Book ID: 76161

Joining Eero Saarinen's office as a designer and growing into the role of in-house photographer, Richard Knight captured hundreds of images of the behind-the-scenes process there. This unique personal account of the process, culture, and history of Saarinen's office is prefaced by a foreword by Cesar Pelli, and a contextual essay by Pierluigi Serraino, highlighting the critical role of large-scale model building practiced in Saarinen's office. A traveling retrospective of Saarinen's work will culminate at Yale in 2010.
