Poyet, Bernard (1742–1824). French architect who studied with de Wailly. He designed the vast circular Hôpital Ste-Anne, Paris (1788), heavily influenced by Durand's theories, but never completed, and the huge portico to the Palais Bourbon, now the Chambre des Députés, Paris (1804–8). He was involved in the important urban-design schemes around the rebuilt and modified Fontaine des Innocents, Paris, in the 1790s, and also in the proposals for the Rue des Colonnes, eventually built to designs modified by Vestier (1793–8).
