Notre Dame: How a rebuilt cathedral could be just as wonderful

Claire Smith, Jordan Ralph

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Unlike other places of deep cultural significance, which may be destroyed forever due to commercial development, Notre Dame can be rebuilt. With modern technology, it is entirely possible for the cathedral to be recreated with near-accuracy to the original. We can do this and keep the previous building’s spirit and feeling.
