Notre-Dame de Paris Truss Project: Exhibition Closing Gala

April 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Come see hands-on demonstrations and visual presentations of Notre-Dame de Paris’s wooden roof structure, its history, and how it was made.

Three years after a devastating fire ripped through Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, the effort to restore the iconic landmark is on display in Atlanta through April 24.

This exhibition was at the Smithsonian Institution, Catholic University and the National Building Museum in Washington D.C. in 2021 and is a unique opportunity for people in Atlanta to learn more about this historic work and the architectural and cultural heritage of Notre Dame de Paris.

On April 24, learn about the tools, methods, and materials that would have been used to build this medieval architectural icon, join in a hands-on demonstration of traditional timber framing raising techniques, and discover how Handshouse Studio is bringing its educational mission to the task of recovering the heritage lost in the 2019 fire.
