Architecture, Open1

Date 4 May – 27 July 1924
LocationGrand Palais des Champs-Elysées, Paris
Participants21 from 7 countries

21 architects including one woman from seven countries took part, exhibiting a total of 17 projects. Initially, the jury did not want to award medals, but reversed this decision on the intervention of Pierre de Coubertin, but stated that no work was really worthy of an award.

Former Hungarian swimmer Alfréd Hajós who won two gold medals at the first Olympic Games 1896 in Athens, and Dezső Lauber, former Hungarian tennis player and participant in the 1908 London Games, produced a Plan for a Stadium, for which they received the silver medal. Lauber was an architect by trade and later became a secretary-general of the Hungarian Olympic Committee. Hajós was one of only two Olympians, the other being Walter Winans, to win medals in both sport and art competitions.

The gold medal was not awarded. Bronze went to Julien Médécin from Monaco. This was the first and, as of 2020, only medal Monaco has won at the Olympic Games. The architect received the medal for his work Stadium for Monte Carlo.
