Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


In 1933, Emil Kaufmann revealed the figure of Jean-Jacques Lequeu to a wider audience for the first time by publishing, in his Von Ledoux bis Le Corbusier, a number of drawings by the then almost unknown architect from Normandy to support the thesis, still debated today, that sees Claude-Nicolas Ledoux's "revolutionary" architecture as the origin of a natural line of sight which, starting from the purity of neoclassical forms, leads directly to the works of the masters of the modern movement. The afterword analyses Felice Romano's study of the Novelle Méthode.
