The exhibition features never-before-viewed sketches, models, photographs, furnishings, and a specially commissioned documentary film. The retrospective has been seen as something of a comeback for Saarinen, who was arguably the most important architect in the U.S. (having designed iconic buildings for some of the most powerful corporations and clients of the time) when his career was cut short by his death in 1961 at the age of 51.
Organized by the Finnish Cultural Institute in New York, the Museum of Finnish Architecture in Helsinki, and the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., with the support of the Yale University School of Architecture, the exhibition will make its final stop at Yale University in the spring.
