Jean Prouvé is one of the world’s most renowned architects and a new book from Phaidon takes a deeper look at his legacy. JEAN PROUVÉ: Architect of the best days is a collaborative effort with the LUMA foundation and goes deep into the work of Prouvé, mixing essays about his work alongside archival imagery of his greatest works.
The French architect was also a trained ironworker, seeing himself as more of an engineer and builder instead of a designer. His modular buildings are shown thoroughly in this 240-page book, which is now available from Phaidon’s online store. And if you’re not yet familiar with the architect’s, a home that shows off Prouvé’s influence is this Buildsense-created space in North Carolina.
