Louis Tullius Joachim Visconti (February 11, 1791, Rome - December 29, 1853) was an Italian-born French architect and designer.

Son of the Italian archaeologist and art historian Ennio Quirino Visconti, Visconti designed many Parisian residences, public buildings and squares, including the Place Saint Sulpice, and was the briefly official architect for the Louvre under Napoleon III. He is probably most famed for designing the 1842 tomb of Napoleon at Les Invalides.
