Maison des Jours Meilluers, Jean Prouvé, 1956. Aluminum & wood, 9 x 6.5 x 3m. Galerie Patrick Seguin 

“Emblematic of Jean Prouvé’s implementation of constructive thinking, the Maison des Jours Meilleurs is above all a true manifesto for the industrialisation of the construction process and the possibility of housing for all. Tour de force in both its technicality (mountable in a few hours), but also in what it continues to represent symbolically: a solution for emergency housing which remains one of today’s true topical concerns. Praised by Le Corbusier in the winter of 1956, and thereby the image of art as an experience but also as a means to raise awareness.”
