Marcel Breuer (1902-81) is celebrated as a furniture designer, teacher and architect who changed the American house after his emigration from Hungary to the US in 1937. More recently historians, architects and--with the reopening in New York of the great megalith of his Whitney Museum as the Met Breuer--a larger public are gaining new insights into the cities and large-scale buildings Breuer planned. Often seen as a pioneer of a "Brutalist modernism" of reinforced concrete, Breuer might best be understood through the lens of the changing institutional structures in and for which he worked, a vantage developed in the fresh approaches gathered here in essays by a group of younger scholars. These essays draw on an abundance of newly available documents held in the Breuer Archive at Syracuse University, now accessible online.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Barry BergdollPublisher: Lars Muller PublishersPublished: 06/19/2018ISBN: 9783037785195Pages: 368Weight: 2.30lbsSize: 9.40h x 6.60w x 1.30d
