Eero Saarinen by Jayne Merkel( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the world's most celebrated architects at the time of his death at the age of 51, the Finnish-born, American-trained master of Modernism designed and built more than thirty-five buildings in his brief lifetime, and more than thirty other projects in collaboration with his father and such celebrated architects as Charles Eames and Ralph Rapson. Saarinen's career began in childhood. As the son of renowned architect Eliel Saarinen, designer of Cranbrook Academy in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Eero grew up in an intellectually charged environment surrounded by art and design. Eero Saarinen trained and practiced with his father until the early 1950s, when he established his own firm and began to design some of the most influential institutions of his day, among them residential colleges and a hockey rink at Yale University, an auditorium and chapel at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, American embassies in London and Oslo, and corporate headquarters for General Motors, IBM, and Bell Laboratories." "This volume traces Saarinen's life and career from his childhood in Finland to collaboration with his father, through his iconic airport projects of the 1960s, documenting more than sixty commissions and competitions. Extensive illustrations include period photography by Ezra Stoller, Balthazar Korab, and others; rarely seen original sketches, concept drawings, and plans; and more recent color photography."--Jacket

"Through the eye of photographer Balthazar Korab, this book provides an insider's view of the buildings and working methods of Eero Saarinen. It joins iconic photographs of Modernist masterpieces in their prime with many rarely seen images of Saarinen's buildings and their design, construction, models, and details, enriched with intimate portraits of his professional colleagues, home, and family." "The photographs are grouped by project, and the projects are arranged in chronological order according to the date of the commission. Defining images for each building - often the famous and most published views - open the sections, accompanied by images of models and construction photographs (when they exist in the Korab archive), with exteriors, interiors, and, in some cases, related gardens and building additions, Related images of interest, as well as plans for the buildings, are reproduced in appendices."--Jacket

Eero Saarinen : an architecture of multiplicity by Antonio Asensio Román( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eero Saarinen now stands as one of the great masters of twentieth-century American architecture. It was not always so. A lightning rod for controversy, Saarinen languished in critical purgatory for decades after his untimely death in 1961. As the son of the revered Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen, he fought an uphill battle to establish his own credible voice in the architectural profession. Jealous colleagues and a dogmatic press dismissed him as a showman. Eero Saarinen: An Architecture of Multiplicity finally corrects this slight of history. The first critical evaluation of the architect's work in more than twenty years, this landmark publication revives one of the most daring and successful careers in the history of modern design." "With this groundbreaking and lavishly illustrated monograph, historian Antonio Roman sheds new light on Saarinen's most important works and argues convincingly for his relevance as a pivotal figure in the history of American architecture."--Jacket

5 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nacido en Finlandia, Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) emigró a los Estados Unidos en 1923, cuando tenía 13 años. Creció en Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, donde estudió escultura y diseño de muebles. Allí estableció una estrecha relación con sus compañeros Charles y Ray Eames, y también se convirtió en un buen amigo de Florence Knoll (entonces Schust). Criticado en su tiempo por no tener un estilo identificable, Saarinen desarrolló una notable producción, que dependía de colores, formas y materiales. Sus diseños parten de estructuras innovadores y formas esculturales sin dejar de lado las consideraciones pragmáticas. Algunos de sus proyectos, que pivotan libremente entre el estilo internacional y el expresionismo,utilizando un vocabulario de formas curvas y en voladizo, se convirtieron, a lo largo del siglo XX, en iconos del diseño de muebles
The TWA Terminal by Ezra Stoller( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Time and expedience have taken tolls on the building. As it has been adapted to the needs of contemporary air travel, the terminal has fallen into disrepair and lost much of the grandeur that made it a symbol of all that was modern and new. Ezra Stoller's sharp-eyed photographs offer a return trip to the terminal at the time of its opening, when dapper travelers moved smartly through its majestic spaces."--Jacket
