About The Film

EERO SAARINEN: THE ARCHITECT WHO SAW THE FUTURE
Directed by Peter Rosen
2016, 70 Minutes
with special guests Devin Coleman and Bob Burley

A renewed interest is emerging in mid-20th century architects and artists who exploded the comfortable constraints of the past to create a robust and daring modernist America. Eero Saarinen: The Architect Who Saw the Future examines the life of an architectural giant who envisioned the future. His sudden untimely death at age 51 cut short what continues to be one of the most influential legacies in American architecture, a body of timeless work that stands apart from the clutter of contemporary design and continues to inspire architects today.
