New York's Center for Architecture will host a book signing for Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future. Following the world-renowned architect's career from the 1930's to his premature death at the age of 51 in 1961, the book is published in conjunction with the international traveling exhibit of the same name, on view through December 6 at the Kunsthalle Helsinki in Helsinki, Finland.
The book's editors Eeva-Liisa Pelkonen and Donald Albrecht will offer a presentation for the event, which will be moderated by Juulia Kauste, executive director of the Finnish Cultural Institute in New York.
Following its debut, the "Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future" exhibit will travel to Oslo, Brussels, Detroit, Washington, D.C. (The National Building Museum), Minneapolis, St. Louis, New York (The Guggenheim Museum, and New Haven, Connecticut (Yale University). The tour concludes in 2010, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of Saarinen's birth.
The book is published by Yale University Press, in association with the Finnish Cultural Institute in New York, the
Museum of Finnish Architecture, Helsinki, and the National Building Museum, Washington, D.C., with support from the Yale University School of Architecture.
