Here’s one hour during the holidays when you won’t be longing for Downton Abbey. PBS will premier American Masters – Eero Saarinen: The Architect Who Saw the Future on December 27. Tune in to explore the life of Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen (1910–1961), who designed New York’s TWA Terminal at JFK Airport, Yale University’s Ingalls Rink, St. Louis’ Gateway Arch, and many other visionary buildings. Saarinen also designed several extraordinary and still-thriving furniture collections, including the Pedestal Table, Tulip Chair and Womb Chair.
This one-hour program features Eero’s son, Eric Saarinen, as he visits the sites of his father’s work. As director of photography, Eric co-produced the film with director Peter Rosen.
