Breuer | Robert McCarter

The most complete monograph on the pioneering modernist.'Fast Company      

This acclaimed book is the most comprehensive published on architect and designer Marcel Breuer (1902-1981), looking in detail at all the houses, furniture, and public buildings he designed in Europe and the United States – from his beginning at the Bauhaus through his collaboration with Walter Gropius, and the establishment of his own practice in the USA. Written by acclaimed architect and writer Robert McCarter, the first edition of this book was described as a ‘serious study’ (Financial Times) that would help in ‘realigning Breuer’s position in the canon of modern masters’ (TLS).

The complete monograph on the last of the first generation of Modernist architects, Breuer      is the only book that examines both his design as well as his architecture, with detailed descriptions of his work – including commercial, residential, furniture, and unrealized projects, including all of his iconic furniture (such as the Wassily and Cesca chairs) and buildings (including the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris and the Whitney Museum in New York). Back in print due to popular demand, this new edition has a beautiful new cover featuring the global headquarters of Sotheby’s in New York.
