Summary

The book sheds light on the origin of the house designed by Jean Prouvé in the 1950s, a groundbreaking creation that could be dismantled and was designed to adapt to climatic constraints.

Description

The perfect incarnation of the Manifesto by Ron Arad: "let's be honnest, we need manufactured homes".

Why manufactured? Because houses are no longer built with several bits and pieces that are then put together, but are now made of elements characterizing a machine that is completely assembled mechanically and which doesn't require to create any other material on the construction site.

Through a lecture given in Nancy at the end of the war, Jean Prouvé urges architects, technicians and politicians in charge of the reconstruction to priviledge manufactured houses.
