Probably not. Stone is way too expensive nowadays.could this event lead to a Gothic Revival in architecture from what we saw during the Victorian era?
This is probably bait, but sure I'll bite.
The Church's property policy will cover it if it's an accident or not. As long as the church themselves didn't intentionally set the fire.
Restoration of St. Patricks Cathederal in NYC was over 175 million dollars and that was with no major structural damage etc. Realistically it could be half a billion or more for Notre Dame
Wow, I guess I typically think it that kind of money building massive sports stadiums. I did not realize how expensive restorations are.
Yeah definitely true. Expect a huge fight between that carrier and the construction company's carrier, though.
Wasn't bait. Just that people use religion as a weapon, and it wouldn't surprise me to wield this in some way.This is probably bait, but sure I'll bite.
I am a religious person. If this is a sign of something, then sure. We'll know what it is in time. Could be that we're not taking care of the planet as we should, or it could be that we shouldn't take things for granted. I don't know. But that isn't important right now.
A beautiful piece of history is being destroyed. So right now we mourn with those that mourn and comfort those who need comfort. As tragic as this is, the best thing is that no one was killed and that pieces were saved.
It's a medieval building made of wood and stone... If the fire catches in the wooden roof (like it looks like it happened) it can go quickly.
I just can't be too sure anymore so I posted that just to be safe! I'm super sorry Books! I did mean what I said though. I'm crushed that the building is in flames but I'm ecstatic that everyone is okay. At the end that helps the sense of loss that everyone is feeling.
You'll possibly be dead before that happens. A restoration / reconstruction of this level on a cathedral (let alone one this old) will take decades to complete.Just catching up with this news. I couldn't believe it at first because we're talking about one of the most treasured buildings in history, it's like if the Mona Lisa got burnt to ashes! But now I'm truly relieved to see that the interior and main structure of the Notre Dame is fine for the most part. Visiting there is still on my bucket list. Though it'll probably take a while till it gets restored AND opened to public again...
Oooh that makes much more sense. For some reason I was under the impression that it was pretty much all stonework and that the rooms would be isolated enough to contain the fires/damage. Guess that shows how much I know medieval architecture.
For sure that's the important part. And ultimately, it can and will be rebuilt eventually. If it can survive the French Revolution, it can survive anythingmI just can't be too sure anymore so I posted that just to be safe! I'm super sorry Books! I did mean what I said though. I'm crushed that the building is in flames but I'm ecstatic that everyone is okay. At the end that helps the sense of loss that everyone is feeling.
