Eero Saarinen - Architect for St. Louis Gateway Arch

Last night we visited the Mildred Lane Kemper Museum (first visit ever) and saw the exhibit "Eero Saarinen Shaping the Future".

Eero Saarinen was the genius architect that designed the Gateway Arch in St. Louis.

We enjoyed seeing photographs of other buildings and houses that he was the architect for, as well as seeing pieces of furniture that he designed (some which I know I've seen around before).

If all you know about Saarinen is his work on the Arch - then you need to check out the exhibit (closes April 27th).

So that's what Eero did...often his name comes up in the crosswords I do.
