It's been slow getting the page updated here. As some of you might know, I have recently relocated to Orlando Florida. I just started a job down here, my third week starts Monday. Happy Thanksgiving!

Designer of the month [November]: Marcel Breuer

As quoted from Design Within Reach. I will simply call him the master of bent steel.

"In 1928 Breuer left the Bauhaus and moved to Berlin and then to England in 1935 when the Nazis made it impossible for anyone who had been a part of the Bauhaus--a "hotbed of Bolshevism"--to practice architecture. In 1937, he joined Walter Gropius in his architectural practice and also at Harvard as a professor. Breuer moved to New York in 1946 to found his own architectural firm, and like Corbusier, chose concrete as his medium of choice. He used concrete in his design of the Whitney Museum of Art."
