Jean Prouvé’s Tropical House in London

The Design Museum, in partnership with Tate Modern, brings a house designed by architectural visionary Jean Prouvé to Britain for the first time. The prototype house, designed by the French architect Jean Prouvé (1901-1984), for 1950s colonial West Africa, has been erected outside Tate Modern as an extension of the Design Museum’s current exhibition Jean Prouvé ‘The Poetics of the Technical Object’. Fashion photographer Ben Rayner has taken many pictures of the reconstruction of the modular pre-fabricated house.
