The late American who’ll guide Notre-Dame’s rebuild

Andrew Tallon, a pioneering architectural historian and father of four, died last November from brain cancer, age 49. In 2010, Tallon and a colleague, Paul Blaer, took high-tech equipment into Notre-Dame de Paris and began scanning every interior space of the great cathedral: 1 billion laser point of data in all. Now it has become a blueprint for rebuilding. [1]
