    I think what would work better is a steel frame to replace the timbers and rebuild the roof in class gothic style, but with more gothic flare, like the interior of York cathedral. That would be more daring and keep the history of the building as it is a church.

    Cool as this looks, I have to disagree. It's a cathedral, house of God. can't they just use steel to support the roof?

    The idea is spectacular. Two things come to mind why this will never become reality. One, it's a building with historical significance and to preserve that it should be restored to the original state. And two, it's a church, a Catholic one, and we know how they love innovation. Shame, because this proposed plan could have resulted in more people visiting the place regularly than for a long time.

    It's a beautiful idea, a makes a reflecting are that one could be more spiritual connected too, God and Jesus Christ Holy. Rather than put a roof on it. God bless amen.

    Robbe Nagel "I have to admit, it looks really cool." I agree - I would just imagine this in my grandparents' garden. Notre Dame is therefore famous, because it is not only a beautiful building, but also extremely old - and this adds to its value. I have never seen such a building monument, which would not lose its value by "modernization".

    I think we’ll end up using modern materials for a RESTORATION not a renovation.... Notre Dame is not a mall. I think the entire point of doing work on Notre Dame is to reverse the effects of the fire? Not cause leaking problems as close as 20 years down the line that’d be pathetic and would simply prove that older buildings are much better suited for planet Earth than modern...

    this is an excellent solution that blends tradition with modern technology and direct social interaction. however it does not "allow" for creativity. that is done by humans. it can be expected to foster social interaction, but that can be a hindrance to creativity just as easily as it may encourage it. you really need better writers!

    Finally the proper solution. Anyone who thinks this is disrespectful is high on something. It's a Church, anything that encourages people to gather there helps it fulfill its purpose. Next thing you know we will have the Kooks from the UK wanting to build 13th century things only to cover them up with successive rehabs that have been done along the way. BIggest theft of Taxpayer Money I Have ever witnessed, but a bunch of blowhard Architects all got new BMWs..

    On one hand: I liked her better the way she was before the fire. On the hand: I don't want her to burn down again. It's a nice nod to the original unlike most modern buildings, but I don't think a glass garden is needed.

    The roof has to be kept with the same lead, maybe you can play with spire since it's not original, but I think the roof should not be played around with. The spire is just a small piece but a good statement piece

    If the roof was rebuilt as it was originally (using wood) than, I'd have to say that the restoration architects aren't thinking straight. 2020 - rebuild the roof to LOOK the same but, for goodness sake use reinforced steal and concrete - not timber and wood. This glass concept is cool, but why the trees? Trees have roots don't they? How could they thrive within an attic space?

    After the fire last year I never cried, I thought I was sure they are going to restore the same exact roof and the spire, so instead of rusty old it be just brand new from the 12th century looking they do, I wasn't thinking this would end like that like how I feel bad about the two twin towers in New York never got rebuilt that people there wanted it back not the freedom tower and this new roof makes it not look like a decent 800 year old cathedral nor like in the animation movie I got into recently with the animated Disney version of Notre Dame from The Hunchback of Notre Dame and what, they shall not design like that, it doesn't feel right for the Notre Dame lovers, cus it's not a garden apartment building!

    How about restoring the visual appearance of the cathedral to how it was before the fire.....but using modern more fire resistant materials and modern building safety standards? Modernists get the updates they want only with modern building materials while traditionalists get back the cathedral as how it looked before. But the real winner would be the cathedral itself in that it would get fire resistant materials and work that meets modern building codes making it less likely for a major fire like what happened to occur again.

    Building it back to it's original shape is architectural falacy because we do not longer live in the time when the original roof was made. Notre Dame is not original from one epoque but a palimpsest of many. Just like Le Duc's XIX century spire was, in it's time, a modern re imagination of how ideal gothic should be. (Neo gothic) So, why not honor the memory of the fire with XXI century adition?

    The original shape before the fire, which makes the building beautiful and not a disgusting postmodernist grotesque aberration. "We" don't need to honor the memory of a catastrophe by doing another. And are you even French? because this whole "we" is very funny, you have no power to say what the French have to do with their cultural legacy

    I like it. It’s a really pretty idea. The only thing that pisses me off, is that they would build the roof with wood. That’s a good chunk of the reason why the fire spread so easily, was because of the wood roof.
