Swedish Firm Proposes New Design for Paris Cathedral

Swedish design firm, Ulf Mejergren Architects, has proposed a design for the restoration of the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

The firm suggested the construction of a cross-shaped public pool that will take over the entire rooftop space, as reported by The Guardian, and that it would be watched over by statues of the 12 apostles.

“We are proposing a meditative public space; a complementary spatial experience to the building with unmatched views over Paris. We think that the cathedral looks much better without both the spire and the lead-clad roof,” a spokesperson for the design firm told Lonely Planet.
