French architect. He was educated at the Collège de Beauvais and at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris, where he studied (c. 1760) under Jacques-François Blondel and Etienne-Louis Boullée. He never won the Prix de Rome, however, nor did he study in Italy, but in the 1770s he became one of the most fashionable architects of town houses (hôtels particuliers) in Paris, particularly in the northern part of the Chaussée d’Antin quarter
