Horst E. & Ingelore K. Ehlers:
EERO SAARINEN. PROJECTS FOR INDUSTRY AND COMMERCE:
GENERAL MOTORS, IBM, BELL, DEERE

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 Washington.

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 Award.

Here, detailed analysis of hitherto unpublished architectural plans and photographic material celebrates Saarinen's outstanding architectural achievement in these four major projects for industry and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.
