Part of the event
The late architecture legend Eero Saarinen's life is seen through the eyes of his estranged son Eric Saarinen in the 30th instalment of American Masters. A giant in American architecture, Eero designed national historic landmarks such as the Gateway Arch in Missouri, New York's TWA Flight Centre at John F. Kennedy International Airport, Yales University’s Ingalls Rink, Morse and Ezra Stiles Colleges and Virginia’s Dulles Airport.
In American Masters – Eero Saarinen: The Architect Who Saw the Future, Eric goes on a cathartic journey in which he explores his father's greatest works and makes peace with the genius who abandoned his family.
American Masters has earned 28 Emmy Awards, an Oscar, three Grammys, two Producers Guild Awards and many other honours.
