For stories on the Notre Dame Cathedral burning, contact Krupali Krusche, University of Notre Dame expert on historical preservation of buildings.

Krusche is the associate dean for research, scholarship and creative work at Notre Dame's School of Architecture.  

She has been involved in the digital preservation of the Taj Mahal and the Vatican's Belvedere Courtyard. 

She says: 

As Notre Dame Cathedral’s stone now cools the city will have to join hands in its rebuilding process. Much of the stone shell is very intact and gives a strong sense of hope for the rebuilding effort. 

Today the structure will have to be inspected for safety to enter and then the debris will have to be cleared to understand what survived the test of those fires. 

The rebuilding process will have to start with reconstructing the roof first to protect the inside. Then the exhaustive interior core will have to be rebuild piece after piece.
