I really need to go out tonight.

For one, I can only stay in this house for so long and be bored. For two, as I said, I’m bored. Disney movies and tearjerkers are cool and all but fun times need to exist. Lastly, my boyfriend is apparently busy today and he won’t be available until later on. Which makes me super sad because of .. reasons.

Some of the less famous works by Jean-Jacques Lequeu, a prolific French architectural designer from the late 18th/early 19th centuries with a particular flair for the imaginative and visionary.

There are more than 1000 Lequeu images available at the BnF. Be warned, Lequeu also had a penchant for sketching genitals (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

Pruned has a great post from 9 years ago featuring some of Lequeu’s more memorable (unrealised) architectural designs, together with an overview of the fellow’s extraordinary biography.
