Today's archidose #530

Here are some photos of the TWA Flight Center (aka TWA Terminal) at JFK Airport by Eero Saarinen, 1962. Photographs are by Bryan Kelley and were taken during an OHNY tour of the building led by restoration architects Beyer Blinder Belle.

  1. Really admire Saarinen and the building. But don't know why both exterior and interior feels a bit unhuman. The lack of furnishing? Lack of contrast between material and texture?

    Still admire the architect's creativity. Only to imagine how spectacular it would be if were built with current technology of polished glass, metal and plastic...

  2. Awesome interiors that look great even 40 years later... saw this from over on Daily Architecture

  3. Remarkable for being a public space that large without a lick of advertising.
