Jean Prouv#65533; (1901-1984) is widely recognised as one of the most extraordinary engineers of the twentieth century. His constructions and inventions in the fields of industrial manufacturing, prefabrication, and the use of new materials like aluminum and corrugated iron as well as his design sketches are an abiding and significant influence on many architects and engineers today. The fourth volume of the complete works deals with Prouv#65533;'s creative period from 1954 to 1984, covering 200 projects, including such major works as the Alpexpo exhibition halls in Grenoble, gas stations for Total, the pump room in Evian, curtain walls - for example for the Freie Universit#65533;t (Free University) in Berlin and the Medical School of Erasmus University in Rotterdam - and his final work, the radar tower in Ouessant. From 1957 to 1970 Prouv#65533; was also professor at the Conservatoire National des Arts et M#65533;tiers in Paris.
