IBM Building, Boca Raton, Florida, USA (circa 1971)
Designed by Marcel Breuer and Robert F. Gatje, the commission for IBM’s Florida office came on the back of the completion of Breuer’s Research Centre for IBM in La Gaude, France.
The design and plan of the buildings is similar to that at La Gaude, albeit two of the buildings have been constructed here. To minimise the impact of hurricanes and flooding, the buildings are raised above the ground and to create infill for this, three quarries were created on site during construction for the extraction of sand. When completed, the quarries were flooded and formed part of the landscaping for the complex. View high resolution
