English translation:He designed ...
Explanation:
He designed Bizet's tomb in the Pere Lachaise cemetery as well as Offenbach's.

Note: although the French uses a present tense verb, this should probably be put in the past tense in English. French often uses the present to give a more "immediate" linguistic effect, but this generally does not work well in English.
