Review:

"Breuer's tough, brutalist designs were sculptural and expressive, and their ambition and scale has come back into fashion. This is a serious study." —Financial Times

"It is truly a must-own for all architectural enthusiasts." —Interview Online

"In a beautiful new tome from Phaidon, architect Robert McCarter gives us the most complete monograph of the pioneering modernist." —Fast Company's Co.Design

"An impressive and weighty new monograph by Robert McCarter... Should realign Breuer's position in the canon of modern masters... Covers 100 buildings and 24 furniture designs, and is a joy to spend time over, with its beautiful array of photographs, and McCarter's exhaustive - but never exhausting - text on the designs... It is time to rightfully rank Breuer alongside Mies, Wright and Le Corbusier, and this publication should aid that cause." —The Irish Times

"This impressive and weighty new monograph by Robert McCarter should go some way to realigning Breuer's position in the canon of modern masters." —TLS (Times Literary Supplement)

"Meaty, well-illustrated... [Breuer] knew how to wield the expressive powers of modern materials." —The Observer, The New Review
