Eero Saarinen

In 1951 Eero Saarinen was commissioned by the University of Michigan to design a master plan for the North Campus, an expansion of the original campus on the north side of the Huron River. His plan was based on the ideas developed at Cranbrook with clusters of buildings harmonizing with the natural environment. Saarinen himself designed the School of Music (Earl V. Moore Building). Both interior and exterior walls are brick; narrow vertical windows contrast with the horizontal brick patterns.
