A Letter to Marcel

In 1953 Robert Snower wrote to Marcel Breuer to ask if he would be interested in designing a home for his family in Kansas City. Breuer and his team spent the next year working with Mr. Snower to customize every element of the home. It was completed in 1954 and is one of only two houses Breuer constructed west of the Mississippi River. Over 60 years later the home has been restored to its original condition. This is the story of its creation.
