NTD Notre Dame Competition

Souffle is a proposal which, through an intangible nature, returns a civil, urban and sustainable meaning to the spire of the Notre-Dame Cathedral. The roof, completely lined in photovoltaic tiles, will reflect the sky, the clouds, the blue, the sunsets, and the moon over the course of 24 hours, producing a sufficient amount of energy for the entire cathedral.
The spire is made up of a system of LED projectors that move at the rhythm of the human breath.
The side beams open and close at a 24° angle, as many as there are hours in a day, 12 times per minute, as many as there are human breathing cycles when calm.
The intense central vertical light silhouetted towards the sky disappears with every passage of the Eiffel Tower beacon, cutting through the city skyline every night for centuries, creating a highly symbolic relationship between the two urban elements.
The same light, with the same breath, descends into the central nave of the cathedral, through the fire damaged vault, with a strong emotional effect.
