Description/Abstract

Marcel Breuer designed a house for a development community in Palm Springs, California in 1938, a year after he emigrated to the United States. The project was never realized, and an interesting house in terms both of Breuer's career and of the history of transplanted modernism was thereby foifeited. Among the Marcel Breuer Papers preserved at the Syracuse University Library are unpublished sketches, working drawings, correspondence, and specifications which make possible a reconstruction of the Palm Springs house and its program, and furnish new particulars about working procedures in the Gropius-Breuer partnership.
