9780714842776: Eero Saarinen

One of the world's most celebrated architects at the time of his death at the age of 51, the Finnish-born, American-trained master of Modernism designed and built more than thirty-five buildings in his brief lifetime, and more than thirty other projects in collaboration with his father and such celebrated architects as Charles Eames and Ralph Rapson. Saarinen's career began in childhood. As the son of renowned architect Eliel Saarinen, designer of Cranbrook Academy in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Eero grew up in an intellectually charged environment surrounded by art and design. Eero Saarinen trained and practiced with his father until the early 1950s, when he established his own firm and began to design some of the most influential institutions of his day, among them residential colleges and a hockey rink at Yale University, an auditorium and chapel at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, American embassies in London and Oslo, and corporate headquarters for General Motors, IBM, and Bell Laboratories.
This volume traces Saarinen's life and career from his childhood in Finland to collaboration with his father, through his iconic airport projects of the 1960s, documenting more than sixty commissions and competitions. Extensive illustrations include period photography by Ezra Stoller, Balthazar Korab, and others; rarely seen original sketches, concept drawings, and plans; and more recent color photography.

About the Author:

Jayne Merkel was the architecture critic for the Cincinnati Enquirer from 1977 to 1988 and is a former director of the graduate program at Parsons School of Design in New York.

From The New Yorker:

In 1956, when Saarinen made the cover of Time, he was America's most renowned architect. His sculptural modernism-evident in such commissions as the T.W.A. terminal at Kennedy Airport, the CBS building, and the St. Louis Arch-was in perfect accord with the country's postwar mood. He trained at the school founded by his father, the celebrated Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen, and established important relationships there with his future collaborators Charles and Ray Eames. An indefatigable worker, he oversaw more than forty staff architects at the height of his practice, and created in detail hundreds of possible designs for each project. After his death, in 1961, his work fell into critical neglect. Merkel's handsome volume presents the first truly comprehensive survey, and seeks to demonstrate how Saarinen could be "mainstream and avant-garde at the same time."
