Claude Nicolas Ledoux
b. 3-21-1736; Dormans-sur-Marne, France
d. 11-18-1806; Paris

Architect Claude Nicolas Ledoux designed the theatre of Besacon, an innovation at the time as the first to have a ground floor amphitheatre furnished with seats for the ordinary paying public, and a screen to hide the orchestra.

Ledoux is also noted for his proposed ideal city for the Royal Saltworks at Arc-et-Senans, or Salines de Chaux. In addition to the city being built near the forest that would supply the fuel for the drying pans of saline water that flowed to the works by canal, the shape of the buildings would explain their identify and function, i.e. the hoop makers houses were shaped as barrels. His work was considered utopian.

Pierre Charles L'Enfant
b. 8-9-1754; Anet, France
d. 6-14-1825; US, buried in Maryland

In 1791 George Washington appointed architect and civil engineer Pierre Charles L'Enfant to design the new capital city for the fledgling United States.

L'Enfant's plan specified that most streets would be laid out in a grid in an east-west direction and north-south direction. Diagonal avenues, later named after the states of the union crossed the grid. Circles and rectangular plazas that would later honor notable Americans and provide open space were designed for where diagonal avenues intersected with the north-south and east-west streets.

FYI - L'Enfant had come to the American colonies in 1777, serving with Major General Lafayette and on the staff of George Washington, during the Revolutionary War.

b. 10-5-1959; Athens, OH

Other Lin works include the Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama, and “The Wave Field” on the campus of the University of Michigan.

Adolf Loos
b. 12-10-1870; Moravia
d. 8-23-1933; Vienna

Aldof Loos was one of the most influential architects and writer/critics of Modern architecture. In his essay “Ornament and Crime” he repudiated the florid style of the Vienna Secession, the Austrian version of Art Nouveau. In this, and many other essays, he contributed to the elaboration of a body of theory and criticism of Modernism in architecture.
