Modern in Denver says
Modern In Denver is proud to present an exclusive advance screening of the new documentary, “Eero Saarinen: The Architect Who Saw the Future,” followed by a live Q&A with Director of Photography (and Eero’s son), Eric Saarinen. The film headlined opening night at New York’s Architecture and Design Film Festival last month, and will debut nationally on PBS in December.

Modernist architectural giant Eero Saarinen created some of the most iconic and visionary buildings in our nation’s history, including National Historic Landmarks like the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and the General Motors Technical Center in Michigan. Saarinen also designed New York’s TWA Flight Center at JFK International Airport, Yale University’s Ingalls Rink and Morse and Stiles Colleges, Virginia’s Dulles Airport, and modernist pedestal furniture like the Tulip chair.

Eero’s sudden death at age 51 cut short one of the most influential careers in American architecture. Today, Saarinen’s work stands apart and continues to inspire, especially amongst renewed interest in 20th-century architects and artists who defied the comfortable constraints of the past to create a robust and daring American aesthetic.

Shot in 6K with the latest in drone technology, the film provides a unique opportunity to travel with Eero’s son on a showcase of the master’s timeless body of work. Tickets are just $15, and include access to the post-screening Q&A with Eric Saarinen. All tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. When they’re gone, they’re gone.
