Nice slide show of Eero Saarinen’s work on Slate. Between the TWA Terminal, the Gateway Arch and the Pedestal Chair he’s certainly left an imprint.

I lived in late 1950s dorm he designed which was rumored to have been the same design used for a prision. It was not well liked but I don’t recall it was really that bad. Of course it didn’t help being across the street from the Robie House. Hard to compare to that.
