Jean-Nicolas-Louis Durand
Jean-Nicolas-Louis Durand (Paris, September 18, 1760 Thiais, December 31, 1834) was a French author, teacher and architect. He was an important figure in Neoclassicism, and his system of design using simple modular elements anticipated modern industrialized building components. Having spent periods working for the architect tienne-Louis Boulle and the civil engineer Jean-Rodolphe Perronet, in 1795 he became a Professor of Architecture at the cole Polytechnique.
