I don't have any particular emotional attachment to the building, but it's always sad whenever art is destroyed.
I'm glad they managed to save what they did.
What's kind of interesting to me, too, is that man, old buildings used to burn down all the damn time. Just whole cities, gone.
@cambrian_era the city of Porto used to be the biggest in the world until a massive earthquake and fire
@starwall Yeah. It's only recently that we've even had the ability to preserve things. Used to be you just rebuild shit.
@cambrian_era we're still not great at preserving things. I'm glad that Notre Dame was scanned with like, lasers and shit. we've got very accurate digital recreations to work with while rebuilding this time around but... it will never be the same.
Yeah, like a lot of historical cities like Rome, Paris, London, etc. have been totally rebuilt several times over the past couple of thousand years.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
