From the swooping concrete vaults of the TWA Terminal at JFK Airport to the 630-foot-tall Gateway Arch in St. Louis, the iconic designs of Eero Saarinen (1910-1961) captured the aspirations and values of mid-20th-century America. Potent expressions of national power, these and other Saarinen-designed structures--including the GM Technical Center, Dulles International Airport, and John Deere headquarters--helped create the international image of the United States in the decades following World War II. "Eero Saarinen: Shaping the Future" offers a new and wide-ranging look at the entire scope of Saarinen's career. This is the first book on Saarinen to incorporate significant research and materials from the newly available archives of his office, and includes the most complete portfolio of Saarinen's projects to date--a chronological survey of more than 100 built and unbuilt works, previously unpublished photographs, plans, and working drawings. Lavishly illustrated, this major study shows how Saarinen gave his structures an expressive dimension and helped introduce modern architecture to the mainstream of American practice. In his search for a richer and more varied modern architecture, Saarinen become one of the most prolific and controversial practitioners of his time.Exhibition schedule: Helsinki Kunsthalle, Finland (October 6---December 6, 2006) Centre International pour la Ville, l'Architecture et le Paysage (CIVA), Brussels (Spring 2007) National Building Museum, Washington, D.C.

This book begins with an overview in the first chapter of tax increment financing fundamentals that are generally uniform across the jurisdictions. The following chapters then survey the experience of different states with tax increment financing, in connection with urban redevelopment projects. The states were chosen not so much to represent distinct differences in treatment of TIF across the U.S., but rather to demonstrate a sampling across different geographic regions, among small and large states, urban and rural. The chapter authors describing the experiences in the states report on: the income stream tapped for the tax increment; the form of long-term project financing, usually in the form of bonds; the need for urban redevelopment as part of the TIF package; the presence or need for a plan; and the presence or need for public participation. To conclude this examination of the state of the law, the final chapter is an updated version of an article that first appeared in the law review for the ABA Section of State and Local Government Law, The Urban Lawyer. The article examines how state courts have construed TIF bonds in light of constitutional limits on borrowing, a subject that is important but not easily treated in sufficient depth in the state chapters we included."
