Discussion Geller House Commentary

"In 1943, Breuer had developed a plan for a house which he termed 'binuclear', separating the living-dining-kitchen area from the sleeping area. The two wings of the house are connected by an entrance hallway. The Geller house was the first of these to be built, and is an exciting complex. Both the house and the adjacent guest house have 'butterfly roofs' which slope inward and are centrally drained. The main house and guest house are so positioned that they created semi-enclosed, courtyard-like areas which invite outdoor living. Many of Breuer's houses since have employed this 'binuclear' principle."

— Peter Blake. Marcel Breuer, Architect and Designer. p89.

The Creator's Words

" '...The art of architectural composition...lies in assembling simple elemental forms to arrive at basic solutions. The space bounded by such elements can be free and fluent, connected both vertically and horizontally, but the components encompassing it will be crystallic, man-made —forms that differ from other natural forms, though they are part of the same composition: wood against metal, space against void, a cube against a tree.' "

— Marcel Breuer. from Cranston Jones, captions and introduction. Marcel Breuer: Buildings and Projects 1921-1961. p21.
