Notre Dame proposal.

A tree as a spire, as a sign of a new pact between human beings and nature – as it is necessary now more then ever. A glasshouse to be built in place of the old, wooden roof, with openings to create a floating garden inside the church.

The proposed roof would be built of glass and its exterior would follow the shape of the previous one. However where there was once a tangle of wooden support beams inside, there would be rows of trees and flowers.

The spire too would be replaced with a tree.
