Marcel Breuer, architect : the career and the buildings by Isabelle Hyman( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the course of an illustrious 50-year career that took him from the Bauhaus to London, Harvard University, and then New York, architect Marcel Breuer (1902-1981) generated a huge, influential, and remarkably varied body of work. Among his hundreds of buildings are such architectural triumphs as the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. This is the first comprehensive study of Breuer's architectural oeuvre. To write it, architectural historian Isabelle Hyman utilized for the first time extensive unpublished archival material and collected hundreds of photographs, plans, and sketches. While Breuer has been best known for his tubular steel chairs and other furniture designs, this book makes clear why he received dozens of architectural honors and awards and was called "a monumental figure among modern architects."

6 editions published in 2003 in German and English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The designer and architect Marcel Breuer (1902-1981) numbers among the most important and prolific designers of the twentieth century. While today he is best known for his furniture, he regarded himself first and foremost as an architect. The tubular steel pieces created by Breuer during his tenure at the Bauhaus such as the Wassily armchair and also the aluminum and molded plywood pieces from the 1930s must be counted among the great classics of modernism. In the thirties, Breuer began a second, highly successful career as an architect. In the postwar era he was one of the most influential und internationally renowned architects of his time. The retrospective produced by the Vitra Design Museum pays tribute to Breuer's well-known contributions to 20th century design history. Yet it also brings renewed attention to his architectural works which have fallen somewhat into oblivion in the past decades. This catalogue is the first to give proper attention to both areas of Marcel Breuer's work. "Marcel Breuer - Design and Architecture", includes essays by several renowned experts on Marcel Breuer, such as Joachim Driller, Isabelle Hyman, Otakar Máčel and Barry Bergdoll. In addition to these and several other essays, the catalogue includes texts by Marcel Breuer and personal accounts by I.M. Pei and Robert F. Gatje, a former partner of Breuer
