Marcel Breuer, architect : the career and the buildings by Isabelle Hyman( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the course of an illustrious 50-year career that took him from the Bauhaus to London, Harvard University, and then New York, architect Marcel Breuer (1902-1981) generated a huge, influential, and remarkably varied body of work. Among his hundreds of buildings are such architectural triumphs as the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. This is the first comprehensive study of Breuer's architectural oeuvre. To write it, architectural historian Isabelle Hyman utilized for the first time extensive unpublished archival material and collected hundreds of photographs, plans, and sketches. While Breuer has been best known for his tubular steel chairs and other furniture designs, this book makes clear why he received dozens of architectural honors and awards and was called "a monumental figure among modern architects."

Die Bühne im Bauhaus by Oskar Schlemmer( Book )

2 editions published in 1925 in German and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1925 erschienen, legt das Buch die Bühnenkonzeption des Bauhauses in ihren Grundzügen dar. Die Bauhaus-Bühne ist die der Weimarer Zeit; sie wurde wesentlich durch Oskar Schlemmer geprägt. Er konfrontierte sie mit dem expressionistischen Theater, nachdem er 1923 die Bühnen-Abteilung übernommen hatte. Im gleichen Jahr wurde Lászlò Moholy-Nagy ans Bauhaus berufen, der sich für abstrakte kinetische und luminaristische Erscheinungen interessierte. Farkas Molnár beschäftigte vor allem die Bühnenarchitektur. Das Nachwort von Walter Gropius ist 1961 für die unter dem Titel „The Theater of the Bauhaus“ erschienene amerikanische Ausgabe geschrieben worden. Darin rekapituliert er die Aufgaben und Leistungen der Bühne im Bauhaus und die eigene Versuchsarbeit als Architekt
