Jean Prouvé’s meridienne shelter in the Paris Observatory gardens
I have just begun a new series of sketches and illustrations depicting my surroundings in Paris’ fourteenth arrondissement. To a certain extent, it is a follow-up on what I used to do 10 years ago in London when I was living in Brook Mews North. The latest picture from that series is the one depicting the Meridienne shelter, a building by the famous architect Jean Prouvé (1901-1984), who developed not only new designs but also new ways of producing new buildings.

Do you have any details on the Prouvé Bldg?
Thanks Craig, in fact I don’t. I managed to see it mentioned in a book which I found in a library but that’s all in fact. I would suggest that you look at or buy his complete works http://books.google.com/books?id=xZrhRAAACAAJ&dq=%22jean+prouv%C3%A9+complete+works&hl=en&ei=UvUgTKD3I8_4_Aa1iKX7Dw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CCwQ6AEwAA
Hope it helps
