Saarinen House and Garden: A Total Work of Art Hardcover – March 1, by Gregory Wittkopp (Editor), Diana Balmori (Editor)5/5(4). Saarinen's philosophy is evident in Saarinen House and its garden, whose design, furnishings, and decoration were a collaborative effort of the entire Saarinen family--Eliel, who designed the house.

In Melanie Simo and I had included a chapter on Dan in our book Invisible Gardens, and in Spacemaker Press published Ward’s photographs, along with others by Ezra Stoller, in a book, The Miller Garden: Icon of Modernism, featuring essays by Gary Hilderbrand and David Dillon.

By this time Dan and I had become great friends. Saarinen House Exterior Architecture and Landscaping Decorative elements are integral to the architecture, and include patterned brickwork and leaded glass windows with triangles, squares, and rectangles. Similar patterns, shapes, and the color of the brick are echoed inside the house, linking the inside and outside.

Saarinen House, the home of architect and designer Eliel Saarinen and textile designer Loja Saarinen, is an important s American house and the site of a dramatic garden. This book documents the history and diverse design elements of the house and garden, which have been recently restored.

The house that architect Eero Saarinen completed in for J. Irwin Miller and his family in Columbus, Indiana, easily qualifies as a paragon of residential midcentury Modernism.

Amazingly, the glass and steel, 6,square-foot pavilion, with interiors by Alexander Girard and landscaping by Daniel Kiley, has remained intact all these years. Before this book came out, finding early design work by Eliel Saarinen was pretty limited to academic tomes with period black and white photography, and not very thorough in the visual department.

This book is delightful in that it has contemporary photos of his work in Finland and the US/5(7). item 3 The House & Garden Book of Bedrooms and Bathrooms by Highton, Leonie (Hardcover) 3 - The House & Garden Book of Bedrooms and Bathrooms by Highton, Leonie $ +$ shipping.

Between andEero Saarinen designed and built a home for the family of industrialist J. Irwin Miller, chairman of Cummins, maker of engines and generators. With a flat roof and glass walls, the Miller House is a mid-century modern example reminiscent of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
