Revealing Marcel Breuer's Masterpiece of Modernist Architecture


When The Met Breuer opens to the public on 18 March 2015, visitors will have the opportunity to experience Marcel Breuer’s masterpiece, occupied by the Whitney Museum of American Art from 1966 to 2014, as never before. This remarkable video brings you behind the scenes as the Metropolitan Museum of Art—under the guidance of architects Beyer Blinder Belle—restores this architectural icon, paying loving attention to its signature concrete walls, stone floors, bronze fixtures, and lighting. Major corporate support for The Met Breuer is provided by Sotheby's. This video was produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
