Format: Paperback
This volume is part of Taschen's series of monographs on the the Twentieth Century's greatest architects. This book follows the Series usual format by beginning with an introductory biographical section. It then moves onto Saarinen's most famous works such as the TWA Terminal, Dulles Intenational and Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. Each building receives a few pages of description and several full page photographs. This is all done in 96 well presented pages.

Eero Saarinen was on the leading lights of American Mid-Century Modernism. If you are interested in the period, you must become familiar with Eero Saarinen's work. This is a reasonably priced volume and a great introduction to the works of one of the Twentieth Century's greatest masters. Highly recommended.

For the size of the book, it represents a diverse project portfolio not just focuses on the very famous works.

Eero Saarinen has created some of America's most iconic architectural symbols. Yet, few everyday people know his names. Everyone instantly recognizes his most famous structures. This book brings you up to speed in a hurry. Fast, easy, interesting book about the man and his buildings.

This is an alright intro. book (and reasonable at $10.00) but it almost brings up more questions than it answers. It is a good intro. to Saarinen and his major works, thoguh I had hoped for a bit more overall....
