Along with the Revolutionary Calendar pieces, Fabrice Gilod highlights Claude Nicolas Ledoux's work, which was influenced by Jean-Jacques Rousseau's thinking. Ledoux elaborated a totally innovative architectural world; he was an idealist whose work foreshadowed the social housing from the 19th century.
Even though he did not take part in the Revolution, his utopian and social architecture was, on many levels, revolutionary.
Despite being Louis XV and Louis XVI's architect, he wanted to built for the farmers and his frame of mind was close to Fabre d'Eglantine's Révolutionary Calendar, dedicated to the agricultural world, nature and tools.
The metallic net sculptures created by Fabrice Gilod and displayed in Marie-Robin Gallery play with Ledoux's style and aesthetic. Furthermore, Marie-Robin Gallery is located on 18 rue de Montmorency, in front of number 17, where the Hôtel d'Hallwyl, the last example of Ledoux's private architecture in Paris, can be found.
Fabrice Gilod met en valeur le travail du grand architecte Claude-Nicolas Ledoux qui fut, au siècle des lumières, influencé par les idées rousseauistes et élabora une oeuvre architecturale totalement novatrice et fut un idéaliste dont les œuvres préfigurèrent le familistère et l'habitat social du XIX siècle.
