Special Event: Restoring a Gothic Masterpiece Hosted by LAWACTH

On June 2, 2021, the Los Angeles World Affairs Council and Town Hall (LAWACTH) held a special event, “Notre Dame de Paris: Restoring a Gothic Masterpiece”. 

Michel Picaud, President of Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris, and Professor Stephen Murray, Board Member, Lisa and Bernard Selz Professor Emeritus of Medieval Art at Columbia University and a world-renowned expert on Gothic architecture, joined Emily Sottile, Director of the Sacred Space Studio at EverGreene Architectural Arts, in conversation. 

They discussed the vast and complex restoration efforts to Notre-Dame Cathedral, including how the restoration will make the building more resilient, eco-conscious, and able to last another millennium, as well as the relationship between architecture and a place’s identity, and what wisdoms the restoration of Notre-Dame can provide to modern architects, builders, and environmentalists around the world. 

Thank you to the Los Angeles World Affairs Council and Town Hall for hosting this wonderful event, and a special thanks to Consul General Julie Duhaut-Bedos and the French Consulate of Los Angeles.
