contributed by yep

Beginning in the 1950s, NYU began expanding both their downtown and uptown campuses. In 1956, the administration hired renowned modernist architect Marcel Breuer, who had experience working with colleges such as Sarah Lawrence and Vassar, to develop a master plan for the future University Heights. The architect's avant-garde style differed greatly from the classical design used by Stanford White. Instead of using marble, Breuer opted for concrete, instead of ornate fixtures, the Hungarian chose simplicity. During the 50s and 60s, observers began criticizing classical works for being simply pretty, but not necessarily functional, making Breuer's aesthetic perfect for the times.
