Galerie Patrick Seguin expands beyond its Parisian flagship for the first time and debuts a London location in the heart of the exclusive Mayfair district.
Located at 45-47 Brook Street, steps from landmark London hotel Claridge’s, the 65 square meter gallery will feature an alternating program of architecture, design and art exhibitions.

“Our prime location in Mayfair engages the Gallery directly with London’s dynamic art scene,” explains gallery founder, Patrick Seguin. “We are excited to showcase the Gallery’s particular genius of putting architecture and design in conversation with contemporary art.”

The inaugural exhibition opens October 11 and features two important architectural works by Mid-century Modern architect and designer Jean Prouvé including: “Temporary School of Villejuif” (1956) and an adaptation of “6×6 Demountable House” (1944) by London-based architecture practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP). The gallery has assembled the most significant collection of Prouvé’s demountable architecture, 20 houses to date, most of which are either unique works or limited examples.


// La galleria Patrick Seguin per la prima volta si espande oltre la sede principale parigina per la prima volta e inaugura la sede londinese nel cuore dell’esclusivo quartiere di Mayfair.
Situato al 45-47 di Brook Street, a pochi passi dallo storico hotel Claridge, la nuova galleria di 65 mq offrirà un programma a rotazione di architettura, design e mostre d’arte.

“La nostra prima sede a Mayfair si innesta direttamente sulla scena artistica dinamica di Londra”, ha spiegato il fondatore della galleria, Patrick Seguin. “Siamo entusiasti di presentare il particolare genio della galleria nel mettere architettura e design in dialogo con l’arte contemporanea.”

L’esposizione inaugurale debutta il prossimo 11 ottobre e presenterà due importanti lavori di architettura dell’architetto e designer moderno Jean Prouvè che includeranno: “Temporary School of of Villejuif” (1956) ed un adattamento della “6×6 Demountable House” (1944) realizzato dallo studio di architettura londinese Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP). La galleria ha raggruppato le architetture smontabili di Prouvè più significative, 20 case fino ad oggi, la maggior parte delle quali sono lavori unici o edizioni limitate.
