Marcel Breuer, Architect: Life and Work, 1922-1955

The arrangement and description of the papers of architect and designer Marcel Breuer (1902-1981) and the creation of an online digital resource that integrates sources on Breuer from several cultural repositories.

This project, Marcel Breuer, Architect: Life and Work, 1922-1955, will digitally unite source materials from the earlier years of Breuer's architectural career to give architectural historians, students of modernism, and the merely curious access to an authoritative, digital scholarly edition. At the close of the project (May 2011), the following results will be realized: 1) The arrangement and description of Syracuse's Marcel Breuer collection, including file-level EAD inventory and collection-level MARC record. 2) A Web-based digital edition (tentatively called "Marcel Breuer, Architect: Life and Work, 1922-1955)," mounted on the eXtensible Text Framework (XTF) foundation, that integrates vital Breuer sources from a variety of repositories. 3) Usability testing of the digital edition by Syracuse University students, including those enrolled in the School of Architecture.
