Breuer, The Whitney Museum of American Art (now The Met Breuer)

  1. I would love to see a video about the de Young museum's building. It reminded me of this one where the upper portion of the building protruded outward, I felt so suspenseful just looking at it!

  2. I would love to see you do a video like this featuring Marcel Breuer's Abbey Church in Collegeville, MN. That building is surely a precursor to this and easily as good a masterpiece as this… Possibly the most beautiful Brutalist building ever produced in my book…

  3. If ever there was an iconic NYC building from the 1960s it is Breuer's Whitney. Part of that quality comes from its form — a cube cut away to create dramatic cantilevers clad in dark granite. With a few minimalist gestures Breuer succeeded in making highly original architecture. I think we should be thankful that both Koolhaas and Graves were passed over when they sought the commission to expand it. Both of those schemes look like bad jokes.
