Marcel Breuer Digital Archive, 1953-1981

The second phase of digitization of and creation of access to the papers of architect and designer Marcel Breuer (1902-1981), focusing on the second half of his career, and enhanced functionality of the current online resource.

The Marcel Breuer Digital Archive, 1953-1981, will digitally unite source materials from the second half of Breuer's career, during which Breuer's services were sought by powerful business, governmental and religious institutions. These source materials (70,000 items in total) will join those relating to Breuer's early life, which have already been digitized as part of an NEH-funded grant received by Syracuse University Library's Special Collections Research Center in 2009 and made accessible through the website, http://breuer.syr.edu. Syracuse University will enhance the functionality of the existing site through the creation of a "lightbox" feature that will allow users to save images that they intend to use for further research or for teaching purposes. A digital humanities pilot project, Mapping Marcel Breuer, will create a geospatial mapping tool that will help users visualize Breuer's professional networks and the locations of his buildings.
