Abstract:

"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."--BOOK JACKET.
