Eero Saarinen, of Finnish origin, became one of the leading American
post-war architects, winning international acclaim for his sculptural
buildings for TWA at Kennedy Airport in New York and Dulles Airport in
Between 1948 and 1961 he was responsible for designing three of America's
largest research and development centers for General Motors, IBM and Bell:
companies that epitomized scientific progress, rapid technological development
and intense interdisciplinary teamwork.
In 1965, Saarinen's design for an administration center for Deere & Co.
at the headquarters of the worldwide John Deere Organization received
the American Institute of Architects' highest accolade: the First Honor
Here, detailed analysis of hitherto unpublished architectural plans and
photographic material celebrates Saarinen's outstanding architectural
achievement in these four major projects for industry and commerce.
