1 sketch : graphite ; 16 x 15 cm.
One of 13 sketches showing design ideas for UNESCO headquarters building. Appears to be related to two letters from Eero Saarinen to Lilian Swann Saarinen describing planning meetings with French officials and other architects. Identification on attachment (handwritten): Eero's sketches of Unesco, Goes with letter Feb 16/52 Handwritten note on sketch: A funney snaky [sic] building - like Aalto's or some of Corbus; solves some problems but Mies would never forgive me.
