JEAN PROUVE: ARCHITECT FOR BETTER DAYS libro de 240 paginas, escrito en español que trata sobre Arte, escritas por el escritor JEAN PROUVE , 2017 financiado por la editoral PHAIDON PRESS LIMITED
Prouvé has been a great influence on me and a pioneer in linking the construction process with the language of modern architecture.
This fascinating book, which accompanies a major retrospective of the LUMA Foundation in Arles, focuses on twelve prefabricated houses designed by Prouvé, each of which has been specially reconstructed for the exhibition.
Initially trained as a metalworker, Jean Prouvé considered himself more of an engineer and builder than a designer or architect.
Among its extensive production, ranging from lighting to furniture, from exhibition structures to shelves, its modular buildings are particularly fascinating.
The essays that contextualize his work are accompanied by archive and contemporary images, drawings and handwritten notes, along with a portfolio of images of the twelve houses installed in Arles.
Jean Prouvé was a French metal worker, self-taught architect and designer, now considered one of the most influential designers of the first modernist movement.
Among his achievements, he is revered for the use of technology previously limited to industrial manufacturing within his elegant architecture.
