Marcel Breuer was at the height of his career when he designed the Whitney Museum in 1966. The integrity, beauty, and honesty of the building’s design, materials, and execution define it as one of the most distinguished examples of mid-century modern architecture in New York. Join Beyer Blinder Belle Senior Associates Brett Gaillard and Miriam Kelly for a tour and discussion of 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 a space for the Metropolitan Museum of Art to exhibit modern and contemporary art.
