“La Station Prouvé”

Jean Prouvé (1901-1984) is considered as one of the greatest inventors of the architectural structures of the 20th century. His creations rank with the most significant accounts of the modern times. At the end of the 1960’s, Total, the multinational company, called upon him to think out a new brand image : he developed the prototype of a petrolstation which was conceived to be moved according to the variations in the road traffic.
