Following Monday’s fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, French President Emmanuel Macron told the country on Tuesday that he wants to rebuild the iconic structure in five years. He said restoration of the 19th-century spire, vaulting, and two-thirds of the building’s roof would be done in time for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. The government plans to hold an international architecture competition to redesign a spire to replace the one destroyed in the blaze.
