| Divine Intervention |
As a response to Notre-Dame’s tragic fire, ‘Divine intervention’ stands as an inflatable balloon-like protective layer which would sit on top of the gothic monument. The balloon would take to the sky at night and only come down during the day. It also intends to be a temporary prosthetic solution, and is to be removed once a winning design is chosen.
As Notre-Dame sits within its conservative context, any permanent addition would require sensitive evaluation, a process which may require years.
As such, the balloon intends to allow architects and designers to reflect, imagine, and explore within the ‘volume’ of the bubble sitting on top of the prestigious cathedral.
