Biography

French landscape architect Jacques Lambert won two medals at the 1928 Art Competitions - a silver one in the category Designs For Town Planning for his work Vue perspective du Stade de Versailles (Perspective View upon the Versailles Stadium), and a bronze one in the category Architecture for the same work. So far, no documents have been found that provide information on the submitted work. In 1925, however, Lambert planned the construction of the Stade Jean Bouin in Paris approximately 12 km NE of Versailles, which was demolished in 2010 and reopened after a major modification. He submitted several other projects including a tennis stadium (3 exhibits), an indoor tennis stadium with surrounding and a golf clubhouse.

Lambert studied at the École des Beaux-Arts since 1911 and graduated in 1920 with the Villa Le Parisien in the forest of Fontainebleau. He worked as an architect in Paris between 1926 and 1942 and was temporarily associated with Gustave Saacke. In 1929 he was invited to come to New York to study Manhattan’s playgrounds and parks. A member of S.A.D.G. (Société des architectes diplômés du gouvernement), he was appointed Officer of the Legion of Honor in 1932. His father Georges Lambert (1858-1925) was a painter, and both were buried in the ancient cemetery of Neuilly-sur-Seine in the same grave.
