A friend from Helsinki has been part of a team working to put together an exhibition of Eero Saarinen, the visionary architect who designed the GM Tech center and the St. Louis Arch, to name just a few. The exhibition is currently at Cranbrook, where Eero and his father, Eliel Saarinen designed many of the buildings, as well as furniture, fabrics and decorative elements. It runs from November 17 thru March 30, 2008 and will make stops in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, St. Louis, Washington, D.C., ending in New Haven, CT in 2010. It’s being organized by The Finnish Cultural Institute in New York, The National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., and The Museum of Finnish Architecture with the support of Yale University School of Architecture.
