CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Ten visions for a new Roman Catholic cathedral in Haiti's capital will be on display at the University of Miami School of Architecture.
The designs were the finalists in a competition that sought ideas for rebuilding Notre Dame de l'Assomption Cathedral in Port-au-Prince. The original cathedral was ruined by the massive earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010.
The dean of Miami's architecture school led a six-member panel that met last month to consider 134 designs submitted for the competition. A team led by Segundo Cardona of SCF Architectos in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, was named the winner. Cardona's design links the cathedral's ruins with a new rotunda built around a central altar.
An exhibit featuring designs by Cardona and other finalists opens Thursday at the architecture school.
