Eaton Center: Out of the Land Hardback



Eaton Center is the expression of the values of a century-old company with deep roots in the American Midwest.

Rising above the rolling terrain of northern Ohio that was once farmland, the building takes its place between woods and a reflecting pond, with a bearing that recalls a manse in the countryside.

The experience of Eaton is planar: it extends space and views, both close and distant, through the landscape, connecting the building and its people to the place, and the values held in common.

Eaton Center is the product of a dedicated client and design team and the values that brought them together to create a special place to work.

Authored by architecture critic Dr Michael J. Crosbie, this highly visual book documents that collaboration between Eaton and the design team and the resulting dramatic transformation of the land into Eaton's new home on the North American plain.
