Description

Galerie Patrick Seguin

In response to an order from the state at the end of the War, Jean Prouvé began designing temporary houses for the homeless in Lorraine and Franche-Comté in eastern France. Fine-tuning his already patented axial portal frame, he saw a quick, economical and adaptable solution as an urgent priority, in a 6×6 meter module. The components were shipped directly to bomb-devastated villages, where they could be assembled on site in a day by two people.
