Jacques Jean-Pierre Lucan

Biography

Graduated in architecture in Paris in 1972, Jacques Lucan was Editor-in-Chief of the journal Architecture-Mouvement-Continuité (AMC) from 1978 to 1988. Appointed to the School of Architecture in Paris-Belleville in 1981, his teaching activities covered three areas: the history of the theories of architectural composition, the relationships between 20th century urban theories and doctrines and the transformations taking place in towns and cities, and the architectural project. His research work has led to a number of publications on critics, history and theory of architecture in numerous international journals and to contributions to monographs on contemporary architects. He is the author of several books.

Since 1993, Lucan took part in town planning competitions, projected four blocks of flats and a library in Paris and carried out urban planning projects on the Ile d’Yeu. In October 1997 he was appointed to the post of Professor of the theory of architecture (60%) at the EPFL’s Department of Architecture. Here Lucan’s research work concentrated on the necessary conditions which lead to theoretical terms in architecture and on the history of the theories of composition. His teaching is closely linked to the architectural project.

Since 2001, he is the head of the Theory and History of Architecture Laboratory 1. From 2006 to 2008, he directed the Doctoral Programme “Architecture, City, History” of ENAC.
