FROM FRONT FLAP:
'Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future' offers a new and wide-ranging look at the entire scope of Saarinen's career, including the architect's network of clients, friends, and colleagues; his collaborative process; and the materiality, form, and theatricality that place his work within the intellectual and artistic culture of his era. This is the first book on Saarinen to incorporate significant research and materials from the newly available archives of his office, and includes the most complete portfolio of Saarinen projects to date -- a chronological survey of more than 100 built and unbuilt works, previously unpublished photographs, plans, and working drawings.
Lavishly illustrated, this major study shows how Saarinen gave his structures an expressive dimension and helped introduce modern architecture to the mainstream of American practice. In his search for a richer and more varied modern architecture, Saarinen become one of the most prolific and controversial practitioners of his time.
