Roof over Múrurin

Múrurin: Model with digitally altered roof Múrurin, the walls of the St.Magnus Cathedral at Kirkjubøur, is in bad need of a roof. It will crumble if not protected from the weather. With a roof, it will aslo become a good place for concerts and exhibitions. (There is no need to use the building as a church, the village is well served by the older St.Olav's Church.)

There is a proposal for a low roof. I don't like it at all; it makes the old cathedral look like an outpost for the Nordic House. While I admire the Nordic House, I think Múrurin deserves a taller roof, more in keeping with its sacral origins. Which is why I took the liberty of drawing one on the proposed model.
