Nearly a 1000 years old. Roof and spire has collapsed. They say it was a renovation disaster. A true shame.

my cousin is an architect and he referenced the cathedral, and architects of the past like wright as some of his inspirations and yeah, I hope the fire does not do too much damage.

I think it's pretty much a total loss. The roof collapsed, and the spire fell. They can (and surely will) reconstruct it...but it isn't going to be the same building.

Well, stone won't burn...but it will split and crumble. I'm sure they will try to use as many of the original stone blocks as they can...but like I said...it won't be the same building.

Okay the new update is they were able to save the main building by the looks of it all is the roof and the Spires everything else is fine the artifacts are safe as excited my guests are going to rebuild it and restore it back to what it originally look like it's just going to be a brand new roof Inspire but they were able to salvage and save the main building


Not related but kind of a scary thought that I was watching a documentary hour-by-hour of the London Fire at the same time this is happening

Are you an advanced form of bot or something? I have my suspicions. 

 

So many of the words you use are similar sounding words, but not words that I think would be auto-corrected...

Ubisoft is donating $560,000+, and offering assistance in the form of concept art and 3D models in the rebuilding process of the building. You know...useless video game stuff. 

 

And as great as that all is, I've been reading the most asinine comments on facebook about it. Stuff like "we can't feed the homeless, but we can rebuild a church"..."nice to see where the priorities of millionaires lie", "Flint Michigan needs clean water", etc. It's like...dude...this is about the arts preserving the arts. It isn't even a religious thing. It's about history and art, which were a driving factor behind the existence of the AC franchise, and are obviously important to the Ubisoft team. I swear...I hate people. You go out of your way to do good, and people still want you to do something else.

I've seen stuff like that posted online. It's really annoying, like " there are starving kids in Africa yet everyones concerned over a church burning ". These people don't seem to realize that being concerned over a church that contains centuries worth of art and history burning doesn't mean you aren't concerned about other issues.

I've seen people on Twitter actively celebrating Notre Dame burning and hoping for worse.

"Do good." Problem is, they can do good in other places too, or at least, the wealthy are getting criticized for being able to fund hundreds of millions of dollars for a building but won't even do anything for Flint or the three black churches burned down by a white supremacist.

 

 

 

 

I think people are happy with Notre Dame burning because of France's history with colonization and how religious places of worship usually are okay with pedophilia.
