Paris’ iconic Notre Dame Cathedral will be rebuilt exactly as it was before the massive fire destroyed much of the iconic structure last year. The decision comes from French President Emmanuel Macron, the church’s current architects, and the general in charge of the reconstruction project.
A year after a devastating fire ravaged the Notre Dame Cathedral, restoration work had to be stopped due to COVID-19. However, French officials are confident the iconic landmark will reopen in 2024 as planned.
Paris’ iconic Notre Dame Cathedral is structurally unstable and urgently needs reinforcing according to an independent report by Paolo Vannucci, a mechanical engineer at the University of Versailles, in France. The report outlines the initial assessment of damage caused by the massive fire that destroyed the landmark’s spire and collapsed its roof.
Design proposals are still pouring in for the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris from the architectural community as they reimagine the landmark’s new look. It has been more than a month now since a devastating fire destroyed the spire and collapsed the roof of the gothic church.
On April 15, the world watched as the Notre-Dame in Paris, constructed eight centuries ago, nearly saw its end in the historic fire that devoured its roofs. Now, Belgian ecological architecture firm Vincent Callebaut Architectures (VCA) proposes a design for the cathedral that brings history, science, art, and spirituality together.
The day after a massive fire destroyed the oak-beamed structure of the Notre Dame and collapsed its spire, French President Emmanuel Macron promised the nation the historic cathedral would be rebuilt—and be “more beautiful than before”—within five years, a timetable many experts consider impossible.
