La prima monografia su 17 progetti in ambito residenziale di ELIEL ed EERO SAARINEN in Finlandia e negli Sati Uniti. Include un colloquio con l’architetto paesaggista Susan Saarinen, che in un affascinante viaggio della memoria illustra ricordi di suo padre e suo nonno. Una preziosa fonte di ispirazione per coloro che sono interessati agli ambienti e stili dall’art nouveau alla metà del primo Novecento.


They are architecture’s most famous father-son duo: Eero, the younger Saarinen, designer of such masterpieces as the TWA Terminal Building at Kennedy Airport, and his father Eliel, celebrated for triumphs such as the art nouveau railway station in Helsinki. Lesser known, but no less impressive, are their houses, which, regardless of style, share a belief in architecture as a total work of art. Featuring carefully designed interiors, often with custom-made furniture, they effortlessly merge with the landscape, and reward residents with exciting views, inviting nooks, and opulent furnishings. For the first time, Saarinen Houses presents seventeen remarkable houses built over a span of six decades, in Finland and the United States. 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, each project features original drawings and archival photos, as well as new interior and exterior shots. This book is a revelation for the Saarinen family faithful and an inspiration for anyone captivated by beautifully designed homes.

  • The first book about Eliel and Eero Saarinen’s residential work
  • Includes an interview with landscape architect Susan Saarinen, discussing her memories of her father and grandfather
