His distinctive plans and production consist largely of houses, small offices, schools and modest government buildings, and their mystery lies in their sameness, the determination with which Bedaux has investigated, tested and perfected a few themes in all their variations. By consistently--sometimes even stoically--holding to particular shapes and ideas, he conveys the power of sophisticated variations on a worthy theme. And he has built an oeuvre that runs counter to the zeitgeist, as Bedaux deploys work permeated with architectural conventions against one of the most important conventions of todays culture, which is the ambition to be original.
