The details

Victor Louis (10 May 1731, Paris – 2 July 1800, Paris) was a French architect, disqualified on a technicality from winning the Prix de Rome in architecture in 1755.
Louis' masterpiece is the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux of 1780. He also designed other theatres, including the theatre of the Comédie-Française on the rue de Richelieu (1790) and the Théâtre National de la rue de la Loi (1793, demolished). Other buildings include the Intendance in Besançon (completed 1776), the garden galleries of the Palais-Royal in Paris (1781–1784), and the Château du Bouilh near Bordeaux (1786-1789, unfinished). A full biography by Charles Marionneau was published in Bordeaux in 1881. In 1770 he married the pianist and composer Marie-Emmanuelle Bayon.
