The TWA Terminal at JFK, the St. Louis Arch, and the pedestal table and chair are some of Saarinen's most recognizable contributions to architecture and design, yet he designed dozens more innovative modernist buildings that continues to influence today's architects and designers. This exhibition of Saarinen's work at The Museum of the City of New York included architectural models, vintage photographs, family memorabilia, architectural drawings and furniture designed by Eero Saarinen. It closed on Sunday, January 31, 2010. Here are some but not all of the highlights of the exhibition.
