Biography

It is odd that the jury gave the 1932 prizes to the three Parisian architects Saacké, Pierre Bailly (/athletes/show/920268) and Pierre Montenot (/athletes/show/921686) for their plan of a bullring, as it was difficult to connect bullfighting with the Olympic Movement. Saacké was involved in the 1930s in several construction projects in Venezuela, including a bank building in Maracay, now the local Museum of Anthropology and History. As early as 1925 he planned the construction of the Stade Jean Bouin in Paris, which was demolished in 2010. In 1942 he designed the Technical Centre for Aluminum, which later became the seat of the French Football Federation (FFF). The grandfather of the French director Jean-Jacques Vierne, Saacké planned numerous projects together with Bailly, including the Pavillon des Diamantaires for the building exhibition "1925, When Art Deco Beguiled the World" in Paris, among them the Stade Jean Bouin, and several villas and projects in Venezuela.
