An international design competition was launched on April 15, 2012 expected to produce a design that will inform the reconstruction of Notre Dame de l’Assomption, the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Port-au-Prince, Haiti destroyed 2 years ago.
In an article appearing in the current issue of Faith&Form, a magazine dedicated to the architecture of places of worship, Mgr Guire Poulard, Archbishop of Port-au-Prince calls on architects of the world to offer their ideas for building a new cathedral. He writes that the “ideal design must engage the future and celebrate life.” He continues in noting that a successful plan “must be mindful of the past and memorialize the thousands who died and were injured in the earthquake of January 12, 2010”
Details of the competition open to architects of the world are provided on the site at www.ndapap.org. The site also contains historical information and other data on the destroyed structure and construction site.
