Kleinhans Music Hall by Brian Carter

The building, which is arguably the most significant of a series of projects that were designed collaboratively by Eliel and Eero Saarinen, opened in 1940. It is the home of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and has a reputation as a notable space acoustically. The Saarinens and Eames also designed furniture for the building some of which is still in use.
This book is one of a series that includes publications on notable mid-century buildings in Buffalo designed by Gordon Bunshaft and Minoru Yamasaki. buffaloBOOKS also includes publications on the work of Steven Holl, O’Donnell & Tuomey, Thom Mayne, Tod Williams & Billie Tsien and other notable international architects.
