Apologies, didn't see your location.

By mentioning Brazil and how Christian they're it made me think you're one of those current male glorification (actually shaming) representatives they have over there.


If someone actually comes with a statue proposal it should be a statue of a woman with a baby in her arm. Like the ones they have in Marseilles, because again that's the person this cathedral is dedicated to. Cheers.

Why can't architects today design anything?

So? That's the point of rebuilding. Why would anyone want a remembrance of a fire? Cathedrals have burned down several times. This fire is not that special.

Also you wrong, the roof was original and was made out of wood that was over 1000 years old.

I kinda like it.

A crime would be to build that 18th century an abomination of a spire

ok ... ideas to rehabilitate the cover, shot ... but:

-the needle of the twelfth century
-the roof, a vulgar reconstruction of the XVIII

Nor would anything happen to improve the existing.

They're trying the "Louvre" contrast approach, except here it's totally inappropriate. This is a Cathedral, not an observation deck!

This is my proposal for Notre Dame





I mean, just reconstruct it if you can. Architects nowadays are no more than an egomaniac artist, blinded by the desire to be popular and be one of the so called starchitects. The very concept of treating heritage building is minimum intervention(they are being called heritage building for a reason, and being modern is not one of it), if possible no intervention. And the intervention should be more of making sure the building is less vulnerable to fire rather than trying to change how it should looked like.

The problem with architects nowadays is everything should be done with maximum intervention, everything should be eye catching and ended up being a landmark in a modern way, everything should be done so "I" as the architect become popular. I am an architect and i can assure you usually this type of architect gets the highest score and appreciation on architectural school, while architectural history class treated as unnecessary. So it is no wonder indeed that most architects who proposed for Notre Dame Reconstruction ended up trying to force something completely unrelated to be built on Notre Dame.

The Local: French Senate says Notre-Dame must be restored exactly how it was

Quote:
The Senate has now approved the restoration bill already passed by the French parliament to allow work on the structure to be completed in time for the Paris Olympics in 2024 - but requires that the restoration be faithful to the “last known visual state” of the cathedral, in an attempt to check the government, which has launched an international architectural competition soliciting designs for renovation.

It can't be restored exactly the way it was. The old-growth trees used for the roof structure, known affectionately as "the forest," no longer exist in France. I'm afraid the loss here is permanent.

I would presume that doesn't count as part of the "visual state" as it was out of common view.

I actually like. Besides, no one really use the cathedral as a sacred place anymore. Religion is slowly dying.

The architecture firm behind the design of the Apple store, Eight Inc, has submitted it's proposal for the rehabilitation of the Notre Dame Cathedral - using almost entirely architectural glass which mirrors the design of the original roof, spire and Saints.





Personally, I've long been of the view that the Notre Dame should be restored as was, though of all the new designs this is stunning, it has an ethereal quality, almost like a Lalique sculpture on an enormous scale.

Pictures credit to Eight Inc via The Telegraph.

lolilol... Keep dreaming dear... since e.g. the French catholic Church is still well alive (whether such fact suits your franco(coco)-cathophobic agenda or not)...

..I mean, in big French cities...and it's even growing again in terms of faithfuls attending masses on a weekly bases since the last decade, especially in Paris/Lyon/Marseille/Nice/Toulouse/Bordeaux/Strasbourg/Nantes/etc... and especially among the young people / the youth of christian origins.
