Architecture + Design: Jean Prouvé: A Testimony to Ingenuity by Alice Rawsthorn: “..a long, skinny single-story building made mostly from prefabricated components foraged from the factory. Some parts were originally intended for emergency housing, and others were left over from the construction of a school. His children pitched in by helping him to haul the components up the hill in an ancient Jeep and to assemble them, finishing the house in 1954..”  The incomparable design critic Alice Rawsthorn has written a very good, short, clear article looking at the work of the French designer and architect Jean Prouvé, and at the current, and forthcoming, exhibitions “Tribute to Jean Prouvé” in Nancy, France and elsewhere..”
