JACOT Pavel Petrovich (1798-1860), architect and builder, representative of the late Neoclassicism. Native of France, he studied at the School of Fine Arts in Paris (1812-21) under the supervision of Debreu and L.I. Leba. In 1822 he came to St. Petersburg. In 1823-38, he taught as a professor of architecture at the Engineering Corps Institute for Transport Communications. In 1823-33, he worked under the supervision of K. I. Rossi, having accomplished a number of projects, including the reconstruction of the Senate and Synod buildings. His first independent work was the English Circus near Simeonovsky Bridge (1827-28). He rebuilt the house for V. V. Engelgardt in 1829 (30 Nevsky Prospect; currently, the Minor Hall of the Philharmonic Society), which became one of musical and theatrical centres of the capital; under the projects of Rossi he erected the building of the Noble Assembly with white columnar hall in the Empire style in 1834-39 (9 Italyanskaya Street; currently it houses the Grand hall of the Philharmonic Society). His best work is the Dutch Church (1831-37). For himself, Jacot built a number of apartment houses; the most interesting of them all is at 11/6 Bolshaya Morskaya Street (1837-38). After 1840, he returned to France, but did not break ties with Russia, for example, drawing up the designs for a cathedral in Warsaw.
