The form of Paris's Notre Dame Cathedral is rooted in Gothic architecture. The classical additions of Viollet le Duc centuries later were met with fury. Now undergoing restoration in the 21st Century, how will these two architectural visions be represented? In this lecture presented by the Richard Morris Hunt Fellowship, Benjamin Mouton, Hon. AIA, chief architect of Historic Monuments of France, and vice president of ICOMOS, discusses the major restoration of Notre Dame Cathedral, the scientific grounds for historic monuments conservation, and the modern tools used by preservationists today. 1.5 LU HSW (AIA)
