Description

By Barry Bergdoll, with a contribution by John H. Beyer

Following the opening of The Met Breuer, this fascinating Bulletin contextualizes the architectural masterpiece now dedicated to displaying The Met's collection of modern and contemporary art. Designed by one of the twentieth century's most visionary architects, the Breuer building is a Brutalist icon and a work of art in its own right, known for its monumentality and stark purity of materials. Providing not just a history of the building commission, but also charting the artistic journey of Marcel Breuer from Bauhaus-educated furniture designer to world-renowned architect, this informative publication both records and contributes to the rich history surrounding Breuer and his landmark museum.
