Designer Home. Maison Tropicale, Jean Prouvé's experiment in prefabricated housing is in Queens! From Africa to Queens Waterfront, a Modernist Gem for Sale to the Highest Bidder in the New York Times looks at the recent history of the design classic and its journey to its temporary home in Queens. Awaiting its early June auction date, the home's expected to earn $4-$6 million to help finance a Jean Prouvé museum...

Don't miss the slideshow which includes great photos of Maison Tropicale with the Queensborough Bridge in the background. The lot information at Christie's — is also full of pictures and information.
