Design of new Cathedral in Port-au-Prince revealed

We finally have a glace of what the Cathedral of Port-au-Prince that was destroyed by the 2010 earthquake will look like when it is finally built. What you are looking at is the first picture of the winning design that was submitted by Puerto Rican architect Segundo Cardona and team. The cathedral is an important symbol in Port-au-Prince.


According to the new design approved by a panel of six professionals at the University of Miami School of Architecture, Cathedral of Port-au-Prince building will be shaped in a circular form with retractable walls.

This design looks very elegant and dignified. It is a combination of keeping the memories of the past history of this historic building while at the same time looking toward the future.

According to the plan, the cathedral will be able to hold 1,200 people with overflow room that can hold an additional 600.

It seems that this design of the cathedral is the only one submitted to the public.

We find it to fancy and must be rejected for it looks more or less like a planetarium.

We do want a real cathedral.
