Throwback Thursday: Marcel Breuer's Hooper House II

November 11, 2010 · Posted in Architects, Modern Design, Throwbacks 

In 1958 Edith Hooper made one of the best decisions of her life.  I speak specifically about her decision to build a 7,800 sq. ft. house for $150,000 (just over $19/sq. ft.), and with Marcel Breuer at the helm it was bound to be good-looking too.  The house was featured in Architectural Record Houses of 1961, and was recently published in Dwell with its new owner.  Thank you Bauhaus and Marcel Breuer for a beautiful and unique house in Baltimore, Maryland.
