The winners of the architecture prize, [EugÃ¨ne-Edouard Monod] and [Alphonse LaverriÃ¨re], had already taken part in the IOC-sponsored International Architecture Competition, held in Lausanne in 1911. With their design entitled (A Modern Olympia on the Right Bank of Lake Geneva), they had earned the first prize. For Stockholm 1912, they sent in a derivative work (Building Plan of a Modern Stadium). Despite the originality requirement for the Olympic art competitions, the jury (which may have consisted solely of [Pierre, Baron de Coubertin] himself) apparently did not notice - or bother.
The names of the 1912 Olympic art competitors mostly derive from an anonymous piece of paper in the IOC archives. Although deciphered by Richard Stanton, not all of the names have been matched to known architects, notably Laffen, Eccard and Rees.
