nycurbanism The Technology II building in the Bronx, by architect Marcel Breuer, who would have been 114 years old today. The brutalist Building is part of the NYU Uptown Campus (now Bronx Community College). In 1894 NYU expanded their Washington Square campus to the Bronx, in hopes of creating a traditional campus away from factories and tenements. Architect Sanford White (of McKim, Mead & White) design a 40-acre site at 180th street overlooking the Harlem River in the Bronx, featuring neoclassical buildings that include the famous Hall of Fame for Great Americans. By the 1920’s the campus was starting to put financial strain on the downtown university. In the mid-sixties brutalist architect Marcel Breuer attempted to revive the campus with monolithic buildings like the one pictured above. NYC entered a financial crisis in the 70’s with the Bronx seeing some of the worst urban decay, NYU sold the Bronx campus in 1973 to the state for $62 million. The Bronx Community College moved in and the campus has barely been developed since. Currently architect Robert A.M. Stern has design a new library and classroom building which are under construction. If you are fan of architecture and around University Heights, we highly recommend you check out the campus!

  •   tuscanbred Love your background infos. Btw - it's Stanford White, not Sanford. 3d
  •   pete._.street This building SCREAMS Breuer. Was just at the remains of the old Pirelli building in New Haven and these two are right out of the same litter. 3d
  •   1305us Brutalist architecture. Right at home in Stalinist countries. What an eyesore! 3d
  •   nycurbanism @pete._.street Love the Pirelli Building, too bad Ikea got rid of half of it. There is a very similar Breuer building to the Bronx one at Yale in New Haven. 3d
