Eero Saarinen was one of the world's most celebrated architects at the time of his tragic death at the age of 51. He designed and built more than thirty-five buildings in his lifetime and collaborated on thirty more with his father - the renowned architect Eliel Saarinen. Eero's career began as far back as childhood: as the son of the esteemed Eliel - designer of Cranbrook Academy in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan - Eero grew up in an intellectually charged environment fuelled by art and design, and entered his first architectural competition while still in school. 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 - amongst them a range of residential colleges, a hockey rink at Yale University, an auditorium and chapel at the Massachussetts Institute of Technology, American embassies in London and Oslo, and corporate complexes for General Motors, IBM, and BellLaboratories (that spearheaded the creation of the modern suburban office park).

Organized chronologically in fourteen chapters, it traces Saarinen's life and career from his childhood in Finland through the collaboration with his father to his iconic airport projects of the 1960s. Overall, it documents more than sixty commissions and competitions. The approximately 300 ill
