The ‘Six-Shell’ Bubble — Jean Maneval 

Architect, urban designer and theorist, Jean Maneval developed in 1964 a dwelling unit made entirely of synthetic materials. Produced industrially and commercialized in series in 1968, it was part of the program to equip an experimental vacation center in the Pyrenean Mountains. Each living unit (6 shells) was easily transported by truck. The prefabricated shells were made of reinforced polyester insulated with polyurethane foam in three colour-versions: white, green, and brown. The bubble blended ‘perfectly’ into the landscape. Production ended in 1970 and only about 30 were ever made.
