“On Quai Alexandre-III Jean Prouvé has built the handsomest house I know of: the most perfect object for living in, the most sparkling thing ever constructed. It’s all the real, built outcome of a lifetime of research. And it was commissioned from Prouvé by Abbé Pierre!”. Le Corbusier, 29 February 1956. © Fonds Jean Prouvé.
