Met Breuer – SOLD OUT
Tour Time: 12:00pm
Marcel Breuer (1966); Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners (2016)
945 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10021
Marcel Breuer was at the height of his career when he designed the Whitney Museum in 1966 and was the recognized
master of using what he called “close to Earth materials,” particularly stone and concrete. The integrity, beauty, and
honesty of the building’s design, materials, and execution defines it as one of the most distinguished examples of
mid-century modern architecture in New York.
During this tour, project team members from The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Beyer Blinder Belle will discuss
the immersive task of restoring the iconic building – including extensive research and an understanding of Breuer’s
approach to design and materials – and transforming it into The Met Breuer, a space for presenting exhibitions
of modern and contemporary art.
