      As much a visionary architect as peers Claude-Nicolas Ledoux and Étienne-Louis Boullée, Jean-Jacques Lequeu’s genius is a surrealist survey of his world. The draftsman, architect, and artist is the cheekiest of the bunch who expands ‘visionary architecture’ to fantasies in life. French Visionary Architecture: Ledoux. Image Dump.

      Jean-Jacques Lequeu does in fact hide behind the most enigmatic and controversial smile in the history of art, writes Philippe Duboy in a book that is one of the most tantalizing examples of architectural investigation ever produced/5(1). I you look hard at some of the leading styles of architecture and design of the periods, you will see elements of the work of the great visionary architect, Jean-Jacques Lequeu, The Rouen-born and Paris-educated Lequeu's major problem in this is that he was long dead in some forgotten place before any of this very-late recognition.

      This trio was further consolidated in an important exhibition in Houston in supported by the Menil Foundation titled Visionary Architects: Boullée, Ledoux, Lequeu. Visionary architecture is the name given to architecture which exists only on paper or which has visionary qualities. Étienne-Louis Boullée, Claude Nicolas Ledoux and Jean-Jacques Lequeu are one of the earliest examples of the discipline.
