Pierre Chambiges, (died 19 June 1544[1]), was a French master mason (maître des œuvres de maçonnerie et pavement de la Ville de Paris) and architect to François I of France and his son Henri II.

As surveyor and architect, Chambiges was involved in numerous royal and official projects:

For Anne de Montmorency he designed and built the Château de Chantilly.

The son of mason Martin Chambiges (c.1465–1532), whose west front of the cathedral of Troyes, begun in 1507 occupied him for several decades,[2] he died in Paris.
