Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future
Finnish Cultural Institute, 2007
Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future is the first major exhibition to examine the architect’s wide-ranging career from the 1930s through the early 1960s. Saarinen (1910–1961) was one of the most prolific, unorthodox, and controversial masters of 20th-century architecture. His iconic designs, ranging from the tulip chair to the 630-foot-tall Gateway Arch in Saint Louis, helped create the international image of the United States in the decades following World War II. Saarinen also continued Yale’s commitment to modern architecture through the swooping concrete vaults of Ingalls Hockey Rink. Organized by the Finnish Cultural Institute in New York; the Museum of Finnish Architecture, Helsinki; and the National Building Museum, Washington, D.C., and presented in conjunction with the Yale University School of Architecture, the traveling exhibition features drawings, models, furniture, photographs, films, and ephemera.
