Building of the Day

The Marcel Breuer Buildings at Bronx Community College

Oct 12 at 12–1:30pm
2155 University Avenue, Bronx, NY 10453

Original Architect: Marcel Breuer, 1956-1964

This tour will showcase five Marcel Breuer-designed buildings constructed on the uptown NYU campus (now Bronx Community College) between 1959 and 1970. These modernist structures of reinforced concrete and steel provide a dramatic contrast to the Neo-Classical style of architecture seen elsewhere on campus. Visitors will tour Silver Hall (now Colston Hall), Tech I (Polowczyk Hall), Tech II (Meister Hall), Community Hall and Begrisch Hall, which was designated a New York City landmark in 2002.

Co-sponsored by DOCOMOMO / NY-Tristate.
