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 while it will make its national broadcast debut in December on PBS as part of the station’s American Masters series, we’re bringing you an exclusive first look at the documentary, shown below.
MID FILM SCREENING

Mayan Theatre, 110 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203
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.
