Eero Saarinen: The Architect Who Saw The Future
Screening and Talk, USC
Wednesday, April 05,2017, 06:30 PM




Don’t miss this special FREE screening of the new documentary film “Eero Saarinen: The Architect Who Saw the Future” followed by a discussion with his son, filmmaker, Eric Saarinen at 6:30 PM at the Gin Wong Auditorium, Harris Hall, USC School of Architecture on Wednesday, April 5th.

The film explores the life and work of Finnish-American modernist giant Eero Saarinen (1910-1961). Best known for designing St. Louis’ iconic Gateway Arch and the General Motors Technical Center in Warren, Michigan, Saarinen also designed the TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy International Airport, Yale University’s Ingalls Rink and Dulles Airport.  His sudden death at age 51 cut short one of the most influential careers in American architecture.

In addition to the film, the architect’s son, director of photography and co-producer of the film, Eric Saarinen, ASC (Lost in America, The Hills Have Eyes, Exploratorium) will be on hand to discuss his father’s work and the cathartic journey of making this film.

“Closure is something I didn’t have with my dad,” says Eric Saarinen, “But I forgive him for his genius. He figured out a way to be important across time, so even though he died young, he is still alive.”

“Eero Saarinen: The Architect Who Saw The Future” – Wednesday, April 5th, 2017 6:30-8:30PM. FREE. Gin Wong Auditorium/Harris Hall (HAR), University of Southern California (USC), Exposition Park, Los Angeles.
