dc.descriptionView of the south façade, south wing, close view of concrete structure at base; The 1953 commission for UNESCO headquarters in Paris was a turning point for Breuer: a return to Europe, a return to larger projects after years of only residential commissions, and the beginning of Breuer's adoption of concrete as his primary medium. Plans for the three buildings of the headquarters were prepared jointly by Marcel Breuer of the United States, Pier Luigi Nervi of Italy and Bernard Zehrfuss of France; they were approved by an international panel of five architects: Lucio Costa (Brazil), Walter Gropius (United States), Charles Le Corbusier (France), Sven Markelius (Sweden) and Ernesto Rogers (Italy). American architect Eero Saarinen was also consulted. Source: UNESCO [United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization]; http://portal.unesco.org/en/ (accessed 12/26/2007)en_US
