Jean Prouve Maison Demontable 6x6 Demountable House

EPUB EBook by Jean Prouve

EBook Description

Though lacking any formal education in architecture, Jean Prouve (1901- EPUB1984) became one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century, boldly experimenting with new building designs, materials and methods. Jean Prouve Maison Demontable 6x6 Demountable House EPUB EBook Prouve was raised in an environment of artistic, socially motivated innovation: his father belonged to "l'Ecole de Nancy," a collective that sought to unite art, industry and social awareness. He continued this practice throughout his adulthood, opening the Ateliers Jean Prouve to manufacture standardized, economical goods on a mass scale—which, during World War II, included creating portable and demountable barracks. After the war, the French government commissioned Prouve to design inexpensive, effective housing for the newly homeless, prompting him to perfect his patented axial portal frame to build easily constructed demountable houses. Despite their advantages, though, few of these architectural triumphs were built, and even fewer survive. In order to preserve Prouve's architectural and engineering legacy, the Galerie Patrick Seguin has worked tirelessly to promote Prouve's "constructional philosophy," exhibiting his designs and showcasing his ecologically responsible methodologies. "Jean Prouve Maison Demontable 6x6 Demountable House," the first of nine monographs published by the Galerie Patrick Seguin on Prouve's housing modules, highlights the simplest of these modules. Introduced by Catherine Coley, renowned art and architectural historian, it contains Prouve's sketches, black-and-white photographs of the designer at work and detailed examples of the building process.
