MARCEL BREUER was an architect and designer, one of the most influential exponents of the International Style; he was concerned with applying new forms and uses to newly developed technology and materials in order to create an art expressive of an industrial age.

JOHN HEJDUK “What is decisive about his work is that it leads to a different place, on which is both alien and inalienable: a place which consecrates Architecture with mysteries that are no longer decipherable within the ordinary code of mimesis… Hejduk’s work unconceals what cannot be seen when one only looks at cities, bridges, towers, swing-sets, prisons, ferris-wheels, even farmland. His architecture apprehends the Invisible in them”.-Daniel Libeskind about Hejduks work in the Mask of…

EMILIO AMASZ is an Argentine architect and graphic and industrial designer, strives in his projects to "give poetic form to the practical" and he is considered one of the most important forerunners of what is known today as "green architecture."

STEVEN HOLL likes to wake up early in the morning and begin his projects with pencil, paper, and watercolors. This freehand working up of an architectural space perhaps serves as a clue to the sometimes idiosyncratic results. It is Holl’s freedom from established clichés of Modernism and Postmodernism that allows him to create such spaces. There is a painterly attitude to composition and playful use of materials anchored within Holl’s metaphors.

ADOLF LOOS was both an architect and theorist, who became known for the radical theoretical statements he made condemning decoration. This uncompromising stance made Adolf Loos a pioneering functionalist. His buildings were rigorous examples of austere beauty, ranging from conventional country cottages to planar compositions for storefronts and residences. Distinctly was the emphasis on precious materials and the creation of flowing spaces and architectural composition with volumes of space.

AGREST & GANDELSONAS - Their architecture has been consistently characterized by an intertwining of practice and theory. In conjunction with their critical texts they have built a provocative and rich body of work that ranks as one of the most thoughtful in contemporary architecture. Their projects resonate with a sense of poetry and play, which is echoed in their built work by their sensuous use of materials and attention to detail~ review by Eugene Tenenbaum
