This event is part of Archtober’s virtual Building of the Day program series. Join us for a virtual tour of the Marcel Breuer Buildings at Bronx Community College.
In 1956, Marcel Breuer was asked to develop a master plan for New York University’s “Uptown” campus in the Bronx overlooking the Harlem River. From 1959 to 1970, five buildings were constructed to Breuer’s designs. They offer a Modern counterpoint to the Beaux Arts works of Stanford White that form the adjoining original campus core. In 1973 NYU sold the campus and it became Bronx Community College, part of the CUNY system. John Arbuckle from DOCOMOMO US/New York Tri-State will be leading the tour.
Architect: Marcel Breuer and Associates
Co-organized by DOCOMOMO US/New York Tri-State.
This event is free! But please consider a supporting Archtober, NYC’s annual architecture and design month celebrating the rich cultural and architectural history of the city.
