Viollet-le-Duc's birthday honoured with Google Doodle

Google celebrated the 200th anniversary of Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc’s birthday today (27 Janaury) with a gothic revival adaptation of their logo

The French architect, who famously restored Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, is the latest historical figure to be immortalised with a Google Doodle.

He joins architectural heavyweights that include Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van Der Rohe, Kenzo Tange and Antoni Gaudí to be honored by the internet giant.
