PRODUCT DETAILS
The Alan I W Frank House - the Modernist Masterwork by Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer offers a rare opportunity to explore the large, luxurious house designed by Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus, and Marcel Breuer, leading architect and furniture designer of the twentieth century. This beautifully designed volume celebrates the Alan I W Frank House in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Built for Pittsburgh industrialist Robert Frank and his wife, Cecelia, in 1939, Gropius and Breuer designed every aspect of the house and its site. The architects were able to experiment on a scale practically unheard of in modernist homes. The Frank family's dedication to preserving it with original Breuer-designed furnishings and features intact has made this architectural gem a valuable example of a unique point in modern architecture that has been seen by few until now.

In this seminal volume, more than 200 photographs by iconic photographers such as Ezra Stoller, Richard Pare, and Richard Barnes, showcase this expansive modernist home, while never-before-seen architects' plans and correspondence from the Foundation's archives highlight the collaboration that led to the creation of its exquisite balance of architectural proportions, textures and colorations.
