Photography Matters: Balthazar Korab’s Legacy in the Saarinen Office

Jun 23, 2010

This paper explores the unique contributions made to the disciplines of architecture and photography by Balthazar Korab (b. 1926) by examining two specific projects from the Saarinen office (TWA Terminal and Miller House) with which Korab had direct and sustained involvement during the processes of design, construction and documentation. Korab’s portfolios of these projects offer an opportunity to reexamine distinctive representations of canonical architecture produced by a photographer with unique insights into the design and constructions thereof.
