Jean-Jacques Lequeu (Rouen, September 14, 1757 – ? c. 1825) was a French architect. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Jacques_Lequeu [Jan 2006]

Jean-Jacques Lequeu’s name has come to be linked with those of Étienne-Louis Boullée and Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, at least since the publication of Emil Kaufmann’s 1933 book Von Ledoux bis Le Corbusier. The three were all architectural visionaries, who sketched fanciful and often extravagantly unconstructable buildings, and all were active at the advent of the French revolution. Unlike his two contemporaries, however, Lequeu (1757-1825) never belonged to the architectural establishment. He worked as a draughtsman at Rouen, and later, from 1779, in Paris, variously at the Cadastre (Land Registry), the Ecole Polytechnique, and the Interior Ministry. --http://www.spamula.net/blog/archives/000575.html [Jun 2005]
