Ludger Lemieux (1872–1953) was a Quebec 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]

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

Collaborations[edit]

Along with his collaboration with Joseph-Honoré MacDuff, Lemieux's other buildings include the Tooke Brothers factory, the Workman Building, the Sainte-Irénée church next to Atwater Market, the Sainte-Jeanne-de-Chantal school and the Saint-Henri Fire Station.[2][4] [3] Along with his collaboration with Paul Lemieux, Lemieux collaborated on the Saint-Zotique church with René Charbonneau, the architect of the Outremont Theatre.
