The 'Palingenesis Project' has been designed by Vincent Callebaut Architectures as a rebuild for the Notre-Dame cathedral that puts a focus on futuristic aesthetics with a distinct attention to biomimicry.

The reconstruction plans include 55-degree pitched roofs that are glass to let in natural light that enhances the space, while also supporting greenery within. The glass is also designed to capture energy from the sun that can be used throughout the cathedral to make it a positive energy building that would enhance its position as an iconic part of the Paris landscape.

The Palingenesis Project' for the Notre-Dame cathedral draws its name from the Greek word that translates to "rebirth" or "regeneration" as a nod to the need for a revival after the fire that broke out earlier this year.
