Abstract [en]

The thesis project the Descendants of Ancestors explores the eccentric and strangely figurative qualities of Claude Nicolas Ledoux’s (1736-1806) architectural oeuvre. 

The project focuses on Ledoux’s engravings and through careful reading (and deliberate mis-reading), transforms them into architectural characters. I regard these characters as Descendants of Ledoux, belonging to the same bloodline but unmistakably shaped by their conception in contemporary times.

Abstract [sv]

Examensprojektet “the Descendants of Ancestors” undersöker de excentriska och figurala kvaliteterna i arkitekten Claude Nicolas Ledoux (1736-1806) verk.

Projektet fokuserar på Ledoux gravyrer och översätter dem genom en noggrann läsning till arkitektoniska karaktärer. Jag ser dessa karaktärer som ättlingar till Ledoux, tillhörande samma släktträd men otvetydigt formade av deras tillkomst i samtiden
