Designer's Description

Notre-Dame CathedralCarbon quadruple spireWe think that the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral as a World Heritage Site should be restored as it was, but since the spire has been changed in the past, we will rebuild the spire with the latest technology and design . The carbon tube extending in a cruciform toward the center from the existing four pillars at the intersection of the cruciform plane is divided into four and spirally extends to a point in the sky.Four carbon tubes with different radiuses and rotations support each other to form a light, strong and tough framework, and invite people to the sky.The new carbon quadruple spire is reborn as a new landmark in harmony with the decorative motif of Notre Dame in form.
