The Tetrodon (the name of a fish) is a prefab module dwelling designed in the 1960s by AUA (Atelier d’Urbanisme et d’Architecture, France), a modernist group looking to create something different in the world of domestic dwellings and in order to face housing crisis (already …)Architects of AUA : Jacques BerceHenri CirianiMichel Corajoud, Georges Loiseau, Annie TribelJean Tribel. It was designed on a shipping container basis.

Dozen of them were build ; then the production has to stop because of the oil crisis in the 1970′. But a lot of them are still existing ; and were  still in use in camping near Bordeaux (lège-cap-feret, but they are currently for sale).
