Eero Saarinen 1910 - 1961
Architect, born in Kirkknonummi, Finland. Taken to the USA in 1923 by his father, the Finnish architect and designer Eliel Saarinen, he studied sculpture in Paris and received a graduate degree in architecture from Yale (1934). In partnership with his father (1936-50) he helped define Modernist architecture in a series of public, institutional, and commercial buildings known for their innovative technology and use of materials.
These include the stainless steel Gateway Arch, St Louis (1948-64), General Motors Technical Center, Warren, MI (1951-6), and the John Deere & Co Building, Moline, IL (1957-63). His later sculptural designs are known for their formal imagery, such as Ingalls Hockey Rink, Yale University (1956-9), TWA Terminal, Kennedy International Airport, New York (1956-62), and Washington Dulles International Airport, Chantilly, VA (1958-62). His last work and only skyscraper was the CBS Headquarters, New York (1960-4).
Outstanding among the second generation of modern American architects, he viewed ‘the way [a] building is used’ as determinative of its style, and his work ranged stylistically from his early essays in the International style to the extreme plasticity of his later buildings, each project exhibiting a unique design solution. He was posthumously awarded the Gold Medal of the American Institute of Architects in 1962.
