Eugène Viollet-le-Duc
To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Gothic Revival architect Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc, the "la Cité de l'Architecture et du patrimoine" in Paris presents an exhibition entitled "Viollet-le-Duc, les visions d'un architecte" ("Viollet-le-Duc, the visions of an architect"), on show until 9 March 2015. Known for his interpretive and controversial restorations of medieval buildings, Viollet-le-Duc impressed upon French society the richness of French historical heritage and the need for its preservation.
