France to restore Notre-Dame Cathedral as it was before inferno

French President Emmanuel Macron announced Thursday that Paris’ Notre-Dame Cathedral will be rebuilt as it was before being engulfed in a fire last year, dropping the unpopular idea of building a modern spire atop the centuries-old building. The reconstruction process has been plagued by delays but Macron hopes that it would be ready by 2024, when Paris is due to host the Olympic Games.

Good I have no idea why massive redesigns were even on the table they were refurbishing it in the first place not redesigning it.

Good news. No reason to redesign it and risk creating unforeseen consequences while repairing this great building.
