On April 15th, 2019, at around 18:20, the iconic and much loved Notre Dame was stuck with fire and ultimately crumbled to the ground. As hard as it was to take any positives from such a tragic event, there was one or two. The main being miraculously nobody received any life-threatening injuries, which is a blessing considering the Notre Dame sees in and around 13 million visitors annually. The second being how well the community and world as a whole rallied behind each other to support great causes to bring this stunning piece of architecture back to life.
The French government set a 5-year goal for the cathedrals redevelopment, which the culture ministry announced $1.07 billion would be given to the massive project. It was believed a new design was in the pipeline. Most notably a swimming pool or a Mcdonald’s built on the roof. It is now clear that this iconic landmark will be returning to its original designs. Nobody is happier than local Parisians to hear the news. After over 250 tonnes of bricks and scaffolding have been removed this worthwhile project will take place. This should now happen in 2021 after plans had been halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
