Hello readers! We are a group of first year students from the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. Over the term, we have been documenting our research in this blog on a case study of Jean Prouvé's iconic, prefabricated house, Maison Tropicale, for our Introduction to Architecture (Arch 100) and Visual Communications (Arch 110) classes. 

Please refer to the pages above to explore the story of Maison Tropicale.
