Marcel Breuer House Virtual Tour with Q&A

February 9, 2021

Located on the grounds of Kykuit in Tarrytown, NY, the Marcel Breuer House, a 1949 midcentury house designed by Marcel Breuer, was the first of three houses showcased in the Museum of Modern Art’s “House in the Garden” series of model dwellings for the postwar American family. After the exhibition, John D. Rockefeller moved the house to the Rockefeller estate at Pocantico. In 2007 the house was deeded to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Learn more about this remarkable home with Kimberly Miller, architect and managing director of Greenrock Corporation, and Katrina London, manager of collections & curatorial projects at The Pocantico Center, as they present a virtual tour of the house, focusing on its architecture, art, and furnishings.

Presented by the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Saving Places program and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund
