Otava Publishing Company, Helsinki, 1990. Folio (13”) in cloth with dust jacket; Fine/Near Fine. 355 pp.; Extensive Catalogues of Works: interior design, architecture and urban planning; References and Bibliography. Text in English in three columns; 100’s of Plates and photographs.

Prepared with the assistance of the Finish Museum of Architecture, this is the definitive guide to the life-work of Finnish born Saarinen. He immigrated to the USA in 1923, and finished his illustrious career working with his son, Eero Saarinen. His work included the Helsinki Railway Station, the Finnish Pavilion at the Paris World Fair in 1900 (in concert with two other young architects),and Christ Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. The City: Its Growth, Its Decay, Its Future (1943) encapsulated his philosophy of the role of architecture in productive yet pleasant urban design and, among other themes, his warnings about the social cost of skyscrapers. From the Preface: “The central theme in Eliel Saarinen’s architecture was the ‘total work of art’, treating man’s environment as an aesthetic whole.” (Heavy volume; overseas purchasers advised to check shipping costs.)
