Come Fly With Me: TWA Terninal by Eero Saarinen-


Saarinen designed the Trans World Airlines terminal at New York’s JFK airport in 1956. The huge vaulted structure was built on site by pouring concrete into elaboarte wooden moulds forming the wing like structure. The terminal took six years to complete. The groundbreaking terminal made a name for TWA setting them apart from other airlines. Unfortunately the terminal became obsolete as more people started to travel by air, it was not able to accomodate them. The terminal recently underwent a $20 million rennovation to bring it back to its former glory. These photos were taken by Ezra Stoller, Balthazar Korab and Charles Eames.

    If it’s possible for an airport to be sinuous, this is it.

    Meanwhile I’m sitting at my gate at LaGuardia, which isn’t so much an airport as it is a collection of rotting buildings...
