    Macron says Notre Dame should be rebuilt consistent with the modern, diverse France – and architects suggest a glass roof, steel spire and minaret

    By Emma R. 23 April 2019



    Macron’s initial promise to restore the magnificent cathedral to its former glory has been shoved aside. Now he says it will be rebuilt “consistent with our modern, diverse nation”, and at the same time the French Government has announced an international competition to redesign the Notre Dame spire.

    After the announcement designers haven’t missed the opportunity to respond with their ideas, proposing that it should not be faithfully restored, but rebuilt with “contemporary” features such as a glass roof, steel spire, or even a minaret.

    The Telegraph published an article claiming it would be a “travesty” to restore Notre Dame, while Rolling Stone quoted a Harvard architecture historian as saying that the burning of a building “so overburdened with meaning… feels like an act of liberation.”

    Lord Norman Foster, arguably Britain’s most famous modern architect, has unveiled a design topping the ancient cathedral with a glass and steel canopy with a featureless glass and steel spire, which he describes as “a work of art about light” which would be “contemporary and very spiritual and capture the confident spirit of the time”.

    Ian Ritchie, a modern architect most famous for the so-called Spire of Dublin – a metal spike erected in the Irish capital – is mulling a proposal along similar lines, which he describes as “a refracting, super-slender reflecting crystal to heaven” or a “beautiful contemporary tracery of glass crystals and stainless steel” – i.e. a featureless glass and steel spire.

    Perhaps most controversial is a proposal in Domus, the architecture magazine, by Tom Wilkinson, for the fallen spire to be replaced with an Islamic minaret, to memorialize Algerians who protested the French government in the 1960s.

    “These victims of the state could be memorialized by replacing the spire with – why not? – a graceful minaret”, Wilkinson insisted.

    Naw, they're going to put a Green pyramid or probably some type of Glass pyramid on top of it. MARK MY WORD!!!!!

    something like this or along the lines of this: https://tse1.mm.bing.net/th?id=OIP.-...95&w=230&h=106

    Just about 100% that fire was set. They most likely started the renovation project on the building in order to set up a smoke screen for burning it down.

    Article is more appropriate for Other Topics than General Discussion since immigration is not mentioned so moving now. Thank you for posting.

    Thank goodness, the French Senate still has two live brain cells still connected. Macron, you're a total idiot.
