Ludger Lemieux (1872 - 1953) was a Québécois architect who designed a number of notable Art deco structures in Montreal's Saint-Henri district.[1] While he often worked in partnership with Joseph-Honoré MacDuff, his best-known structure, the Atwater Market, was designed not with MacDuff but with Paul Lemieux, reported to be either his son[2] or brother.[3]

Ludger Lemieux's other buildings include the Tooke Brothers factory, the Workman Building, the Sainte Irénée Church next to Atwater Market, and the Saint-Henri Fire Station.[2][4]

He was born in Farnham, Quebec and studied at McGill University.[2]

Collaborations[edit]

Along with his collaboration with Paul Lemieux, Ludger collaborated on the église Saint-Zotique with René Charbonneau, architect of the Outremont Theatre. With Joseph-Honoré MacDuff, he designed the église Saint-Zotique, église Saint-Irénée, école Sainte-Jeanne-de-Chantal and Tooke Brothers building.[3]
