Saarinen, who studied sculpture in Paris before going to architecture school,pushed technology to create his unique visions. During his lifetime, and maybe even now, some architects and critics were dismissive because he did not design and build in one style.
“Style” is a much overused concept. The belief that all structures can even be catalogued by style distorts the history of architecture and distracts from carefully looking at the building and deciding what the architect and client were trying to achieve, whether they did achieve it, and if it was worth trying to achieve.
