GALERIE PATRICK SEGUIN

Jean Prouvé: Maison Démontable 6x6 Demountable House


Featured image is reproduced from <I>Jean Prouvé: Maison Démontable 6x6 Demountable House</I>.Though lacking any formal education in architecture, Jean Prouvé (1901-1984) became one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century, boldly experimenting with new building designs, materials and methods. Prouvé was raised in an environment of artistic, socially motivated innovation: his father belonged to "l'École de Nancy," a collective that sought to unite art, industry and social awareness. He continued this practice throughout his adulthood, opening the Ateliers Jean Prouvé to manufacture standardized, economical goods on a mass scale--which, during World War II, included creating portable and demountable barracks. After the war, the French government commissioned Prouvé to design inexpensive, effective housing for the newly homeless, prompting him to perfect his patented axial portal frame to build easily constructed demountable houses. Despite their advantages, though, few of these architectural triumphs were built, and even fewer survive. In order to preserve Prouvé's architectural and engineering legacy, the Galerie Patrick Seguin has worked tirelessly to promote Prouvé's "constructional philosophy," exhibiting his designs and showcasing his ecologically responsible methodologies. Jean Prouvé: Maison Démontable 6x6 Demountable House, the first of nine monographs published by the Galerie Patrick Seguin on Prouvé's housing modules, highlights the simplest of these modules. Introduced by Catherine Coley, renowned art and architectural historian, it contains Prouvé's sketches, black-and-white photographs of the designer at work and detailed examples of the building process.
