Jean Prouvé

Winner of a 1949 Ministry of Education competition for a “mass-producible rural school with classroom and teacher accommodation”, the Ateliers Jean Prouvé built the Maison Aluminium Métropole as a teacher’s accommodation. Like the school, the accommodation followed the portico principle patented by Prouvé in 1939. The Metropole Aluminium House (architect Henri Prouvé) had been finalized in 1948. The video shows the rebuilding of the original design.
