Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc (1814-1879) was a Paris-born architect and theorist, known for his sometimes controversial restorations of medieval buildings, including Notre Dame in Paris. His theories on restoration, Gothic architecture, and the form and purpose of structures foresaw a great deal of modern architectural thinking. He spent his later life in Switzerland.
