Auguste Perret (born Feb. 12, 1874, near Brussels, Belg.—died Feb. 25, 1954, Paris, Fr.), French architect notable for his pioneering contributions to the vocabulary of reinforced-concrete construction.

After World War II he was appointed chief architect for the reconstruction of Le Havre. Notable Perret buildings there are the City Hall and the church of St. Joseph, both designed in 1950 and completed before his death.[1]
