Description

Galerie Patrick Seguin

At the end of the War, the Ministry of Reconstruction commissioned Jean Prouvé to design moveable pavilions as temporary housing for those who had lost their homes in eastern France. Fine-tuning his already patented axial portal frame system, he replied to the urgency of the situation with a quick, economical and flexible solution. “We need to run a race against time”. This temporary solution also provided him with a chance to try out an industrial process that could be made more permanent.
