New book offers a guided tour of landmark American modernist Miller House

NEW YORK, NY.- Constructed in 1952 by design geniuses Eero Saarinen, Alexander Girard, Dan Kiley, and Kevin Roche, Miller House and Garden integrates home and landscape in a composition of forms honoring historical precedents without forgoing innovation. Part of Assouline’s renowned memoire series, this book offers a guided tour of astounding places and spaces within the newly reopened National Historic Landmark—and with it, the aspirations of the Millers and the spirit of an era. Today, the property offers visitors the opportunity to experience one of the finest expressions of American modernism, an integration of house and landscape that draws upon historical precedents without repeating them, enfolding them in compelling compositions and spaces that capture the genius of its designers, the aspirations of its owners, and the spirit of their time. Commissioned by industrialist and philanthropist J. Irwin Miller and his wife
