Since opening in 1989, Galerie Patrick Seguin has been building a collection of Jean Prouvé demountable houses that is today the largest in the world. With 19 of these structures ranging from 172 to 2054 sq. ft., the gallery has worked strenuously to promote Jean Prouvé’s architecture through numerous exhibitions and fairs throughout the world, including at MoMA in New York, Design Miami/ Basel, the Venice Biennale, and the Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli in Turin.
Accompanying its exhibitions, Galerie Patrick Seguin has also developed an editorial line of comprehensive publications and has released multiple sets of monographs dedicated to Jean Prouvé’s demountable architecture, all illustrated with archival and contemporary photographs. This volume no. 10 focuses on the Villejuif Temporary school.
