Biography

Pierre Montenot initially built town houses in Paris. Starting around 1930, he formed a team with Gustave Saacké and Pierre Bailly for a short time. Together they won the gold medal in the Art Competitions at the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics in the category architecture, architectural designs, for their work Circus For Toros. It is odd that the jury gave the 1932 prizes to the three Parisian architects for their plan of a bullring, as it was difficult to connect bullfighting with the Olympic Movement. Montenot’s pavilion for the 1931 Colonial Exhibition was a popular building in Paris.
