The Vitra Design Museum is bringing its traveling exhibition “Marcel Breuer: Design & Architecture”
to Atlanta in partnership with the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA). Breuer’s most famous furniture designs as well as models of 12 noteworthy projects—including St. Francis de Sales Parish in Muskegon, Mich., and Saint John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minn.—will be on display in MODA’s galleries and in the Breuer-designed Atlanta-Fulton County Central Library. In a bid to raise awareness about preserving the library (shown here), AIA Atlanta also is organizing a lecture series on the famed architect’s life and influence. Oct. 27 through Jan. 16.
