Jean Prouvé and Pierre Jeanneret’s BCC Demountable House fits in the series of projects initiated in 1939 and centered on the construction principle of the axial portal frame, created by Prouvé in 1938. Only a few examples of this small building, made entirely of wood, were completed between 1941 and 1943 during extreme wartime conditions. Prouvé and Jeanneret were challenged to come up with a solution to the lack of steel due to the war, and the use of wood allowed for the creation of quality homes that were temporary and comfortable.
