Saarinen's buildings are analyzed in all their surprising variety, with an open Eero Saarinen book of their differences, rather than an insistence on an individual style. Marvin B. Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen originally studied sculpture, and this influence is apparent in much of his architecture. He largely initiated a trend, however, toward exploration and experiment in design—a trend that departed from the doctrinaire rectangular prisms that were characteristic of the earlier phase of modern architecture. Such wide-ranging approaches to his architecture made Saarinen difficult to classify, and interest in his work dissipated soon after his death.

Merkel's handsome volume presents the first Eero Saarinen book comprehensive survey, and seeks to demonstrate how Saarinen could be "mainstream and avant-garde at the same time. The author, with a refreshing willingness to deal with negative material as well as positive, asks and answers the very interesting question of the reasons for the decline in Saarinen's reputation after his untimely death. By then, she had cultivated a quality in herself she called "intelluptuous"—a combination of intelligence and voluptuousness that he clearly found irresistible.
