On April 15th, 2019 the world held witnessed the a legendary architectural icon, the Notre-Dame, engulfed in flames.
A few hours later the centuries-old cathedral was secured but it was left severely damaged. The question on everyone’s mind, what happens now ? This question sparked a debate that was heated and emotional but extraordinarily important for the world heritage.

GoArchitect organized a democratic design competition to celebrate this debate and over 200 designers from 56 countries submitted designs. In July, over 30,000 people signed up and voted for their favorite designs.

But this isn’t the end of the story. 

Visions of Notre-Dame is a beautiful, 600 page hardcover book celebrating all 226 designs submitted to The People’s Notre-Dame Cathedral Design Competition. Each design, from the incredible to the wacky, is shown in rich color on large A4 pages.

Visions of Notre-Dame is a limited publication brought to the public through two editions: Signature and Collector’s. Each of these editions are available for pre-order exclusively on Kickstarter.
