Listen: Windsor Castle, Senator Bernie Sanders And Francis Maude discussed on All Things Considered
"He joins us now from London welcome to the program. Good evening. So let's talk about the scale of damage to Windsor Castle. What happened with that fire? How much damage did it 'cause? A little damage. We saw that time that it started in in the private chapel part of the costal extended through a suite of joining runs the state dining room that was also a couple of the lodge of the keys rooms, and in particular, though was the great soldiers hole, which has what missed the state banquets take place. How did architects approach this restoration project? I mean, it must have been daunting, given the fire damage everyone's always very upset by and it's easy to see why what you soon find of able to look at what remains is way Ford from that tools. Regaining loss of of waspy Lofton also bringing foolish and things that should be in concealed on the neutral rations to the building we were able to unpick some of the latest rations it should be done to the medieval castle on that. She made the building before as was also uncovering. A lot of the medieval Rusen was full kitchen. So to that extent the things to be have to be discovered as those ultimate dysfunction press of the five people have been looking at Notre Dame and looking at the aspects of the building that were preserved. How significant is that when one is taking on a restoration project. How how much does that help? There's always a process of analysis at the beginning of like this. Well, people we won't now to is to stabilize the standing remains. And then having stabilized it you can then move in and do from a safe found Tisch point a thorough investigation all the daybreak which has fallen from the roof from from elsewhere, and within that you may well find the quite lost chunks in the tail which can be reincorporated into the rebuilt cathedral. And this is the process that takes a while to do this little say a needful a analysis of the wolves themselves because the limestone can be back effected by high temperatures in five the we then build up a full picture of what can be saved as it stands. And why does the opportunity to to build new elements to make because each will hold on small? French president Emmanuel Macron says the renovation will get done in five years. Does that seem feasible? Windsor Castle was still old in exactly that timeframe the day from five to the celebration of the reopenings restored costal was a span of five years. I knew people a feeding more positive than they did yesterday because more of the cathedral survived scene possible at the time. And I it's a good starting point the five years is a reasonable timeframe for the project architect Francis Maude. He's a director at Donald insult associates in London. Thank you for speaking.
