Architects for Notre-Dame Spire

International call for architects to design new spire, reports the BBC today.

France is to invite architects from around the world to submit their designs for a new spire to sit atop a renovated Notre-Dame Cathedral.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe told reporters they hoped for “a new spire that is adapted to the techniques and the challenges of our era”.

The spire was completely destroyed in the blaze that tore through the 850-year-old Gothic building’s roof.
