Is Conference Room Air Making You Dumber?

Is Conference Room Air Making You Dumber? You’re holed up with colleagues in a meeting room for two hours, hashing out a plan. Risks are weighed, decisions are made . Then, as you emerge, you realize it was much, much warmer and stuffier in there than in the rest of the office. Small rooms can build up heat and carbon dioxide from our breath — as well as other substances — to an extent that might surprise you. And as it happens, a small body of evidence suggests that when it comes to decision making, indoor air may matter more than we have realized.

Since Notre - Dame Cathedral was devastated by fire last month, design proposals for rebuilding the roof and spire have got more and more ridiculous. Here are seven of the most far-fetched, including a car park, a swimming pool and a McDonald's. The Pool by Ulf Mejergren Architects.

Seven alternative spires for Notre - Dame Cathedral. Share The visualisation shows a modernised version of the roof and spire that retains much of the original's forms. "A middle ground should be reached between acknowledging the past and bringing the innovation of our time," Deroo told Dezeen.

Since Notre-Dame Cathedral was devastated by fire last month, design proposals for rebuilding the roof and spire have got more and more ridiculous. Here are seven of the most far-fetched, including a car park, a swimming pool and a McDonald's.

The Pool by Ulf Mejergren Architects

Rather than topping Notre-Dame with a park, as several designers have suggested, Stockholm studio Ulf Mejergren Architects wants to create a wetter type of public space on top of the cathedral – a swimming pool.

The open-air pool, which would have "unmatched views over Paris", would be surrounded by the 12 statues of the apostles that were removed from the roof before the fire.

Louis Vuitton vs Notre Dame by Pedro Ribs

Pedro Ribs, art director at Brazilian studio Entrequadra Novas Mídias, has envisioned a Notre-Dame rebuilt by Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH), as a response to the corporation's donation of €200 million to the cathedral's renovation fund.

The project sees the cathedral rebuilt as it was before the fire, but with the Louis Vuitton print used across the roof and square in front of the west entrance. The Louis Vuitton Notre-Dame would be complete with the fashion brand's logo placed over the rose windows, and on flags flying from its towers and rebuilt spire.

Notre - Dame , une fin d'après-midi ("A Glimpse of Notre - Dame in the Late Afternoon") is a painting by Henri Matisse from 1902. Its somber coloration is typical of Matisse's works executed between the end of 1901 and the end of 1903, a period of personal difficulties for the artist.

Notre Dame de Paris is a Roman Catholic medieval cathedral located in Paris, France. It is considered to be one of French Gothic Architecture's finest examples and is one of the largest The Hunchback of Notre Dame was written by Victor Hugo in an effort to increase the public appreciation for the cathedral.

Mc Notre-Dame by Unknown

Could Notre-Dame be turned into the world's largest fast food restaurant? A visual created by unknown designer, which was posted on Reddit, would see the cathedral turned into a McDonald's.

The cathedral's roof would be rebuilt in red, to match the roofs of the fast-food chain's typical restaurants, while the spire would be replaced with the Golden Arches – a large yellow M, which is the company's logo.
