Architects of the United Nations Head-quarters
The Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar has agreed to dedicate a plaque honoring the Architects of the United Nations Headquarters. The plaque itself was donated anonymously although, in fact, Sir Brian Urquhart, Mr. George Dudley (who was the right-hand assistant of the Chief architect, Mr. Wallace Harrison) and other individuals who collaborated closely with the architects were providing it. The design of the plaque was approved by the Secretary-General in July 1991. The ceremony took place on 17 December 1991. The Secretary-General made a short statement dedicating the plaque.
