JEAN PROUVÉ 6X6 HOUSE – ADAPTATION RICHARD ROGERS (RSHP) – SET-UP

From June 15-21, on the occasion of Design Miami/ Basel 2015, Galerie Patrick Seguin is pleased to present an adaptation of Jean Prouvé’s 6×6 Demountable House by by award-winning British architecture practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP).
The 6×6 Demountable House was originally designed by Jean Prouvé in 1944 to rehouse war victims in Lorraine, France. Built entirely from wood and metal, the houses were easily transported and quickly assembled.
The adaption of Prouvé’s 6×6 Demountable House led by RSHP’s Ivan Harbour is based on the original plans with the addition of modern living facilities including a satellite bathroom and kitchen as well as a series of service trolleys providing hot water and solar powered electricity. In doing so, RSHP was able to preserve the integrity of the original as a single living space.

DESIGN MIAMI/BASEL 2015 – JEAN PROUVÉ 6X6 HOUSE ADAPTATION RICHARD ROGERS (RSHP)

The adaptation of Jean Prouvé’s 6×6 Demountable House by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners is based on the original plans with the addition of modern living facilities including external bathroom and kitchen pods as well as a series of service trolleys providing hot water and solar-powered electricity. Placing the pods on the outside maintains the flexibility of the original internal layout, and the trolleys ensure the house has an independent supply of water and energy so it can be built in any environment. RSHP’s design replaces six of the original wooden panels to provide a link bridge connection to each pod and an entrance of four glazed panels that bring light into the main living space and open onto a new external decking platform. The decking is controlled through a counter balance system so it can be lowered for use as an outdoor space or raised to act as a shutter to protect the glazing against extreme weather conditions. In keeping with the original design, all components can be manually assembled and dismantled easily on site, and different panel locations can be configured to suit specific locations. The RSHP adaptation was designed to be showcased at DesignMiami/ Basel 2015 before transferring to an outdoor setting. As well as a new holiday retreat, it has potential to become a blueprint for future transportable and demountable refugee housing in keeping with Prouvé’s original vision.

Expo Milano 2015 is the Universal Exhibition that Milan, Italy, will host from May 1 to October 31, 2015.
As a part of Expo Milano 2015 the exhibition Arts & Foods curated by Germano Celant presented at the Triennale of Milan from April 9 to the end of October 2015, retraces and analyses the intricate relationship between the arts and foods from 1851 – the date of the first Expo in London, through the present days.
Following the chronological order of the exhibition, the Maison des Jours Meilleurs designed by Jean Prouvé in 1956, with the kitchen implanted at the heart of it, perfectly illustrates the after war ideals of the reconstruction and the architecture conceived for the unfortunate people.
Presented as a “show house” the Maison des Jours Meilleurs is furnished with Jean Prouvé’s iconic pieces (tables, chairs, arm-chairs and bed) of the Galerie Patrick Seguin.

ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST – MARCH 2015

AD

“Patrick Seguin and Larry Gagosian may have found the closest thing to a match made in exhibition heaven. On Friday, Gagosian’s 24th Street location in Manhattan opened its doors to “Chamberlain / Prouvé” a joint exhibition of American sculptor John Chamberlain and French architect-designer-engineer Jean Prouvé. Executed in collaboration with Paris’s Galerie Patrick Seguin, the show features two fully erected Prouvé prefab houses, numerous Chamberlain sculptures of varying size, and models and parts of additional Prouvé works.”
