International Union of Architects

Notre Dame de Paris

As president of the International Union of Architects, and personally, it is heartening to receive so many expressions of profound sorrow at the devastation of Notre Dame.  


Catastrophe can give new life and new meaning to a place that came from the ages and will endure through the ages.


The UIA will follow closely the means by which all who wish can contribute to the Cathedral's reconstruction, and we will keep you informed of what we learn.


Thomas Vonier, President


"Every face, every stone, of this venerable monument is a page not only of the history of the country, but of the history of science and art . . . a symphony in stone."


-- Victor Hugo
