Jean Prouvé 6×6 Demountable House, 1944, Vol. 1 Book $35>
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.
