"One of the most distinguished American architects of the mid-twentieth century, Eero Saarinen was born in 1910 in Finland, coming to the United States with his family in 1923. He was trained at the Yale University School of Architecture. After a period spent in Europe, he returned to the United States to join his father, Eliel Saarinen, in his practice in Cranbrook. Apart fro m h i s early furniture designs with Charles Eames, Saarinen's first truly personal success was in the competition for the Jefferson Memorial at St. Louis, Missouri, in which he submitted a design for the huge arch, clad in steel, which stands in t ha t c it y. Saarinen was responsible for several innovations, especially the use of thin high-performance curtain walls on a huge scale, a technique that he developed in the IBM Research Center at Yorktown, New York, and in the Bell Research Labo rat or ies at Holmdel, New Jersey. He also designed the first large-scale concrete-shell buildings in the United States (the Kresge Auditorium at the Massacussetts Institute of Technology), the controversial American Embassy in Grosvenor Square, Lond on, ano ther embassy building in Oslo, and the Banque Lambert headquarters in Brussels. But it was perhaps in his designs for airports (especially the TWA terminal at Kennedy Airport, New York, with its emphasis on a feeling of movemnt, and the D ulle s Int ernat ional Airport near Washington, with its mobile lounges) that Saarinen made his most original contribution to the architecture of our time." Slight browning to edges of text block, tiny foxing marks on top of text block, sligh t wavi ness at top edge of picture pages. Dust jacket has slight browning on spine and edges, light edge wear/wrinkling along top edge, light rubbing, light crease in laminate on front panel. Very Good/Very Good
