Biography

Guy Sabrou was a student of Roger-Henri Expert. He was admitted to the École des Beaux-Arts in 1934 and graduated in 1938 with the project of a Hotel Relais in Southern Tunisia. Between 1949 and 1967 he worked as an architect in Paris’ 14th Arondissement. Here, he constructed the Model for Centre of Physical Culture and Sports at the Porte d’Orleans, which he presented at the 1948 Olympic art competitions. Built in 1920, the old Stade Élisabeth at the Porte d’Orleans was renovated in 1968 according to the plans of Sabrou and is now called Centre sportif Élisabeth. He was a member of the Société des architectes diplômés du gouvernement (S.A.D.G.) since 1941.
