This article by Kim Willsher in The Guardian describes the newly chosen plan by Bas Smets for redesigning the surrounding area about Notre Dame cathedral in Paris to make it more inviting. This transformation will begin in 2025. Included will be many more trees, a cooling sheet of water on the parvis facing the cathedral, and a new reception center/archaeological museum.
