Charles Chipiez (1835–1901) was an influential French architect, Egyptologist, Iranologist, and an avid historian of the ancient world's architecture.[1][2] He was a teacher at École Spéciale d'Architecture in Paris, France and helped build the "École Nationale Professionnelle d'Armentières" or the National Professional building of Armentières in 1887.

Chipiez with the help of architect, hellenist, and architectural historian Georges Perrot wrote some of the most detailed description of the architectural achievements of the ancient world in such places as Egypt, Greece, Persia, Lydia, Lycia and Assyria. Chipiez would also create some of the most detailed virtual architectural drawings of the ancient monuments that once stood erect, bringing them to life.

Some of his prominent works with Perrot include History of art in primitive Greece: Mycenian art[3] in 1894, A history of art in Phoenicia and its dependencies[4] in 1885, History of art in Persia[5] in 1892, A history of art in ancient Egypt[6] in 1883, A history of art in Chaldaea & Assyria[7] in 1884, History of art in Phrygia, Lydia, Caria, and Lycia[8] in 1892, and History of art in Sardinia, Judæa, Syria, and Asia Minor[9] in 1890.

Chipiez's drawing reflect his technical acumen as well as his artist abilities. His drawings recreating the facade of Persepolis are among some of the works he has contributed to his publications:
