The Paul Rudolph Foundation announced the fourth installment of its salon series on Modern architects with a discussion led by Jayne Merkel. Merkel is an architectural historian and critic. The former director of the graduate program at the Parsons School of Design in New York, she has published widely in Progressive Architecture, the Harvard Design Magazine and the Cincinnati Enquirer. Her book, Eero Saarinen, is the first holistic examination of Saarinen’s life, work and evolution since the architect’s passing in 1961. Merkel will share her research and findings on one of America’s most celebrated architects, discussing the buildings, projects and furniture of Eero Saarinen Associates. Sean Khorsandi, the foundation’s co-director will introduce. Proceeds from this event benefit the Paul Rudolph Foundation.
