Vaudremer, Joseph-Auguste-Émile (1829–1914). French architect. He trained in the Blouet-Gilbert atelier, worked with Baltard and Duban, and was appointed Architect to the XIII and XIV Arondissements of Paris. He designed the Santé Gaol, Paris (1862–85), in the rational manner of Blouet, but his masterpiece is the powerful freely treated Romanesque Revival Church of St-Pierre-de-Montrouge, Place Victor Basch, Paris (1864–72), a building of great presence and dignity that may have influenced H. H. Richardson. He also designed Notre-Dame d'Auteuil, Place d'Auteuil, Paris (1876–80), with stone vaults possibly inspired by work of Abadie. His St-Antoine-des-Quinze-Vingts, Avenue Ledru-Rollin, Paris (1901–3), is an interesting asymmetrical composition of some originality.
