France asks whether Notre-Dame's spire should be rebuilt as it was?

Debris are seen inside Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, April 16, 2019.

In a statement regarding its involvement in the restoration process of Notre-Dame, an Ubisoft spokesperson said that the company is willing to help in any way it can, although the digital model of the building isn't quite one to one with the real thing.

France will open the redesign of the Notre Dame cathedral's iconic roofline to worldwide architects after Monday night's blaze gutted the oak-framed structure and sent its 300-foot spire crashing through its vaulted ceiling, the Prime Minister said on Wednesday. Its spire collapsed and the roof was destroyed in the fire.

"The end of the fire doesn't mean the edifice is totally saved".

"Or if, as is often the case in the evolution of heritage, we should endow Notre Dame with a new spire".

"No one is talking about us", he said.

Unity's version of Notre-Dame is not entirely historically accurate, as the cathedral's spires were added to its real-life counterpart after the events of the game.

A spokesman for the Paris prosecutor's office later clarified that it was church staff, not firefighters, who looked into the initial alarm.

In the aftermath of the Notre Dame fire, many have speculated that Unity's recreation of the church could prove instrumental in restoration efforts.

"I think it's proof they can rebuild without the help of the game, but in the meantime it's there for people to explore", he said. "That to me is indispensable", said Mouton, who logged each of the timber beams in Notre-Dame's attic that was dubbed the "forest".

French billionaire Bernard Arnault and his LVMH luxury conglomerate, rival high-end designer goods group Kering, Total oil company and cosmetics giant L'Oreal each pledged 100 million euros or more.

Experts have put this in the threshold of realism - estimating the restoration would cost into to the hundreds of millions, although they acknowledge it is too early to be certain.

Thousands of Parisians and tourists watched in horror Monday as flames engulfed the building and rescuers tried to save as much as they could of the cathedral's treasures. The iconic bell towers survived, but the cathedral's spire and its 13th century roof collapsed.

One firefighter was injured but no one else was hurt, with the fire starting at around 6:30 p.m. after the building was closed to the public for the evening.

The Crown of Thorns, regarded as Notre Dame's most sacred relic, was among the treasures quickly transported after the fire broke out, authorities said.

Since Monday's disaster, the city of Paris has promised 50 million euros ($56m) for repairs, and the regional government another 10 million euros ($11m).

Speaking Tuesday, he said the cathedral's roof can not be rebuilt exactly as it was before the fire because "we don't, at the moment, have trees on our territory of the size that were cut in the 13th century".
