Jean-Jacques Lequeu (1757-1825) worked as a draughtsman at Rouen, and
from 1779 in Paris at the Cadastre, the Ecole Polytechnique, and the
Interior Ministry. He created two treatises: Architecture Civile and
Nouvelle Méthode Appliquée aux Principes Élémentaires du Dessin, both
donated to the Bibliothèque Royale (now Nationale) in July 1825. Lequeu
submitted his work for exhibition in the Salons, but was always
rejected. He later tried to sell his work by way of advertisements in
Paris journals, but also these efforts were largely unsuccessful.
Despite the lack of acceptance among his contemporaries, Lequeu is today
considered an exceptional architectural visionary of post-revolutionary
France together with Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, Étienne-Louis Boullée and
Antoine Laurent Thomas Vaudoyer.
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.
