O knjizi:

Utilitarian simplicity, graceful beautyFrench architect and designer Jean Prouvé (1901-1984) was one of the most important constructors of the 20th century. Prouvé’s design innovations included cleverly-shaped metal parts for building prefabricated structures; he designed buildings and furniture that could be produced with economy of labor and material and efficiency in use, while maintaining high technical standards and quality materials. His simple and elegant style, while born from the desire for inexpensive production, has become an imitable aesthetic and has earned him a position as one of the century`s most influential designers.This introduction to Prouvé`s work gives a profound insight into the variety of his oeuvre and the progressiveness of his inspirational vision.About the Series: Every book in TASCHEN’s Basic Architecture Series features:approximately 120 images, including photographs, sketches, drawings, and floor plansintroductory essays exploring the architect’s life and work, touching on family and background as well as collaborations with other architectsthe most important works presented in chronological order, with descriptions of client and/or architect wishes as well as construction problems and resolutionsan appendix including a list of complete or selected works, biography, bibliography and a map indicating the locations of the architect’s most famous buildingsAbout the author: Nils Peters studied art history at the University of Hamburg, architecture at TFH Berlin, and urban sociology at Columbia University in New York.
