MARCEL BREUER: BUILDING GLOBAL INSTITUTIONS. Ed. by Barry Bergdoll and Jonathan Massey. Lars Muller Publishers, Zurich, 2016. 400 pp. with 200 ills. 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783037785195 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: Marcel Breuer (1902-1981) is celebrated as a furniture designer, teacher, and architect who changed the American house after his emigration from Hungary to the U.S.A. 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.
