Noiers, Geoffrey de

Noiers, Geoffrey de (fl. 1189–c.1200). Probably the Norman-French master-mason responsible for part of the rebuilding of the Gothic Lincoln Cathedral from 1192. The vault of St Hugh's Choir (1192–1200), by him, is probably the first case in Gothic Europe where the emphasis was on decorative rather than structural ribs, and he was perhaps also responsible for the three-dimensional blind overlaid arcading on the walls of St Hugh's Choir. However, Richard the Mason (fl. 1190s) was also involved, and the original design of the Gothic Cathedral may be his.
