Henri Jean Émile Bénard [1844-1929], who trained at the Beaux-Arts, was the winner of The Phoebe Hearst International Architectural Competition with his design for the Berkeley Campus, "Roma." It conjured a city of Parisian buildings organized along a sloping esplanade, and construction was completed soon after.
