Shepherd Studio designs a giant inflatable for Notre Dame

The french senate decided to rebuild Notre Dame cathedral to its “last known visual state”, but the Shepherd Studio conceptually developed a possible temporary reconstruction of the cathedral.

The proposal is entitled “Divine Intervention” and includes a huge protective layer in the form of an inflatable balloon, which would rest on the mammoth Gothic monument that, obviusly, would not be a permanent solution. The floating giant would take flight at night and descend during the day.

Shepherd Studio’s vision strongly contrasts with the surrounding context. The balloon takes the original shape of the structure and becomes a fantastic inflatable, sitting on top of the prestigious cathedral.
