had been acquired three elements which were to lie at the base of Gothic construction.
As yet it was hidden under the triforium roof and did not declare itself to the eye.
The fruit of the Cluniac reform working on Norman blood had been the evolution of the main lines of the Gothic plan (barring the eastern termination, or chevet) together with the development of the Gothic system of vaulting and the Gothic principle of concentrated thrusts met by pier buttresses and flying buttresses.

During the first half century of development of the gothic style, the triforium was tall and slender, equivalent in height to the clerestory and thus dividing the elevation in three nearly equal levels.
In the course of the 13th century, the triforium will become smaller and smaller, tending to disappear as refinements in technology permit a more unified elevation open to outside light.
The earliest gothic buildings show two competing types of elevation: the three-story elevation, such as is found at Paris and Chartres, and the four-story elevation, as at Noyon.

 La Cathédral de Notre Dame   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The appearance of the interior was radically transformed in the mid-13th century when the small clerestory windows typical of the Early Gothic style were enlarged downward and filled with High Gothic tracery.
Originally, the interior had the four-story elevation common to many Early Gothic churches, and the triforium had large round openings instead of the normal arcades.
In his restoration (begun 1844), Eugene Emmanuel Viollet-le-duc reinstated the triforium and small clerestory windows in the eastern bay of the nave.
