By Robert McCarter
Foreword by Thomas P. Campbell

The complete monograph on Marcel Breuer (Hungarian, 19021981), this new volume details the life and work of the last of the first generation of Modernist architects. Illustrated with never-before-seen material, it presents an account of his entire career, from his beginnings at the Bauhaus in prewar Germany through his collaboration with Walter Gropius and the establishment of his own practice in the United States.

In addition to discussing Breuer's principles and design theories, it is the only book to feature all of the architects buildings, including the UNESCO headquarters in Paris and the Whitney Museum of American Art [now The Met Breuer] in New York, as well as his iconic furniture, such as the Wassily and Cesca chairs.

With a special foreword by Thomas P. Campbell, Director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, this essential monograph is a must-have addition to every library of art, architecture, design, or Modernism.
