History and Architecture

Ogee

A style of arch used primarily in Britain during the 14th century.The ogee is characterised by a four-centred design; two centres outside the arch and two inside, producing a sinuous, compound curve, part convex and part concave. In practice this produces a vaguely Oriental arch, narrowing to a point at the top.
