St. Louis Retrospective of Gateway Arch Architect

The Gateway Arch is the iconic symbol of St. Louis. It's also the structure most associated with Finnish architect Eero Saarinen. But in his relatively short career, Saarinen had a hand in hundreds of other projects, from office buildings to home furnishings.

St. Louis, MO – KWMU's Rachel Lippmann reports on a new retrospective at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum in St. Louis that hopes to expand understanding of the architect and his influence.


Listen to the story here.



Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future continues through April 27, 2009 at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum at Washington University in St. Louis.
