Watch an Off-The-Grid Jean Prouvé Prefab Get Built in No Time

Part of the mystique of modern prefab homes is the basic premise that they can be assembled rather easily. This idea is on full display in this newly released time-lapse footage of a revamped Jean Prouvé 6 x 6 Demountable House getting built from start to finish.

This is the structure that British architecture firm Rogers Stirk Habour + Partners recently redesigned at the invitation of Prouvé collector Patrick Seguin, who has some 20 more of them stored in a French warehouse. The finished work, now appended with two cylindrical modules for a kitchen and bathroom and mobile trolleys supporting solar power generation and hot water systems, was shown at the Design Miami/Basel show in Switzerland last week.
