Notre Dame: Restoring an Icon

The devastating fire that engulfed Notre Dame Cathedral in April 2019 destroyed beloved parts of that iconic structure, including the timber roof framework and crossing spire. But other crucial elements—notably the 13th-century stone vaults and flying- buttress support system—survived miraculously intact. Restoration is proving to be a long and complicated – and contentious – process as French officials, preservation specialists, structural engineers, and art and architectural historians decide how to rebuild. Join art historian Judy Scott Feldman, PhD, for a discussion on hard questions of historic preservation and what constitutes a proper reconstruction of this iconic cathedral.
