Description

Galerie Patrick Seguin

Continuing his research into demountable houses, in 1938 Jean Prouvé came up with the structural principle of the axial portal frame, which he patented the following year. He decided to apply it to a module 8 meters (26.2 ft) wide to adapt the construction methods to family housing in an area of 64 square meters (689 square feet) per module. The load-bearing structure that included improvements to provide greater comfort was made entirely of bent sheet steel.
