Item description for Claude-Nicolas Ledoux: Architecture and Utopia in the Era of the French Revolution by Claude Nicolas Ledoux...

Claude-Nicolas Ledoux (1736--1806) is the "boldest and most extreme" (Nikolaus Pevsner) French revolutionary architect. Since the 1930s, when he was rediscovered by Emil Kaufmann in the famous study "From Ledoux to Le Corbusier," his visionary but widely realized buildings have served as a source of inspiration for unusual designs. His famous tollgates are familiar to every cultured traveler to Paris, and the TV film on the Royal Saltworks of Arc-et-Senans has also brought fresh proof of his popular appeal.

Reviews - What do customers think about Claude-Nicolas Ledoux: Architecture and Utopia in the Era of the French Revolution?

Claude-NIcholas Ledoux by Anthony Vidler  Sep 24, 2007
An excellant account of Ledoux's work and life, beautifully designed and well illustrated.
I can only quote from Elain Harwood's review in the Architects Journal of 17th August 2007:
"Superficially a coffee-table glossy, this book has real depth. It explores both the physical and intellectual world of Ledoux's times- however, the man himself remains a shadow."
Louis Hellman Architectural cartoonist
