Marcel Breuer à Glanville. La Villa Sayer
The book published on the Sayer Villa designed by Marcel Breuer is the third volume of the collection Lieux d'architecture, directed by Cyril Brulé and Christelle Lecœur.
In 1972, Babette and Louis Sayer commissioned Marcel Breuer to build their house in Normandy, near Deauville: a unique adventure, atypical for a couple from their background, which resulted in a feat that was as technical as it was poetic, carried out jointly by the American office and the French office of the architect, under the direction of Mario Jossa.
This second home will remain the only house built in France by the Bauhaus architect, who emigrated to the United States in the 1930s. Nestled in the slope, under an audacious veil of white concrete, this achievement constitutes the adaptation of an American type for French family life. Beyond this residence, we will trace the long career of Marcel Breuer, best known for his tubular steel chairs, but also the author of dozens of public buildings in the United States and Europe, including the Unesco headquarters in Paris, the Flaine ski resort, and as many remarkable houses.
