|Discussion||Deere West Office Building Commentary
"A long steel-framed, glassed-in bridge connects this three-level addition of weathering steel to a seven-level corporate headquarters of similar construction that was designed by Eero Saarinen...and completed in 1964. Within Deere West there's a quarter-acre, glass-roofed, multilevel garden used in part for 'outdoor' dining; an inviting cafeteria and other attractive eating areas are located nearby."
from Sylvia Hart Wright. Sourcebook of Contemporary North American Architecture: From Postwar to Postmodern. p108.
