Notre Dame Pulling from Designs from ‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’ to Rebuild
The world cried on April 15th as one of the most famous landmarks Notre Dame burned into the night. Firefighters worked tirelessly to try and save the structure. It left a lot of questions as to why. And after this horrid event a French millionaire stepped forward and donated over a 100 million euros to the reconstruction of this 800 year old French Gothic cathedral, and yes she will be rebuilt as close as possible to her original glory.
Right away architects have been busying themselves trying to find anything resources to help them build this masterpiece. And where would they find most of the prints to rebuild? None other than Assassin’s Creed: Unity.
The artist behind the works is Caroline Miousse, she spoke to The Verge when the game came out, and the Verge had this to say “Level artist Miousse spent literally years fussing over the details of the building. She poured over photos to get the architecture just right, and worked with texture artists to make sure that each brick was as it should be.”
And reports from GPSWORLD say that this is basically a 3D mapping that will help them restore Notre Dame.
