More than anyone else, Eero Saarinen succeeded in expressing the optimism of America in the 1950s and 1960s. Iconic examples like the St. Louis Gateway Arch, the General Motors Technical Centre in Michigan and the TWA passenger terminal at Kennedy Airport, recently renovated beautifully, symbolize the aesthetics of a bright future.
Peter Rosen, photographer and son of Saarinen, offers a unique glimpse into the life and work of his father and grandfather Eliel Saarinen. He explores an inspiring period and its abrupt end in 1961 when, at the peak of his fame, Eero Saarinen died suddenly. Featuring admirers such as Kevin Roche, Robert Stern and Rafael Vinoly.
