Chedanne, Georges (1861–1940). French architect. At the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, he came to notice with his drawings for the restoration of the Pantheon, Rome (1887). As an architect, some of his designs owed something to Art Nouveau influences, while others exploited the possibilities of exposed iron structures and glass infill (e.g. the elegant Parisien Libéré Office Building, 124 Rue de Réaumur, Paris (1903–4) ). His Galeries Lafayettes in Paris was one of the most impressive and elegant of the great department-stores, designed with a framed structure using iron.
