Preliminary Plans

In 1973, the European Investment Bank in Luxembourg asked Breuer to act as design consultant for a new headquarters building. Shortly thereafter, the bank hired the London-based firm Denys Lasdun & Partners as the architect. Breuer designed a narrow eleven-story tower raised on columns resembling trees. The tower was bent slightly creating a subtle v- or boomerang shaped building. Breuer’s health forced him to stop working on the bank a year later in 1974.
