Work Of Art: Whitney Museum of American Art by Marcel Breuer-


The Whitney was opened in 1966 and was designed whilst Breuer was at the height of his career. With its granite clad walls, its single window and its protruding overhang, the front of the Whitney is quite intimidating. Is is unlike any other building in its vicinity and very sculptural. The space was designed with minimal internal supports and windows so that it could be extremely flexible, changing as and when it needed to suit each exhibition. These pictures were taken by Architecture photographer Ezra Stoller.

The Square Colosseum

The Esposizione Universale Romana or EUR for short is a suburb, about 20-minute ride away from Rome, built by Italy’s infamous dictator Benito Mussolini as a site for the 1942 world’s fair to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Fascism and the beginning of the Fascist era. The fair never took place due to the Second World War, and Mussolini’s regime was toppled in 1943. More than 70 years later, the monuments at EUR still stand in all their creepy glory, and the most famous building amongst it is Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, better known as Colosseo Quadrato or the Square Colosseum.
