French Senate Passes Bill Demanding Notre Dame be Rebuilt Exactly How It Was Before the Fire

Stipulation quashes Macron’s attempt at ‘modern’ re-design.

Published

on

The French Senate has passed a bill asserting that Notre-Dame must be rebuilt exactly as how it was before a fire nearly destroyed the medieval Catholic cathedral.

“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,” reports the Local.

The bill stands in opposition to President Macron’s announcement, made shortly after the fire, that an international competition of architects would decide the fate of the church.

This was followed by calls from numerous public figures that the rebuild should reflect France’s new modernist “diversity”.

Numerous suggestions on how to rebuild the cathedral sparked outrage, including proposals to turn its roof into a giant swimming pool or a huge greenhouse.

Architecture expert Tom Wilkinson also called for Notre Dame’s fallen spire to be replaced with an Islamic minaret as an apology to Algerian Muslims killed by French police.

As we previously reported, the French government has forbidden state-employed architects from giving interviews to the media about the Notre Dame fire, which destroyed the cathedral’s spire.

The cause of the fire remains a mystery.

Swedish Firm Proposes Turning Notre Dame Roof Into a Giant Swimming Pool

As a “space for thinking and self-reflection”.

Published

A Swedish architecture firm has proposed turning the roof of Notre Dame cathedral in Paris into a giant swimming pool.

Yes, seriously.

In line with the French government’s announcement that a modern, contemporary redesign would be preferred, Stockholm-based Ulf Mejergren Architects (UMA) say the roof of the gothic church should become “a new meditative space with unmatched views over Paris.”

In order to return Notre Dame to “the city and the people” (which was already the situation before the fire), the company wants to install “a large public pool that occupies the whole roof.”

“Our addition is a complementary spatial experience to the building that will match the awe of the great interior; a space for thinking and self-reflection,” said UMA describing their project.

While the proposal sounds bizarre, it’s actually not as bad as some of the other ideas, which include turning the roof of the sacred structure into a giant greenhouse.

Another plan involves turning the roof into a banal garden with a mis-shapen penthouse plonked in the middle.

Architecture expert Tom Wilkinson also called for Notre Dame’s fallen spire to be replaced with an Islamic minaret as an apology to Algerian Muslims killed by French police.

As we previously reported, the French government has forbidden state-employed architects from giving interviews to the media about the Notre Dame fire, which destroyed the cathedral’s spire.

Report: French Government Forbids State Architects From Giving Interviews About Notre Dame

Cause of fire remains a mystery.

Published

on

The French government has reportedly forbidden state-employed architects from giving interviews to the media about the Notre Dame fire.

That’s according to Antoine Pasquier, editor in chief of news outlet Famille Chrétienne.

Pasquier tweeted that France’s Ministry of Culture has ordered government architects who work for Monuments Historiques, the state body responsible for preserving the architectural heritage of France, not to speak to the press.

As we highlighted yesterday, despite authorities ruling the fire an “accident,” the actual cause of the blaze has yet to be determined.

The company responsible for elevators in the cathedral said the power to them was cut by workers leaving the site an hour and a half before the fire started.

Electrical wiring that ran through the roof of the cathedral was also up to standards, according to Notre-Dame spokesman Andre Finot.

A scaffolding firm that worked on the site also said that some its employees defied rules by smoking, but asserted that it was impossible for a cigarette butt to burn old oak beams.

The Paris prosecutor’s office announced that it had not ruled out any hypothesis about the origin of the fire and that all possibilities were still being explored.
