    Brief reminder of Part 1 (without mistake ) :
    On 15 April 2019, a fire broke out in Paris Cathedral, causing considerable damage, particularly to the roof structures. After safety and consolidation work, major works are underway to rebuild the building to its original state.

    The restoration continued with the selection and feling of 1000, centenarian oak trees from various regions, necessary for the restoration of the spire and transept. After drying for 12 to 18 months, they will be send to the Notre-Dame charpenters to restore the original work, based on Viollet-le-Duc ' s execution plan. This renovation also include a project starting in 2024 and ending in 2027, for the redevelopement of the cathedral ' s surroundings. The new forecourte is designed as a clearing to enhance the eastern facade of Notre-Dame in a green setting. Around the trees, which will provide shady benchs, a thin sheet of water 5 millimetres high will trickle down from time to time to cool the forecourt in the event of heat waves, creating ephemeral reflections. The cathedral gardens will be integrate into a large 400-metre long riverside park, with more than 130 new trees. In addition, the former underground car park will become an interior promenade with access to the archaeological crypt.

    Despite the months still needed for its reconstruction, Notre-Dame represents a challenge of technical and human prowesse. We can salute the dynamism and competence of the various actors who, under extremely difficult conditions, have participated in restorig the integrity and beauty of the Notre-Dame Cathedral of Paris.
