Hénard, Eugène-Alfred (1849–1923). French architect, he made an important contribution to the City of Paris. He was involved in planning the Expositions of 1889 and 1900, and throughout his career worked to conserve the best of the historic fabric, helping to formulate legislation to facilitate the preservation of whole areas, such as the banks of the Seine and the various squares. He also headed the Commission for the extension and improvement of Paris (1908–12). He is regarded as one of the founding-fathers of urbanism.
