A Designing Family
The Saarinens

Saarinen House at Cranbrook exemplifies Eliel Saarinen's belief that an architect's mission is total design from the building and its setting to the spoon on the table inside. He believed in including his talented family in design as well.  This class will focus on Eliel Saarinen's buildings at Cranbrook, but will begin with his work in his native Finland and branch out to include designs by Lola, Pipa, and Eero Saarinen.

Visitors welcome
The talk will begin in Farmington Hills Public Library at 7:30 pm after a 6:45 pm business meeting.
