About This Item: 
Despite the brevity of his career, Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) was one of the most celebrated architects of his time. Born in Finland, he immigrated to the United States in 1923, where his father was director of the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Here, the young Saarinen took courses in sculpture and furniture design, and began close friendships with fellow students Charles and Ray Eames, as well as Florence Knoll. As a designer, Saarinen moved easily between the so-called International Style and Expressionism, utilizing a vocabulary of bold colors, curves and cantilevers, many of his pieces have remained in production, becoming twentieth-century furniture icons. As an architect, Saarinen is responsible for some of the most potent architectural symbols of American identity including Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., and the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. Published in Poligrafa's By Architect series, this volume surveys Saarinen's life and career.
