Jacques André Fouilhoux (1879–1945) was an engineer and architect from Paris, France who partnered with architects in Salem, Oregon and New York City. He was in the United States ca. 1904.


In Oregon as part of the Whitehouse & Fouilhoux firm with Morris H. Whitehouse, he was involved in designing several projects in Portland, Oregon. These include Anna Lewis Mann Old People's Home[1][2] the second Failing School (now the campus of the National University of Natural Medicine),[3] the University Club,[2][4] Elliott R. Corbett House,[2] H. L. & Gretchen Hoyt Corbett House[2] and the Seven Hundred Five Davis Street Apartments[2][5] He is also credited as a partner in the Conro Fiero House in Central Point, Oregon[6] and the Methodist Church in Astoria.

In New York he worked with Raymond Hood (1881–1934) starting ca. 1923 and worked on projects including the American Radiator Building. He was a partner in the Godley, Fouilhoux, and Barber firm; Hood & Fouilhoux; and the Hood, Godley & Fouilhoux firm.[7][8] Projects he worked on included St. Vincent de Paul Asylum in Tarrytown, New York,[9] the Masonic Temple in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the McGraw-Hill Building in New York City, and Rockefeller Center in New York City. After Hood's death in 1934 Fouilhoux joined Wallace K. Harrison (1895–1981) and "contributed to the New York World's Fair," as well as on the Fort Greene and Clinton Hill housing developments in New York City during the 1940s.[8]

A number of his works, with individual or joint credit, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).[10]
