Ledoux – the Architect
Claude Nicholas Ledoux
Born in Dormans-sur-Marne, France; died in Paris, France
Ledoux buildings are characterised by a strongly articulated Mannerist style, using the Classical Style with a similar flexibility to Piranesi and Boullee.
Unlike earlier Italian Mannerist buildings his work is simpler and bolder with Classical columns using repetitive square sections being a recurring motif.
Paris Building by Claude Ledoux
The newly renovated Rotonde de la Villette.
Designed by Claude Ledoux as a tollhouse in the 1780s, the Rotonde is considered by many as a precursor of modern architecture.
It was restored in 2010 and now houses a café-restaurant, thus allowing the public into the building.
