Marcel Breuer

He developed the prototype of a residential skyscraper which, in the coming, would be built by others of an architectural cooperative. His first architectural project was the Harnischmacher House in Wiesbaden, 1932 (almost destroyed during the war). Breuer moved to the United States in 1937 and soon became a professor at Harvard University. His designs were UNESCO building in Paris, “De Bijenkorf” department store in Rotterdam, United States Embassy in the The Hauge, Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, Sedia Chair (1928), Poltrona – arm chair (Wassily, 1925) which was the first arm chair produced in steel tube and was called Wassily because it was designed for the Wassily Kandinsky at the Bauhaus.
