Eero Saarinen: A Reputation for Innovation

From the press release: "The Nordic Heritage Museum showcases the work and life of one of the 20th century’s most prolific architects — Eero Saarinen, who built the TWA Terminal at New York’s JFK Airport, Dulles International Airport in Washington D.C., and the St. Louis Arch. Guest curated by Mina Marefat, architectural historian and professor at Georgetown University, the exhibition provides an overview of Saarinen’s key architectural projects and furniture pieces such as the Womb Chair and the Tulip Chair. An array of photographs and documents tells his biography from his childhood in Finland to his life in America, as well as his little-known covert service to the U.S. Office of Strategic Services during WWII."
