Sunday Morning Modern

Jean Prouve | The Pioneer of Prefabrication 

7681c6ffd91eef24eb4f0b6b6ea515f1Jean Prouvé’s house in Nancy is a simple structure that the architect (1901 – 1984) built for his family. A self-taught engineer and architect — nicknamed “the archetypal builder” by Le Corbusier — Prouvé was constantly attracted to innovative materials. It was his fascination with cars, planes and rockets that pushed Prouvé to manufacture houses in such a technical and rational way, as one would for industrial products. In his designs, the economy of space, work and materials is continuously maximized to find quick and affordable shelter and housing solutions.maxresdefault

Enter the George Matsumoto Prize Competition Today!

MatsuHello Architects, Designers and Home Owners! There are only six days left to submit an entry for the annual George Matsumoto Prize — our partners at NC Modernist Houses architectural design awards. We have had several WNC winners in the past few years.

The Matsumoto Prize provides motivating honors and incentives for a new generation of architects; contributes to wider public recognition of Modernism in all its forms (architecture, art, furniture, and fashion); and recognizes the significant economic and aesthetic impact of Modernist design across North Carolina.21 St Charles Pl Asheville NC-small-001-Front-666x445-72dpi

The Matsumoto Prize is the only juried architecture competition in North Carolina that focuses exclusively on Modernist houses, provides financial awards, involves a national jury plus public voting, and connects to a major architectural archive. The Prize meaningfully and powerfully engages the public with the architecture they love and showcases exceptional Modernist architects and designers in North Carolina.

For more information go here. Cheers!
