By Joachim Driller

The Hungarian-born architect Marcel Breuer (190281) rose to prominence as a student under Walter Gropius at the Bauhaus and became head of the furniture workshop. He emigrated to the United States in 1937, where he taught at Harvard University, influencing a whole generation of practitioners.

Breuer, like many architects who work on both small- and large-scale commissions, used residential architecture as a laboratory for his design ideas. Not only is the quality and quantity of Breuer's residential output impressive, but seen in sequence it reveals the development of his spatial mastery and expertise. Breuer's houses have had a profound influence on residential architecture around the world.

This monograph is a comprehensive study of Breuer's house designs from 1923 to 1973. Richly illustrated with drawings, plans, and archival photography, the book provides in-depth insight into the working methods of a key twentieth-century architectural figure.
