Studio Fuksas launched the project idea for the restoration of the Church of Notre Dame in Paris, France, following the tragic fire of April 15th.
Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas’ proposal for Notre Dame, after the collapse of the spire and part of the roof in the fire, is to create a contemporary structure that dialogues perfectly with the ancient presence.
The project for the spire consists of a kind of very high pinnacle made like a Baccarat crystal, which, like the roof, can be lit up at night and filled with light.
The new element will be a beacon of hope for the future in the night of Paris.
“A crystal spiral symbol of the fragility of history and spirituality. Light as a symbol of immateriality.”
