At the heart of the programme, Alliance Française will present a spectacular exhibition “(Re)births” on the cathedral’s construction and its successive restorations. You will be able to immerse yourself in the history of Notre-Dame, in 3D models, VR, videos, photographs and computer-generated images. From the first stone to the renovation site, come and discover the cathedral, which became one of the symbols of France through the centuries.
16 April to 14 July 2022
Alliance Francaise Theatre de Singapour, 1 Sarkies Rd, Singapore 258130
A fantastic VR experience is offered in the exhibition, for visitors to enjoy a unique virtual tour of Notre-Dame de Paris.
Ubisoft, in the video game Assassin’s Creed: Unity, has reconstructed the cathedral, thanks to 5000 hours of graphic work, guided by historians. “Notre-Dame de Paris: Journey to the Past” offers the possibility of (re)discovering the cathedral from different points of view, some of which are inaccessible to the public (the roof, the flying buttresses…), in the heart of a lively Paris at the end of the 18th century.
Shown to the public for the first time at UNESCO headquarters during Heritage Days in 2019, the experience is now presented at the Archaeological Crypt of Paris, as part of the exhibition “Notre-Dame de Paris: from Victor Hugo to Viollet-le-Duc”, and in the Micro-Folies cultural centres in France.

A huge 1:100 scaled model (1.5 meters long) is also offered in the exhibition, where visitors can enjoy a close up observation on the majestic details of the Notre-Dame de Paris
In collaboration with Matt Chiu, from Imagene Creative Pte Ltd, a 1:100 model was created using 3D printing technology. Due to the huge size, this model was split into 55 individual parts and was printed over the span of 3-weeks. Such model offers an opportunity for visitors to (re)imagine and (re)discover the exterior façade of Notre-Dame from 360 degrees, including angles that are inaccessible to the public with a physical visit.
