Economic, elegant and functional: Jean Prouvé

Reproduced from Galerie Patrick Seguin's magnificent new slipcased, two-volume Jean Prouvé overview, this contemporary photograph captures a sub-section of the architect/designer's groundbreaking 1957 Villejuif temporary school as installed in Le Muy, Var, in 2015. "Economic but elegant and functional at the same time, the 'temporary' school in Villejuif is in fact a masterly demonstration of mass-production of permanent structures. Even if government departments failed to follow up on these ideas, the later recycling of Villejuif components and the presence of a grid bay from the school in major national museums have ensured the project a place in the history of 20th-century architecture."
