Étienne-Hippolyte Godde (26 December 1781 – 1869) was a French neoclassic architect.

Born in Breteuil, Oise,[1] educated at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, and Architect of the City of Paris from 1813 to 1830, Godde designed some thirty religious buildings, six public buildings, and numerous other structures. Among his apprentices was Henri Labrouste. In poverty later in life, he was buried in the 27th division of Père Lachaise Cemetery.
