Abstrakt: This paper reviews the influences of the engineer Pier Luigi Nervi among others on the work of Marcel Breuer, to discover how Nervi's influence marked a watershed in his work. The paper also discovers how the prolific use of pre-cast faceted molded facades in his later work had its origin in the experimentations and structural concepts of Nervi. This search for the use of creative structural solutions caused him to continuously seek collaboration with audacious engineers. His friendship with and knowledge of the work of Felix Candela and Amancio Williams, thanks to his short collaboration with the architect Eduardo Catalano in his office, also influenced in Breuer's later use of concrete shells.
