Between Earth & Sky

Between Earth & Sky

 

 

 

This book celebrates Eero Saarinen's work and documents his contributions to architecture. It is based on Brian Carter's studies and research of this notable architect and the buildings that he designed. Professor Carter's work has resulted in a number of published articles and two exhibitions. The exhibition 'Between Earth and Sky', first shown at the University of Michigan in 1999 and subsequently across America and Canada, was made possible through an enthusiastic collaboration between Brian Carter and the renowned architectural photographer Balthazar Korab. The success of that venture resulted in a second exhibition in 2001. Curated by Brian Carter, ad including working drawings alongside photographs by Balthazar Korab, it focused specifically on the design of the General Motors Technical Center. Subsequently shown at the University of Texas in Austin, this exhibition opened at the Graham Foundation in January 2003 and is scheduled to go to other venues in America and Europe. I would like to thank professor Carter for embarking on these studies of Eero Saarinen and his accomplishments. He has done this in such a way that it conveys how the designs of this outstanding Finnish-American architect create a connection between sculpture and architecture, how ideas and materials flow together, and how everything from the smallest element to the largest structure can be integrated to create an inspired whole."
