Accompanying its exhibitions, Galerie Patrick Seguin has also developed an editorial line of comprehensive publications and is currently releasing a set of 5 monographs dedicated to Jean Prouvé’s demountable architecture, illustrated with archival and contemporary photographs.
These 5 volumes are the first of 15 that will be released in 3 separate boxed sets over the course of 2015 and 2016.
Ferembal Demountable House – The Ateliers Jean Prouvé built the structure housing the Ferembal offices in Nancy in 1948. Only a few of prototypes were ever made. Rescued from the demolition of the Ferembal site in 1983, this striking example is another eloquent illustration of the approach’s technical and functional virtues as well as its adaptability.
At the request of the Galerie Patrick Seguin, in 2010, architect Jean Nouvel undertook a thoroughgoing «adaptation» of the Prouvé building, demonstrating the enduring relevance of the method.
