Harry Seidler

Polly in the SMH letters:

My father, Harry Seidler, was not a student at the Bauhaus – the institution closed when he was 10 (‘‘Distinguished already, as the last Seidler design’’, July 25-26). Nor was his architectural training in Europe, as Brian Zulaikha of the Australian Institute of Architects says. He studied with the emigre Bauhaus teachers Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer at Harvard and Josef Albers at Black Mountain College in the 1940s.
