Who’s Eero Saarinen?

Eero Saarinen was the preeminent architect in 20th century modern design. Born in 1910, he immigrated to the United States from Finland when he was 13 years old. Saarinen created masterpieces inspired by exploration and expansion. In 1947, he entered the design contest for a monument that would honor Thomas Jefferson and St. Louis’ role in the westward expansion of the United States. In February 1948, Saarinen’s design for a stainless-steel Arch was unanimously chosen. His timeless design fulfilled Luther Ely Smith’s vision for the riverfront memorial and continues to represent St. Louis’ advancement in the 21st century.
