Re: Notre-Dame cathedral on fire in Paris

Sorry I did not follow more closely this thread. As I said, the frenchs were polled and a huge majorjty was for rebuilding as it was. The fact that architects, even french architects, are posting various project is just due to the vested interest hey have in the advertising and money they hope to get.
