WikiProject Missing articles is looking for an article on:Abamurus...the definition that I could find seems to say its a different word for Buttress: A buttress, or second wall, added to strengthen another.

According to: : Britton, John, F.S.A. A Dictionary of the Architecture and Archaeology of the Middle Ages. J. Le Keux, illus. London: Longman, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longmans, Paternoster Row; and the Author, Burton Street, 1838. 2.


Can someone double check me and add it maybe?Legotech (talk) 20:50, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

something similar to a buttress[edit]

What is the translation to the english language for this sort of arches between buildings in narrow alleys?

In Germany it is called Schwibbogen (schwibb arch) or Schwebebogen (float arch)(freestanding arch). I got the following answers but i think that these are not the corect translations for this arches.

A quick google suggest either candle arch, floating arch, or flying buttress. There is an interesting article about it here.
