Notre-Dame de Paris: Restoring A Gothic Masterpiece

Join Emily Sottile, Director of Sacred Spaces, as she moderates a live stream conversation about the restoration of Notre-Dame for the Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Town Hall. Panelists include Michel Picaud, President of Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris, and Professor Stephen Murray, Lisa and Bernard Selz Professor Emeritus of Medieval Art at Columbia University, and a world-renowned expert on Gothic architecture.

Collectively they will discuss the craftsmanship behind the restoration, how a place’s identity is shaped through its architecture, the economic opportunities for job training and job creation, and what modern architects, builders, and environmentalists can learn about creating buildings that can last 1000 years.
