Our foundation supports the making of an oak tree framework from our woodlands.
To the extent possible, our foundation recommends an identical restoration of the original framework, thanks to modern design and fabrication processes.
Nevertheless, the cathedral restoration will be inevitably conditioned to several unknown factors as of today, and among others, the cathedral diagnosis' outcome, future architectural decisions (geometry, volume, potential public accessibility) along with, the shape, the weight and the function of the new spire.
Through its manifesto, our foundation will prove that the new wood framework will address and satisfy all of the dimensional, technical and architectural concerns.

Our mission is to enable the authorities and public decision-makers, to consider and revise a reference document (i.e. Manifesto for Notre-Dame de Paris) highlighting the numerous available wood framework options designed for the cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris.
