for breuer fans only.
On Friday, we celebrated Walter Gropius' birthday with his house in Lincoln, Massachusetts. Funny enough, Gropius' partner and protégé, Marcel Breuer, was born just a couple of days after his Bauhaus mentor (May 21). And if you've been following claass HAUS for any amount of time (if not thanks for joining us), you know that I have a pretty insatiable appetite for all things Breuer. In fact, the Hungarian-born, AIA Gold Medal-winning icon appears in more of my posts than any other architect (take that Frank Lloyd Wright).
So in honor of my favorite maker of modernist boxes and concrete brutes, here's a rundown (with links!) of every Breuer-related post.

A seminal piece of Modernist design, this 1951 icon broke the shackles of domestic tradition.
