In 1949, the Ateliers Jean Prouvé took part in a Ministry of Education competition, designing a single-classroom, mass-producible rural school, with teacher accommodation. In 1950 the State commissioned him to produce two school+accomodation prototypes; one of these was assembled in Bouqueval, outside Paris, and the other at Vantoux, near Metz. Despite the success of the demonstration, these two schools were to be the only examples of the substantial series so much hoped for by Jean Prouvé.
