The Notre Dame Roof Might Be Rebuilt as a Greenhouse
In the wake of the Notre Dame fire in Paris, discussion is now swirling around how to properly restore the damaged parts of the iconic cathedral. The roof was among Notre Dame’s most heavily devastated structural elements, and one French design studio has proposed replacing it with something resembling a greenhouse. After the roof’s destruction, the French government asked for submissions for the structure’s redesign. According to French prime minister Edouard Phillipe, the redesign should be “adapted to the techniques and challenges of our era.” Paris-based architects Studio NAB is answering the call with a design that certainly addresses social and environmental concerns.
