Eero, the younger Saarinen, designer of such masterpieces as the TWA Terminal Building at Kennedy Airport, and his father Eliel, renowned for triumphs such as the art nouveau railway station Helsinki, are architecture’s most prominent father-son duo. Their homes are less well-known but no less impressive, as they all share a belief in architecture as a complete work of art, regardless of style. They seamlessly blend with the landscape, rewarding residents with exciting views, inviting nooks, and opulent furnishings. They feature carefully designed interiors—often with custom-made furniture—that seamlessly blend with the landscape and reward residents with exciting views, inviting nooks, and opulent furnishings.
Saarinen Houses presents seventeen remarkable houses constructed in Finland and the United States over a six-decade period for the first time. Each project includes original drawings and archival photos, as well as new interior and exterior shots, ranging from Eliel’s early-twentieth-century Villa Pulkanranta—an eclectic mix of local Finnish design traditions and international influences—to Eero’s Miller House, one of the most significant examples of modern domestic architecture in the United States. This book is a revelation for Saarinen family devotees and an inspiration for anyone enamoured with beautiful architecture.
