Auguste Perret

Feb 12, 1874 - Feb 25, 1954

Auguste Perret was a French architect and a pioneer of the architectural use of reinforced concrete. His major works include the Théatre des Champs-Élysées, the first Art Deco building in Paris; the Church of Notre-Dame du Raincy; the Mobilier Nationale in Paris; and the French Economic, Social and Environmental Council building in Paris. After World War II he designed a group of buildings in the centre of the port city of Le Havre, which had been almost entirely destroyed during the war. In 2005, his post-World War II reconstruction of that city was declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site.
