Architecture Books – Week 37/2022
I'm back from break!
The latest review on A Weekly Dose of Architecture Books:
When Eero Met His Match: Aline Louchheim Saarinen and the Making of an Architect by Eva Hagberg, published by Princeton University Press.
Architecture Book News:
Vanity Fair features an excerpt from Christine Madrid French's new book, The Architeccture of Suspense: The Built World in the Films of Alfred Hitchcock, a book I'd love to get my hands on.
The Architect’s Newspaper has “10 book recommendations from AN editors to read before summer ends” — I wager these could be read year-round.
The recent "Design Special Section" in the New York Times highlighted four books: "on gnarly trees with pedigrees, lost Miami buildings and vintage construction toys, along with a deep dive into African textiles."
With Eva Hagberg's When Eero Met His Match: Aline Louchheim Saarinen and the Making of an Architect coming out [this] week, I'm taking a look inside the book Aline is holding in the photograph on the book's cover. Eero Saarinen on His Work was edited by Aline and released in 1962, the year after Eero unexpectedly died at just 51 years old. (Click through to see images inside Eero Saarinen on His Work.)
